BIG TRUCKS rolled into Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre as stars of the largest indoor event to be held in Australia in the past 15 months.
The Brisbane Truck Show, billed as the largest auto exhibition in the southern hemisphere, was attended by more than 30,000 with an estimated economic impact to the Queensland economy of A$72 million.
BCEC saw 1,100 truck movements through its doors, with the exhibition featuring more than 300 exhibitors occupying all three levels of the venue. The event now extends beyond the convention centre with the South Bank Truck Festival taking over the parklands and engaging members of the community.
There were 19 associated events held at BCEC during the show, including seminars, breakfasts and dinners ranging from 10 to 370 attendees.
