Work Truck Week is More Than a Trade Show™, providing commercial vehicle industry professionals with unmatched opportunities to explore the latest trucks, equipment and trends; learn new ideas and solutions that can impact their operations; and connect with the people and companies they need to thrive. It encompasses The Work Truck Show®, Green Truck Summit, NTEA Annual Meeting, Work Truck Week Ride & Drive, educational sessions, and more.
“This year, we’re emphasizing the many ways Work Truck Week increasingly gives you more: more equipment, more connections and more answers,” says Steve Carey, NTEA president & CEO. “From an exhibit hall packed with innovative new vehicles, equipment and technology to an educational conference second to none, Work Truck Week is where the business of commercial vehicles gets done.”
More Vehicles and Equipment
The massive Work Truck Show exhibit hall showcases commercial vehicles, equipment and other products—many revealed during Work Truck Week—from 500 companies. It’s open March 6–8. In addition to the main exhibit hall, New Exhibitor Pavilion is a dedicated display space for showcasing first-time exhibitors March 6–7.
Attendees can experience commercial vehicles with the latest advanced technology and propulsion systems during Work Truck Week Ride & Drive March 6–7.
