THE ORIGINAL ROAD HAULAGE & TRUCKING EVENTS IN THE UK
Truckfest celebrated its 30th anniversary in style in 2012. With not only the largest competition entry number ever recorded at a staggering 1482 competing trucks at the Peterborough event in May but also the long overdue introduction of our new Irish event, which took place at the Kings Hall Belfast on August 18th & 19th. So successful was the event that year two will see Truckfest Ireland relocated to the purpose built facility known as Balmoral Park between Belfast and Lisburn.
Truckfest is extremely lucky with its media partners and in the case of the English & Welsh events Commercial Motor and Truck & Driver magazine have supported Truckfest for over 25 years. In Scotland our long standing partnership with Transport News magazine and in Ireland the leading Industry publication Export & Freight.
2013 will see the Truckfest South West relocate to The Three Counties Showground at Malvern adjacent to the M5 corridor. It provides a stunning backdrop for the re-titled ‘Truckfest South West & Wales’ event. Bob Limming from Truckfest says “We have thoroughly enjoyed the last 26 years at the Bath & West Showground. We felt it was time to increase the catchment area of the event and attract hauliers from throughout Wales, together with the traditional visitors from the Midlands and West Country.”
We recognise that budgets are tight and we have tried to do our bit to offer our customers huge savings by early bird bookings which you will find on the relevant pages of our website.
One thing is for sure the appetite for the Truckfest series of events continues to grow, with us seeing a record number of truck entries & visitors in 2012 and an event in easy reach of everyone within the UK.
