“This year, we’re emphasizing the many ways Work Truck Week increasingly gives you more: more equipment, more connections and more answers,” said Steve Carey, NTEA president and CEO. “From an exhibit hall packed with innovative new vehicles, equipment, and technology to an educational conference second to none, Work Truck Week is where the business of commercial vehicles gets done.”
The Work Truck Show exhibit hall showcases commercial vehicles, equipment, and other products – many revealed during Work Truck Week – from 500 companies. It’s open March 6–8. In addition to the main exhibit hall, the New Exhibitor Pavilion is a dedicated display space for showcasing first-time exhibitors and will be open March 6–7.
Additionally, attendees can experience commercial vehicles with the latest technology and propulsion systems during Work Truck Week’s Ride & Drive from March 6–7.
Along with exploring new technology and vehicles, attendees will also be able to attend Green Truck Summit, NTEA’s full-day advanced vehicle and fuel technology conference on March 5, which provides information and resources in support for commercial vehicle sustainability, productivity, and efficiency. The summit offers sessions led by industry experts, government representatives, fleets, and commercial vehicle and equipment manufacturers on clean energy trends and operational insights on the path to zero emissions.
The Work Truck Week 2024 educational program, which runs from March 5–7, includes a range of Special Sessions and shorter Breakout Sessions focused on ideas and strategies to help improve efficiency, implement best practices, and enhance operational growth. The commercial vehicle Chassis Update Sessions return with 12 commercial vehicle OEMs and three EV manufacturers sharing vehicle changes and upfitting solutions. In response to the industry’s ongoing challenges with employee recruitment and retention, Work Truck Week is also offering an expanded series of Workforce Development Sessions, which are free and available to all WTW24 registrants.
Finally, in addition to the many informal opportunities to connect with colleagues throughout Work Truck Week, there also are several official events on the agenda, such as the Opening Reception at Lucas Oil Stadium on March 5. Generation Next, an industry professional development group, will also host a Leadership Workshop & Networking Reception on March 6. On March 7, Jerome “The Bus” Bettis and Emmitt Smith, two of the National Football League’s greatest running backs, will team up as keynote speakers at NTEA Annual Meeting, which includes breakfast and updates on NTEA resources and initiatives.
