NTEA Convention, Expo Coming in 2001

T3 2001 - The Commercial Truck, Trailer, and Technology Expo runs March 1-3, 2001, in conjunction with the 37th annual National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Convention, which runs Feb 28-March 3, 2001, at the Baltimore (MD) Convention Center.

At T3 2001, participants will talk one-on-one with top chassis manufacturers, attend educational sessions, and see commercial vehicles and equipment for Classes 1 through 8 all in one location. Everything they need to register and prepare for the show is available at www.worktrucks.com, the NTEA's new web site.

Three professional speakers will use humor, wit, and experience in their messages about succeeding in business. Humorist and Pulitzer prizewinner Dave Barry delivers the keynote address during the President's Breakfast and NTEA annual meeting March 1 from 7:30 am to 9 am. Barry, a columnist for the Miami Herald, has a syndicated column in newspapers across the United States. He has written a number of books, two of which were the basis for the show "Dave's World," which aired on CBS-TV for two years.

From 10 am to 11:45 am March 2, Sam Geist helps participants answer the question "Why Should Someone Do Business with You?" Geist, former owner-operator of a national sporting goods chain and current president of a marketing and consulting firm, also leads a breakout session earlier that morning. From 8:30 am to 9:45 am he conducts a concurrent session entitled, "If I Hear `Customer Service' One More Time."

Telling participants about "The Power to Be the Best" from 9 am to 10:45 am March 3 is Warren Greshes. President of Speaking of Success, he shares the formula for success he has found as a salesperson and self-employed speaker.
