Don’t miss the inaugural Futuroad expo
Since the termination of the former Johannesburg Truck and Bus Show, local commercial vehicle operators and enthusiasts have been left wanting for such a trade show. The first edition of Futuroad Johannesburg aims to remedy this.
Taking place at the Johannesburg Expo Centre, Nasrec, from Wednesday 27 to Saturday 30 September, Futuroad is positioned to develop into the largest commercial-vehicle business-to-business trade show and networking platform on the African continent.
“It is the one event that any truck and bus operator and fleet owner cannot afford to miss,” says Joshua Low, group exhibitions director, Messe Frankfurt South Africa.
Futuroad has a special focus on road transport, trucks, buses and trailers and invites truck and fleet owners, managers and bus operators to visit the show. Here they can experience the latest local and international developments, innovations, products and service offerings relating to trucks.
Providers of truck parts, components, products, and services, who serve the truck and fleet sector, will be in attendance.
“Road transport is a vital part of the economic system in sub-Saharan Africa and the ongoing drive towards the provision of more cost-effective solutions for the trucking industry is reflected in the number and quality of exhibitors at Futuroad,” Low adds.
“Visitors can explore integrated commercial transport products and services designed to maximise customer satisfaction by lowering total cost of ownership, optimising vehicle uptime and delivering absolute cost predictability to clients,” he says.
In view of October being earmarked as National Transport month, Futuroad will also see a focus on transport through dedicated commercial sector conferences by both the Southern African Bus Operators Association and the Road Freight Association.
Pre-registration to the show – via the Futuroad website – will ensure free, seamless and quick access to the event.
Furthermore, Futuroad is co-located with Automechanika, Reifen, Scalex and the Forecourt event – and registration to Futuroad includes access to all co-located events, under one roof.
