Get ready… the Work Truck Show is coming back in March! The show, put on by the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA), is set for March, in Indianapolis. And, it already has a full schedule planned.
This is North America’s largest assembly of vocational trucks and equipment. In 2018, a record-breaking 13,570 industry professionals attended the show. Now, the NTEA plans to expand their available educational opportunities!
As Steve Carey, NTEA president and CEO, stated: “Nowhere else can attendees compare vocational truck products from hundreds of exhibiting companies, network with their peers and learn about the industry’s latest advances and trends all in one place.” Essentially, it is the best place for commercial truck owners to get up to date on the latest changes in the industry. And this year? The NTEA planned plenty of new educational events for just this purpose.
Events to Look Out For
For one, there is the new Manufacturer and Distributor Innovation Conference. The NTEA designed the conference to help commercial truck manufacturers, distributors, upfitters, and body builders of all sizes. It’ll teach how to improve manufacturing efficiency, as well as business results. They’ll do this using the latest techniques and technology.
As Doyle Sumrall, NTEA’s managing director, states: “Attendees will come away from this event with resources and ideas they can put into practice to accelerate their business success.” Stan Stanford, the general manger of Parker Hannifin, is set to deliver the keynote address.
In addition, the NTEA is offering registrants the option to attend the Green Truck Summit and Fleet Technical Congress. These events run at the same time, but registrants can switch back and forth between them based on the topics they are interested in. This also allows attendees to build their schedules around the topics that are pertinent to them and their businesses.
Additionally, the Green Truck Summit focuses on the technology advances in alternative fuels and the move toward zero-emissions work trucks. Then, the Fleet Technical Congress focuses on the main issues impacting the vocational fleet community.
So, check out the whole list of events and sessions here! It is clear that the Work Truck Show is going to have some great information for everyone in the trucking industry. Which events are you excited about?
