Australian Truck Show Calendar 2013


Over the next few months there are some interesting truck shows coming up around the country, and for your convenience we have created a list of them here.

Australian Truck Show Calendar 2013
Just one of the displays from last years Perth Truck Show

Some like the Perth and Brisbane Truck Shows are large "all the bells and whistles" affairs organised by their respective state industry groups, showcasing many major exhibitors. Then there are shows for the vintage and historical enthusiast, Show & Shine shows and also some rural shows that include agricultural trucks and tractors. In short, there is a show to cover most interests, although it will probably be a matter of organising to be in the right place at the right time for many. Most shows have a website or contact details where you can find out more information, view a flyer or see a full website.

The Perth Truck and Trailer Show is an important event for the Commercial Vehicle Industry Association (CVIA), a division of the Motor Trades Association of WA. The CVIA recognises the value of a large scale Show such as this, which showcases the most up-to-date vehicles, equipment, parts and accessories, and information relating to the trucking industry.
Plus as the major event for the industry, the Show offers networking opportunities through two scheduled functions - a cocktail party and gala dinner; plus the bar will operate across the weekend to provide a central place to meet clients and business associates.
