Melbourne International Truck, Trailer and Equipment Show

Since its inception in 2008, the Melbourne International Truck, Trailer and Equipment Show (ITTES) has grown into one of the nation’s largest dedicated industry events.

There will be over 350 equipment suppliers there this year, including most of the major truck manufacturers.

Also in store at this years event is a presentation hosted by the National Road Transport Hall of Fame, which will house Australia's largest collection of heritage trucks. 

It's not all vintage trucks on display though, the ITTES Show and Shine event will showcase some of the most stunning customised trucks you will see.

As with past events, there is heaps of new products on display that we are expecting, but there are bound to be some surprises thrown in too. We will be covering all the big news from the event, and will update this page as more information becomes available.
