Registration and housing are now open for Work Truck Week 2022, North America’s largest work truck event, returning to Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
Work Truck Week includes Work Truck Show exhibits, extensive education and training, Green Truck Summit, a Ride & Drive, and multiple networking activities. Building on the success of the 2021 virtual event, Work Truck Week 2022 includes new online features such as on-demand exhibitor listings, product information and post-event education session materials for registered Conference Package attendees.
Green Truck Summit is March 8, and education sessions run March 8–10. The exhibit hall is open March 9–11. A detailed event schedule, registration, and hotel information are available.
“We are bringing together everything our attendees know and value about Work Truck Week and adding the most popular elements from the virtual event we held in 2021,” says Steve Carey, NTEA president & CEO. “With tools like the WTW22 planner, attendees can research new products, contact exhibitors and plan their time before the in-person event begins. And if they don’t have time to make it to every education session during Work Truck Week, those who register for a Conference Package can access many concurrent session materials after the event to continue learning.”
Attendees can choose from dozens of education and training sessions on topics including chassis OEM updates, market trends, vehicle design and specification, risk mitigation, vehicle regulations, and more. Three all-day workshops offer in-depth training: Develop Process Stability with Lean Fundamentals, Spec’ing for Success and perennial favorite Fleet Management 101. Space at each session is limited and registration is required. Indiana LTAP and Purdue Road School return with courses designed for area transportation providers, fleet managers and professional engineers.
Green Truck Summit brings together government, educators, fleets and innovators to provide insights on the work truck industry’s path to zero emissions. Held at the JW Marriott Indianapolis adjacent to the convention center, it includes sessions on hydrogen and fuel cells in work trucks, government programs and data initiatives, global clean technology trends, electric vehicle grants and programs, and electric vehicle maintenance best practices. It concludes with a reception.
Other networking events include Opening Reception at Lucas Oil Stadium, Generation Next Leadership Workshop & Networking Reception, and NTEA Annual Meeting with keynote speaker Mike Rowe, executive producer, host and best-selling author.
The Work Truck Show will fill all of the exhibit halls within the entire Indiana Convention Center and showcase the latest products from nearly 500 companies covering all commercial vehicle industry segments, including commercial chassis, truck bodies, aerial devices, snow and ice control equipment, commercial vehicle accessories and components, alternative fuel technology, and more.
