NTEA, organizers of The Work Truck Show 2019, announced this week a record 14,256 industry professionals from 28 countries this year’s Work Truck Week, which continues to thrive and grow in an evolving commercial truck industry.
NTEA says this year’s highlights included vehicle introductions, equipment demonstrations, expanded educational opportunities, and the industry’s broadest display of vocational trucks and equipment.
Having maxed out its traditional display space within Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, The Work Truck Show 2019 expanded to include a New Exhibitor Pavilion across the hall from the exhibit floor, as well as a section of the Hoosier Hallway dedicated to manufacturing technology displays and demonstrations. To make room for the inaugural Manufacturer and Distributor Innovation Conference, NTEA moved the popular Green Truck Summit and Fleet Technical Congress to the connected JW Marriott.
This year’s event was held last week, March 5-8. North America’s largest work truck event will return to the Indiana Convention Center for its 20th anniversary from March 3-6, 2020.
“NTEA staff, board of directors and partners work hard all year to make The Work Truck Show as smooth and productive as possible,” says Steve Carey, NTEA president and CEO. “This is a diverse industry, and our stakeholders have many different needs, from improving operational efficiency to knowing how to specify the right truck for the job or figuring out which powertrain is most appropriate for a specific application.
“The growth and success of the show rests on helping our exhibitors and attendees meet those needs, through education, networking and the opportunity to share equipment innovations. We have a lot of positive momentum going into our 20th anniversary event next year.”
