Established in 2014, the annual TruckX conference and exhibition has seen a large increase in popularity due to its relevance in the marketplace. The objective of TruckX is to host an informative and effective event for the trucking sector.
With industry research being presented, key notes, panel discussions and the latest products on display, TruckX is seen as South Africa’s premier trucking, fleet and logistics conference and exhibition.
Now in its fifth year, TruckX – South Africa’s all-encompassing, interactive event for the commercial transport industry – has moved things up a gear.
With a new headline sponsor, new industry partnerships and new events in parallel, TruckX 2018 is set to surpass the record-breaking support it received last year. The event takes place on July 11 and 12 at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, Midrand.
“In line with our vision of creating an industry event that gives visitors an interactive, hands-on, practical experience, a full-blown exhibition and outside events were added to TruckX last year,” explains John Thomson, the exhibition organiser. “To enable this, TruckX moved from Sandton Convention Centre to Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit. This really worked! TruckX had its highest number of visitors ever – over 2 100 people.” Thomson expects to increase attendance at this year’s show by 50%, since support from the industry for the new format has been extremely encouraging.
“There is a crying need for a conference and exhibition of this calibre,” says Japie Burger Transport Manager at ZZ2, a farming conglomerate operating with 104 trucks. Norman Pillay, managing director of Jesslyn Carriers, agrees: “The expo showcased how technology in the transport industry is changing rapidly and evolving with the times. TruckX is an excellent opportunity to get updates of events and to stay ahead of industry developments.”
Shell takes Headline Sponsorship:
Global energy group Shell has taken headline sponsorship for this year’s event. Commenting on this exciting news, Bongani Motloung – Sales Manager of Shell South Africa, says: “We believe that TruckX and FleetX are invaluable industry events. Shell South Africa is proud and delighted to have been afforded the opportunity to be one of the headline sponsors for 2018.”
