Truck show defies economic trend


Queensland Truck and Machinery Show attracts new endorsements and expands line-up despite global economic downturn

The Queensland Truck and Machinery Show is attracting new endorsements and expanding its line-up despite the global economic downturn.

The Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland (CVIAQ), has announced it has filled all previous exhibition space amid a surge in manufacturers lining up to be part of the event.

"Our waiting list of additional exhibitors now stands at well over 200 applications, all of whom are keen to get a spot at the show for the first time," Wright says.

Fleet Partners, BP Australia and Brisbane’s RiverCity Motorway Group have all signed on as sponsors, and Wright predicts there will be a 20 percent increase in the number of exhibitors.

"The 2009 event is destined to be a record breaker on all fronts. Despite the economic uncertainty we are expanding," Wright says.

He says organisers are busy re-planning the show site after Brisbane City Council decided to close a section of the city to accommodate as many exhibitors as possible.

The 2009 Queensland Truck and Machinery Show will be held from May 14 to 17 at the Brisbane RNA Showground.
