HVIA Chief Executive Todd Hacking has responded to advice by Volvo Group Australia that the OEM will not be exhibiting at the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show.
“Naturally it is disappointing when one of our major exhibitors has to pull out of a show,” Mr Hacking said. “However it has happened before and we understand that COVID has impacted manufacturers to varying degrees. However, the show will go on.
“In fact the show floor is like a bucket of water – you pull out and the spot is instantly filled, as it is in this instance. That is how much demand there is for space and the 2021 show is a sellout.
“We know how much our industry and its customers are looking forward to getting together in Brisbane in May 2021 and most see it as the opportunity to reconnect and kickstart the industry.
“For us it is full steam ahead and we have exciting announcements about the show in the months ahead.”
