In a first of its kind, the Casino Beef Week Promotions Committee has announced the running of the inaugural North Coast Petroleum Casino International Virtual Expo and Truck Show 2020.

This online event will run from October 3 to October 10.

The regular annual Casino Truck Show was scheduled to run on August 1, but the committee was forced to cancel the event following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the committee says the virtual expo and truck show will provide the transport industry with a platform to engage with the local communities until the regular event recommences in 2021.

"We cancelled the Casino Truck Show due to COVID-19 which disappointed all our loyal truckies, their families and the Richmond Valley region. However, Darren ‘Goodo’ Goodwin and the Casino Beef Week committee for the last month have been working on bringing some joy back into the truck show community," says Casino Beef Week president Frank McKey.

"Goodo came to me with the virtual expo and truck show, and we ran with it."

The virtual event is aiming to provide the industry with opportunities to partner, exhibit, promote and connect with the community.

Regular show sponsor North Coast Petroleum (NCPT) has also offered its support for the new virtual event. NCPT has been the show’s naming partner since 2016.

Part of the North Coast Petroleum Casino International Virtual Expo and Truck Show 2020 will be the running of two truck competitions – one for Australian trucks and, in this unique global situation, a section for international trucks.

The Casino Beef Week Promotions Committee says wherever they are in the world, truck owners or drivers will be able to enter their rig into the competition.

As in previous years, winners will be announced in various categories, including the top five judged elite and the coveted rig of the show award. Truck show competition entries will open on September 1.

With COVID-19 restrictions predicted to ease next year, the Casino Beef Week Promotions Committee has announced that next live show event will be held on Saturday, August 7, 2021.
