On March 15-17, The Work Truck Show will take place at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. This truck show is expected to draw over 500 exhibitors from across the nation. The Work Truck show is sponsored by the NTEA—the National Truck Equipment Association. The show’s purpose is to give fluid power professionals the opportunity to make connections with workers throughout the truck industry’s supply chain.
The event is great for people who are interested in expanding their knowledge base, educational sessions, along with the Green Truck Summit, actually begin March 14. The Green Truck Summit and the Work Truck Show will hold sessions; one of the key themes at the Green Truck Summit is related to alternative fuels and systems for cleaner transmissions.
Some other educational categories that will be discussed include Workforce development, risk mitigations, truck specifications and design, and OEM chassis updates, among others. These sessions are able to count towards educational criteria required by the NTEA’s Member Verification Program (MVP) for qualified companies.
Registration will begin at noon on March 13, and the exhibit hall doors open on March 15 at 10:00 a.m. Throughout the two days, attendees can interact with thousands of industry professionals, set up meetings with current suppliers or customers, find solutions to resolve technical issues, and talk with industry peers at special events and receptions.
Special events will include a Ride-and-Drive, which occurs on Wednesday and Thursday from noon until 4:30, where one can test-drive or ride in some of latest trucks to hit the market. Also on Thursday will be a special session taught by young people in the industry, aimed at discussing methods to recruit and keep millennials in the work truck industry.
