The National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) announces a new award: The Work Truck Show Green Award. A winner will be selected at The Work Truck Show 2009, set for March 4-6 at the McCormick Place West Building in Chicago IL, in conjunction with the 45th annual NTEA Convention, which runs March 3-6.
The Work Truck Show Green Award is the latest enhancement to the NTEA's focus on hybrid and alternative fuel vocational trucks and equipment at The Work Truck Show 2009 and 45th Annual NTEA Convention. Additional “green” activities at the event include the full-day Green Truck Summit on March 3; a Green Truck Ride-and-Drive open to all attendees March 4-5; a Green Truck Pavilion on the show floor dedicated to commercially viable hybrid and alternative fuel trucks, components, and equipment; and three concurrent education sessions.
To qualify for The Work Truck Show Green Award, the product or technology must be new (introduced within the 12 months preceding the show), manufactured or distributed by a show exhibitor, and displayed in that company's booth at the Work Truck Show 2009. The product or technology must improve fuel utilization for work trucks. There is no entry fee. A winner will be selected by popular vote of trade media attending the show.
