The Brisbane Truck Show is no longer just a truck show – it’s a festival of all things trucking!

Festival of trucking
When the industry gets together every two years, it’s not just for the truck show – it’s everything in and around it.

Did you get down to South Bank when you were in town for last year’s Brisbane Truck Show? The music and BBQ at the Plough Inn were amazing. Up and down Little Stanley Street and throughout the precinct, there were great deals in every restaurant and bar, especially for Truck Show attendees.

Or did you see the amazing display from Volvo Group Australia in front of the casino in Redacliff Place? ‘Mack the Transporter’, the Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls’ pink trucks (looking Mickey Mouse even after stretching their legs across the Nullarbor), the Jimmy Barnes-inspired ‘Working Class Mack’ and a whole bunch of other new releases and favourites were all on show.


What about the Daimler display in Queen Street Mall? How good was it to see school kids ooh-ing and aah-ing at the spectacular line-up!

How about the Mack pop-up museum at Archerfield Airport? Did you see the UD on the barge on the Brisbane River with laser lights and fireworks? The Queensland Heritage Truck Show at Wacol? And of course, the amazing display of trucks and trailers in South Bank showcasing the capability and values of the Australian heavy vehicle industry.

There’s much more on top of this coming in 2021. It’s always a great time to be in Brisbane, but when the industry gets together every two years, it’s not just for the truck show – it’s everything in and around it: the events, activations, product launches, drive days, factory tours, the lunches and dinners, not to mention Australia’s favourite truck stop: the BTS Plaza Terrace BBQ Bar.

It’s not just a truck show – it’s a festival!

The Brisbane Truck Show will return to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre and South Bank Parklands from May 13 to 15, 2021.



If you’ve been to the Truck Show more than once you’ve probably got a favourite hotel, and a routine of how you start your day before heading to the show.

One thing is for sure – there are a lot of people looking forward to coming together in Brisbane when the show kicks off on May 13, 2021.

There’s a bucketload of meetings, conferences, dealer staff events and so on in the days preceding the show. So, the message is – get your accommodation sorted out as soon as you can.

Returning as the official accommodation manager for the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show is Ozaccom+. HVIA’s national events manager Noelene Bradley says Ozaccom+ was HVIA’s immediate choice to supply accommodation options for the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show, and have been assisting BTS attendees since 2009.

"Their experience and industry buying power provides exhibitors and visitors to the Brisbane Truck Show with the best available rates over the duration of the event," she says.

"They take the stress out of managing your individual, group or block accommodation requirements."
