Truck brands race to secure prime spots at Trucking Industry Show 2018

2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineNovember 3, 2017

The success of previous shows has caught the attention of this country‘s major truck dealers and they are now lining up to take part in next year‘s TMC Trailers Trucking Industry Show being held on 9 and 10 March 2018.

Heavy Trucks, suppliers of MAN and Western Star trucks, were first to secure space at the show, and they have been joined by the Sime Darby group who will be showcasing their Hino, Mack, Volvo, and UD Trucks brands along with their service and parts network, Truck Stops.

For the first time the show will include a secure driving area to allow test drives to be conducted away from the public areas.

Industry suppliers Bridgestone, CVC, CTS, Gough TWL, and SI Lodec are also keen to make full use of this popular show.

The show has moved to a new location that offers a better layout and the opportunity to offer more activities. Friday‘s Trade Day offers site holders the opportunity to liaise with clients away from the hustle and bustle of the full show day on Saturday.

Another important feature of the show will be the Careers Day, where people can look behind the scenes of the trucking industry. 

Saturday night‘s TMC Trailers Trucking Industry dinner is being held at the TMC Trailers factory. Now is the time to book as tickets are limited. Book at

The show is being held at the Canterbury Agriculture Park from 9am to 5pm Friday 9 and Saturday 10 March 2018. Entry is $5. Proceeds from the event will go to Ronald McDonald House SI and Child Cancer Canterbury.
