All eyes on Sydney

With less than six months to go until the Australian Bus and Coach Show 2013, event organiser BusNSW reports strong support for the September show from all sectors of the bus industry.

BusNSW Executive Director Darryl Mellish says the interest in
the event shows suppliers are looking forward to profiling their
goods and services in the market.

“Industry suppliers are enthusiastic about our move to Sydney
Showground as it gives exhibitors and attendees a state-of-the-art
facility where all buses and booths can be displayed in the one
indoor arena,” Mellish says.

“Well over half the display areas and booths have been reserved
and we are only in the early stages of exhibitor

Sponsors for this year’s Australian Bus and Coach Show include
Transport for NSW, welcomed by Mellish and his team at BusNSW.

“We are very pleased that the NSW Government has recognised the
importance of the event and will be actively participating via a
large exhibition stand,” Mellish says.

“The NSW Government is projecting bus numbers to grow by 40
percent over the next 25 years and many of the vehicles and
services to be displayed will play an important role in meeting
this demand.

BusNSW Industry Development Manager Matt Threlkeld has had
discussions with a number of exhibitors who have indicated they
will be launching new products at the event.

“The dynamic nature of the industry means that suppliers have to
be innovative to meet the market,” says Threlkeld.

He says the Sydney show provides an ideal platform for the
introduction of new products and services to Australian and
International operators.

Whilst entry to the show is free and open to the public, this
year for the first time all attendees will be required to
preregister online or at the entry point.

“We will be introducing new technology to track attendance and
allow exhibitors to record visitor details for follow up
communications,” Threlkeld says.

“The show provides a real opportunity for suppliers to make
contact with the proprietors of bus and coach operations, as well
as fleet buyers from the mining, school and community transport

BusNSW will keep exhibitors, operators and industry participants
informed via the official show website leading up
