Melbourne ITTES Show & Shine
The Melbourne International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show (ITTES) keeps on bringing fresh ideas to the transport industry and has done so since its inception. This year the ITTES added both an extra day to the event, extending the Show to four days, and a very popular Show & Shine held on the weekend.
The extra day on the weekend was perfect to allow working truckies, suppliers and transport workers the opportunity to come to the ITTES. The ITTES Show & Shine was hosted by Australian Custom Trucks and Bling’d Up Trucks magazines on Saturday the 5th and Sunday 6th of April and featured trucks coming from as far as central Queensland as well as a great selection of Melbourne based trucks. Show & Shine organiser Chris Smith said the event was a very big positive for the ITTES as it displayed a wide array of both customised working trucks as well as some magnificent project trucks that genuinely got the crowds excited.
“I would like to give a massive thanks to all the entrants that brought their trucks to the Inaugural ITTES Show & Shine,” Chris said.
“I would also like to thank our generous sponsors and all the people that came by to admire all the trucks in the Show & Shine.”
The sponsors put in close to $5000 worth of cash and prizes to make the event possible, with a first prize of an aluminum 5th wheel valued at over $3000 sponsored by SAF Holland for ‘Truck of the Show’.
