Trucking, transport and trailer expo attracts an avalanche of exhibitors
Stephan Albertyn – Sales Executive at GRW

Mega-T, the premier trucks, trailers, and transport expo, is all set to host its eagerly awaited second event, and excitement is reaching a fever pitch as suppliers, service providers, and manufacturers flock to participate and showcase their products. Taking place on 5, 6 and 7 October 2023 at the Diamantvallei Landgoed showgrounds, 20km east of Pretoria and powered by The Road Freight Association (RFA), this show promises to be the ultimate hub of innovation, collaboration, and progress in the transport and trucking sector.

Trucks, trailer parts and service supplier JMR Group will use Mega-T to launch its new private label range, Road Diamond. Rynhardt Mostert, Chief Executive Officer of JMR Group, says the company is collaborating with some key suppliers to exhibit its latest cutting-edge products.

"Mega-T's continuous growth offers us an excellent opportunity to engage with new customers and foster stronger connections with our existing ones in a relaxed social setting. Road Diamond may be a newcomer to the market, but its foundation is solidly rooted in years of experience and expertise from a team of seasoned industry professionals," explains Mostert. "Designed specifically for South African roads and tailored to meet competitive price points, our slogan, 'Quality Priced Right,' encapsulates the essence of Road Diamond. The brand encompasses an extensive range of top-notch truck and trailer parts and accessories, all meticulously crafted for the discerning South African market."

Transport equipment manufacturer GRW has big plans for their participation at Mega-T. Its product range consists of fuel tankers, specialised liquid tankers, auger bulkers, pneumatic dry bulkers, refrigerated trailers and tautliner trailers. GRW will be hosting a daily lamb spitbraai and invites all show visitors to join in, gathering around the fire while enjoying a drink. Says Stephan Albertyn, Sales Executive for GRW: "The Expo provides an excellent opportunity for networking with other industry players and spending some valuable time with current and prospective customers."
