Trucking folk across Australia are winding up for the Brisbane Truck Show, after a long and depressing period during the pandemic, with a bit of luck, we can all meet up, talk trucks and trailers, plus everything else about our great industry again.
According to the organisers, the Heavy Vehicle Industry Association, no stone is being left unturned to ensure that visitors to the Sunshine State have a healthy and safe experience.
The signs are good for the second week of May, with the vaccine being rolled out across the country and state governments getting better at short sharp reactions to any outbreaks.
The trucking industry is one where we all have to work in our separate silos, but love to break out and catch up with all of the latest gossip, find out who’s who in the zoo or simply meet up with old friends at events like the Brisbane Show.
While looking forward to the event, we will all be hoping it is going to go well across the country so we all get to meet up on this biennial occasion. It would be a shame if an outbreak somewhere in the nation meant some of the trucking industry couldn’t make it to Brisbane’s South Bank, the Convention Centre, the Parklands and all of the bars and restaurants in the area , which we know will be buzzing.
If all goes to plan the whole of Brisbane will be buzzing, with the Civil Construction Field Days down the river at Hamilton Northshore, the NRL Magic Round is on in Brisbane the same weekend and out on the track, the TAB Doomben 10,000 is being run on the Saturday.
