Big wheels in partnership for 2021 trade shows

Big wheels in partnership for 2021 trade shows HVIA chief executive Todd Hacking, Hastings Deering manager – general construction industries Simon Turnbull, and CCFQ chief executive officer Damian Long announce the event partnership.

Two mighty transport and machinery events are set to join forces in Brisbane next year.

The Civil Construction Field Days will run alongside the Brisbane Truck Show during Australian Heavy Vehicle Industry Week in May 2021.

The double billing is thanks to a collaboration between Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) and the Civil Contractors Federation Queensland (CCFQ).

HVIA chief executive Todd Hacking said the deal included reciprocal ticketing as well as regular bus transfers between the two venues.

“One ticket, two shows and free transport. That will make a lot of people happy,” Mr Hacking said.

CCFQ chief executive officer Damian Long said that group’s members used a lot of trucks and trailers, and the two industries were intertwined.

“Aligning transport and heavy equipment is a show-stopper and will not only ensure the industry can attend and look at the new developments, innovation and technology but it is also a great way for the family to come together on the weekend and learn more about our industries,” he said.

“Our industry builds the roads, tunnels, motorways, rail, pipelines, airports, and community developments that supports the Queensland economy. We are connecting Queensland.”
