FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (January 18, 2017) — For a few days in March, the center of the country’s work truck industry is just a short drive away as The Work Truck Show 2017 returns to Indianapolis, Indiana.

This event gives anyone who buys, uses, manages or maintains commercial trucks and equipment the opportunity to see all the latest product developments on a 500,000-square-foot exhibit floor and learn from industry leaders in an extensive educational conference.

The Work Truck Show 2017, produced by NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry, will be held March 14–17, 2017 at the Indiana Convention Center. Educational sessions and the Green Truck Summit begin March 14, and the exhibit hall is open March 15–17.

At the Show, fleet managers can see the big picture as well as the small details of the industry’s evolving dynamics. The event features the latest vocational trucks, vans, vehicle components and equipment from more than 500 exhibiting companies. Equipment product engineers provide insight at exhibitor booths, and NTEA staff members are on-site to answer technical and regulatory questions.

To help attendees with the myriad of technical, regulatory, environmental and competitive challenges they face, the Show features an unparalleled educational curriculum. Educational sessions are available Tuesday through Thursday as part of The Work Truck Show, as well as the Green Truck Summit, the industry’s premier conference on clean energy innovations for commercial vehicles that’s held in conjunction with the Show.

Educational session presenters include representatives from truck manufacturers, trade associations, fleet managers, truck equipment distributors, equipment upfitters and truck dealers from around the world. Governmental representatives from the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy and California Air Resources Board are featured presenters as well.

Attendees can meet industry suppliers and experience the latest advanced technologies and alternative fuel applications by test-driving or riding in the newest commercial vehicles at The Work Truck Show Ride-and-Drive held during exhibit hall hours March 15 and 16. Participation is free and available on a first-come, first-served basis to all registered Work Truck Show 2017 attendees.

As a special treat this year, two of professional football’s most colorful analysts, Terry Bradshaw and Howie Long, will share the stage as keynote speakers as part of the President’s Breakfast on Thursday, March 16. A ticket is required.
