In response to the latest advice from State and Federal Governments, Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) has postponed ComVec 2020.

The conference, exhibition and drive day were scheduled to take place from May 13 to 15 at RACV Royal Pines Resort on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

HVIA chief executive Todd Hacking says ComVec plays an important role in the industry’s calendar.

"This decision has not been taken lightly, however HVIA’s first priority is for the health, safety and wellbeing of all event attendees , stakeholders and staff," Hacking says.

"We have had very positive feedback to the event program, under the theme ‘preparing your fleet for the new decade’.

"We think the content will continue to have strong relevance and, while it is way too early to make any pre-emptive announcements, it is our intention to reschedule the event later in the year if at all possible.

"In the meantime, we will continue to develop the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show," Hacking adds.

"There is no doubt that on the back of this current crisis, there will be a great need to reconnect with customers and colleagues.

"We will pull out all stops to ensure that the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show fulfils that role."

As well as the practical showcase and multi-streamed forum, a drive day at the RACQ Mobility Excellence Centre, Mt Cotton, was scheduled for the final day of ComVec 2020.

Owner//Driver wil publish details of a possible alternate date as information becomes available.
