FARMINGTON HILLS, MI (April 12, 2012) — On the heels of two back-to-back record-breaking events in 2011 and 2012, NTEA has committed to holding The Work Truck Show® at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN, through 2016.
“Indianapolis has been a fabulous venue for The Work Truck Show,” says Steve Carey, NTEA executive director. “We have broken records every year we’ve held the show there. Based on our excellent experiences over the last two years and positive feedback from members, exhibitors and attendees, the NTEA Board of Trustees has committed to hold the event at the Indiana Convention Center at least through 2016.”
The Work Truck Show is North America’s largest work truck event. Produced annually by NTEA, the association for the work truck industry, it encompasses a show floor of more than 500,000 square feet, more than 60 educational and technical training sessions, the Green Truck Summit and the Annual NTEA Convention. The Work Truck Show 2012 was held at the Indiana Convention Center in March. It was the biggest work truck event in history, with 563 exhibitors and more than 10,400 attendees.
The Work Truck Show has rotated among cities since its debut in 2000. This was the first year the show was held in the same city back to back. The Show previously took place in Indianapolis in 2005 and 2007. It broke earlier attendance records both of those years, as well.
The Work Truck Show 2013 will be held March 6-8, 2013, with educational programming, including the Green Truck Summit, starting March 5. Online registration opens at NTEA.com in October.
The Work Truck Show 2014 runs March 4-7. The Work Truck Show 2015 runs March 3-6. The Work Truck Show 2016 takes place March 1-4.
