NTEA cancels product conference due to component shortage

NTEA and its board of directors announced Tuesday it has canceled the 2021 Truck Product Conference, citing the significant constraints the commercial vehicle technical community is currently facing. 

“Truck Product Conference is purposefully designed to connect chassis OEMs with equipment manufacturers and distributors for important technical insights to help the upfitting process,” says NTEA Board Chair Jon Sievert, president – work truck solutions, Douglas Dynamics Inc. “We feel that at this time this goal needs to be accomplished in a way that doesn’t take us away from our businesses given the current state of the industry.”

“As the association for the work truck industry, we know your pain points, challenges and needs,” says Steve Carey, NTEA president adnd CEO. “We’re here and we’re listening. And we fully believe this decision, in this moment in time, upholds our unwavering dedication to doing what’s right for you and your businesses.”

 All Truck Product Conference registration fees will be refunded (details are being communicated separately). For registrants who booked hotel rooms, reservations can be cancelled online or by calling 877-525-2427. Cancellations received 72 hours or more prior to arrival will receive a full refund, NTEA says.
