Work Truck Show 2009 is nearly sold out, and many long-time exhibitors
have reserved much larger booths than in the past, according to the
National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA), which produces the annual
commercial truck and equipment event.
The Work Truck Show 2009 is North America’s largest work truck
event. The Work Truck Show brings together the latest full-size work
trucks and equipment, along with individual vehicle components offered
by hundreds of suppliers. The event also features industry-specific
technical and business-management training sessions. The event will be
held in conjunction with the 45th Annual NTEA Convention, March 4-6,
2009, at the McCormick Place West Building in Chicago. The convention
runs March 3-6.
“Exhibitors are excited about our Chicago location and are buoyed
by the success they had at the Work Truck Show 2008,” said Andrew
Outcalt, NTEA convention chairman and president of Meyer Products LLC
and Swenson Spreader LLC (Cleveland, Ohio). “As a result, many have
invested in more booth space and have reserved their space earlier, to
ensure that they are not left out. This is good news for show
attendees, who will benefit from exploring the extensive array of new
and innovative products on display and talking one-on-one with
engineers and other technical personnel staffing the exhibits.”
Booth space at the show is more than 95 percent sold. Companies
that want to reach vocational, municipal and private truck fleet
managers, truck buyers, dealers and distributors from the Class 18
market are encouraged to call the NTEA to reserve booth space soon.
