With only four weeks until the Australian Bus + Coach Show at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, there is a positive vibe about all industry players coming together for the free two day exhibition.

Following a tradition started many years ago at the Warwick Farm Bus Show, culminating in 2009 show at Rosehill Gardens, there is a lot of history behind this ‘feel good event’ for the industry, according to BusNSW Executive Director Darryl Mellish.

"There has been a long tradition of bus and coach operators, old and new, coming to the Sydney Show to enjoy friendships and the passion that has made the industry a great success," he says.

"Whilst the industry continues to evolve and adapt to change, the camaraderie between operators, suppliers and other stakeholders will always be present."

This year’s show will feature a number of free technology workshops that are open to all attendees.

There will be a choice of two workshops every thirty minutes between 2pm and 4pm on both Wednesday October 5 and Thursday October 6.

Mellish says the technology workshops will give attendees an opportunity to get ‘up close and personal’ with leading suppliers to learn about using new technology to improve performance and efficiency.

"Participants can get involved with practical demonstrations and will have a chance to question the expert presenters," he says.

The technology workshops include:

§ Introducing the New Volvo B11R Chassis – A Platform for Productivity - Presented by Volvo Bus Australia

§ Volgren Maintenance - Friendly Panel and Component Replacement - Presented by Volgren

§ Online Customer Support Solutions & Using AdBlue - Presented by Mercedes-Benz

§ The future of Bus Driveline Technology - Presented by ZF Services Australia

§ Custom e-bus Hybrid Technology - Presented by Custom

§ Total Fleet Management – How to Lower Your Operating Costs - Presented by Scania

§ Diagnose of Multiplex Systems - Presented by Thoreb

§ Air-conditioning Maintenance Tips and New Technology - Presented by Thermo King Transit

For technology workshop times and locations, attendees should refer to the official show program.

Bus and Coach operators are encouraged to bring their families, as the show will include a jumping castle for children, and vintage double decker rides provided by the Sydney Bus Museum.

"With exhibition booths, vehicle displays, and food options spread across a number of areas, there will be a real village atmosphere to be enjoyed by all," Mellish says.

All important visitor, exhibitor and conference information is available on the official Australian Bus and Coach Show 2011 website

"The show website provides up to date exhibitor lists, maps, parking, travel and accommodation information for attendees," says Mellish.
