We are delighted to announce that The Heavies 2018 will be part of a new three-day specialist heavy transport festival; The Heavies & HeavyTorque LIVE!

This will be the UK’s only dedicated events for the heavy and specialist transport sector bringing every aspect of this diverse and fascinating industry together in one place. Featuring heavy truck, specialist trailer and equipment manufacturers along with service providers and specialist heavy transport companies of all sizes. It will provide a unique opportunity for the industry to showcase what it does best, with highly skilled crews using modern sophisticated equipment to overcome truly challenging situations. It also allows company owners, managers and the entire workforce to meet and celebrate everything that makes the heavy transport industry so special. In addition, it’s a chance for equipment manufacturers, dealers, trade associations and transport enthusiasts to gather and exchange views, opinions and ideas.

HeavyTorque LIVE! will be an all-action event, featuring fully-loaded heavy haulage and abnormal load outfits, allowing drivers and crews the opportunity to demonstrate the sophisticated equipment that they use to load, lift, transport and install heavy and oversize cargoes on a daily basis. This will include loading/unloading demonstrations, reconfiguring specialist trailers to suit different applications, the use of specialist truck-mounted cranes and other heavy-lift equipment, which will demonstrate the technical complexity and outstanding capabilities of modern heavy transport equipment.

HeavyTorque LIVE! Festival Plan

HeavyTorque LIVE! will take place on Saturday/Sunday, 1-2 September 2018 at the Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire, with ample space for the biggest vehicle and trailer combinations. It’s situated close to the A1/A46. The action-packed weekend will kick-off with The Heavies awards dinner and presentation on the evening of Friday 31 August, in the purpose-built indoor facilities on site – a black tie gala event to celebrate the achievements of the abnormal load industry over the previous 18 months.

The Saturday and Sunday will be given over to the show itself: two days of live indoor and outdoor displays, with exhibitions for operators, drivers, workshop staff, equipment manufacturers and dealers, along with transport enthusiasts. On the Saturday evening there will be an informal social event where visitors and exhibitors can relax and share their passion for all things heavy.
