Comment: TMC Trailers Trucking Industry Show 2025

The Canterbury Agriculture Park is gearing up for the return of the premier trucking event, TMC Trailers Trucking Industry Show, scheduled for 8 March 2025

The biannual event promises to deliver an experience for trucking enthusiasts, industry leaders, and families alike.

A cornerstone event in the trucking calendar, the TMC Trailers Trucking Industry Show celebrates the professionalism of drivers while bridging connections with the wider public. The event offers the opportunity for companies to display innovation, show what’s new, and connect with their customers.


Since its inception in 2014, the show has grown each time to become a must-attend event. Despite the challenges posed by the current economic climate, the importance of staying connected remains paramount. The TMC Trailers Trucking Industry Show is a vital industry initiative, encouraging generations to aspire to work in the ever-evolving world of trucking.

Exciting improvements have been made to the 2025 event, including a revamped floor plan designed to enhance better traffic flow. Additionally, families can look forward to an expanded free kids’ zone, brimming with entertainment and educational activities for all ages.

Among the highlights of the show are the inspiring Show and Shine trucks, standing proud as the stars of the event. The prestigious awards ceremony, scheduled for 4pm, will honour excellence in various categories, followed by a networking evening for attendees to connect and unwind.

Adding to the excitement, TR Group is introducing a Trucking Relay competition — this was first held in 2018 and was a huge hit for spectators. A grandstand will be set up for friends and colleagues to cheer on their teams. Drivers can enter after forming a team of three and compete for incredible prizes on the day. Stay tuned for more details.


Enthusiasts of classic trucks will be delighted by the expanded Classic Truck area, showcasing beautifully restored vehicles that pay homage to the industry’s rich heritage and craftsmanship.

"The TMC Trailers Trucking Industry Show has long been referred to as the trucking industry’s premier event in the trucking calendar, and its return in 2025 is eagerly anticipated," says Carol McGeady, show manager and COO of the NZ Trucking Association.

"From cutting-edge technologies to the latest fleet innovations, attendees can expect a comprehensive showcase of everything the trucking industry has to offer."
