The 2022 TMC Trailers Trucking Industry show has been postponed, organisers New Zealand Trucking Association have announced. The show, which was scheduled for 11 and 12 March 2022, will now take place later in the year on 25 and 26 November.

The organisers say they have been watching the COVID-19 situation closely and feel that running a large-scale show is a high risk due to the uncertain environment at present.

"Although vaccination rates may be up by then and events permitted, we feel industry and the public might still have reservations about large crowds, booking travel, and making commitments, when, as we have seen, the situation can change in a flash.

This show attracts tens of thousands of visitors from around New Zealand and Australia, which brings in a significant amount of money into the city of Christchurch."

All the competitions that were to run at the show will now run in November.

New dates for the TR Group Driving Championship heats in Auckland will be announced soon.

"It’s been a very difficult decision and a lot of planning from our team to secure the new date," says Dave Boyce, NZTA CEO.

"We have received huge support from the sponsors and exhibitors who had some concerns already due to the congested supply chain that goods/equipment would arrive in time for the show. With so many people travelling to Christchurch and from overseas to attend the show, hopefully, all travel is restored by then."
