Having crossed the Irish Sea for the first time in 2012, Truckfest Ireland is set to make a return to the shores of Northern Ireland between 17th & 18th August 2013. With Media Partners Export and Freight and associate sponsors RSA Insurance together with P&O Ferries, everything is set for a fantastic weekend not just for the Road Haulage Industry but the whole family.
The event has built its reputation on providing a shop window for the industry, with manufacturers and distributors showing the latest innovations, truck operators and drivers showing off stunning everyday working trucks and vintage, classic and state of the art trucks on display.
Last year saw the record number of vintage and classic entries at any of the Truckfest events throughout its 30 year history when Ulster Vintage Commercial Vehicle Club provided that all important link to the past; 2013 will see them back with their fantastic display.
Having grown in popularity as a great day out for all the family, with cartoon characters, celebrity meet and greets with Lisa Kelly and Alex Debogorski from the highly popular TV series Ice Road Truckers and top TV drama stars from the Fall Bronagh Waugh and Emmet Scanlan, Truckfest Ireland is certainly the perfect day out for families or Truck Enthusiasts alike. There will also be non-stop action in the main arena to keep the masses entertained with high-octane car crushing action by BIGFOOT and Slingshot, the most famous monster trucks of them all and air defying FMX stunt bike displays by Broke FMX and much more.
Associate Sponsors P&O Ferries are delighted to be on-board for a second year, Arthur Murphy, Business-to-Business Sales Manager P&O Ferries Irish Sea, said: “We are looking forward to being associate sponsors of Truckfest Ireland and are very excited to welcome back this family show to Northern Ireland for the second time. We would encourage everyone to join in the fun and travel to Balmoral Park for what will be a great weekend. Visit our stand for special offers and the chance to win ferry crossings to Britain.”
2013 will also see Truckfest move to its permanent home at the newly created Balmoral Park, Lisburn with adequate on-site parking, purpose built arenas and a great proximity to the motorway.
