EPA to participate at upcoming UTA Convention

Updated Aug 10, 2017

The United States’ Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced it will have a booth during the trade show at this year’s Used Truck Association (UTA) Annual Convention and Expo, scheduled for November in Las Vegas.

The EPA will have a booth at the expo to discuss the dangers of emission tampering within the used truck markets.

“That tampering isn’t visible through inspection of a truck, but any company that sells a truck that’s been tampered with in this way is subject to hefty fines,” says R.C. Euler with the UTA, who arranged for the EPA’s appearance.

This is not the first time the UTA has added emissions tampering at its annual event. Successful Dealer Editor Lucas Deal also spoke on the topic at the 2014 event.

UTA has high hopes for the EPA’s participation and the trade show as a whole. Last year’s Vendor Expo in Savannah, Ga., featured a record 90 exhibitors, and UTA says this year’s Vendor Expo is likely to break that record with a number of new exhibitors participating for the first time.
