How to get the most out of the Melbourne Truck Show

With the International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show (ITTES) 2016 just over a week away, Show Organisers have reminded visitors to plan ahead to get the most of the experience.

With more than 30,000 people expected through the gates of the Melbourne Showgrounds, Show Director, Simon Coburn, has advised attendees to buy tickets and parking in advance.

“The Melbourne Truck Show is a large-scale exhibition, especially with the inclusion of its sister events, Roads & Civil Works and Waste Management In Action,” Coburn said.

“Visitors are advised to pre-purchase Show tickets and pre-register for parking, so all that is left to do is explore the Showgrounds and take in the latest innovations from Australia’s transport, roads and civil works and waste industries.”

Tickets are just $15 for a one-day pass, $25 for two days and $35 for full three-day admission, which includes the Saturday public access day. All visitors over the age of 18 must pre-register online or at the Show before entering the venue.

Parking is $10 a day, and must be pre-registered online, as the venue management will not allow any money to be collected on site. Parking registration can be made conveniently while purchasing tickets.

“We would encourage those travelling by car to pre-book their parking space, especially for Saturday the 7th, as there will also be events on at Flemington racecourse,” added Coburn.

Tickets and car park bookings can be made here.

Alternatively, the Showgrounds can also be accessed easily by public transport, on Tram Route 57.

You can plan your journey by train, bus or tram through the PTV website.

The Show is restricted to “trade” only on Thursday 5 and Friday 6 May between 10.00am and 5.30pm. Trade admission is applicable to workers and their families within the waste, commercial road transport, roads, civil works and associated sectors.

The general public are invited to explore the show on Saturday 7 May from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
