FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (March 17, 2021) — Thousands of work truck industry professionals gathered last week, as they do every year, at North America’s largest work truck event to check out the latest commercial vehicles, equipment and technology, and learn how to improve their operations. The difference this year was that Work Truck Week 2021 was virtual, which means that although the week is over, the opportunity to explore new products from 300+ companies, watch more than 30 sessions and attend over 100 exhibitor demos remains available through April 9.
WTW21, presented by NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry, is a reimagined way to connect the commercial vehicle community and provide the product news, market trends and operational insights the industry has come to expect from The Work Truck Show® in a virtual environment. It ran online March 8–12 and is available on demand through April 9 (registration required).
Steve Carey, NTEA president & CEO, says the Association has been pleased with event participation, and credits the resilience of the industry with WTW21’s success.
“When things go wrong in the world, the work truck industry rushes to the rescue, working together to build the vehicles and equipment that make it possible to deliver medicine and supplies, restore power, clear roads and rebuild stronger,” he says. “It’s that relentless focus on getting the job done that we saw in effect with WTW21. Even when we can’t be together in person, we know that the work must continue, so we put our heads down and make it happen.”
Many companies introduced new products, technology and services during WTW21 through Media Day press conferences, exhibitor demos, OEM Update Sessions and Advanced Chassis Update Sessions. Check out some of the week’s headlines, including news from Bollinger Motors, Cummins Inc, Ford Commercial Vehicles, General Motors Fleet, Hino Trucks, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Kenworth Truck Company, Mack Trucks and XL Fleet on WTW21 in the News.
