Work Truck Week is held at Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. It encompasses The Work Truck Show, Green Truck Summit, Ride & Drive, educational conference, and more.

Green Truck Summit is March 7, educational sessions run March 7–9, and the exhibit hall is open March 8–10. Registration opens in October. Work Truck Week is produced by NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry.

Like many Work Truck Week attendees, Robert Herjavec is an entrepreneur and successful business leader. Born in Eastern Europe, he escaped communism in the former Yugoslavia and emigrated to Canada. From delivering newspapers and waiting tables to launching a computer company from his basement, his drive to achieve has led him to create a better life for himself and his family. In 2003, he founded Herjavec Group, a global privately held cybersecurity firm.

Herjavec shares his expertise with other entrepreneurs weekly as a leading “Shark” on ABC’s show “Shark Tank.” On this long-running program, ambitious entrepreneurs pitch a panel of investors known as “Sharks” on investing in their companies. Herjavec also has written three books — “Driven,” “The Will to Win,” and “You Don’t Have to Be a Shark: Creating Your Own Success.”

“Robert Herjavec draws on his own rags-to-riches experience and substantial business success to inspire others to take risks, take control of their future and stay true to their visions,” David Scheitlin said, 2023 NTEA convention chair, and director of operations at Holman. “Work Truck Week attendees are sure to be both entertained and inspired by his stories and insights.”

Herjavec’s keynote will be a moderated question-and-answer conversation that’s sure to cover business trends, entrepreneurship, and maybe even some behind-the-scenes anecdotes from “Shark Tank.”

Tickets for Annual Meeting, sponsored by Ford Pro, will be available for purchase when registration opens in October.

Work Truck Week brings the commercial vehicle industry together annually to see new products, learn from each other, and network. The large exhibit hall includes offerings from all industry segments, including chassis, bodies, aerial devices, snow and ice control equipment, accessories, and components.

Green Truck Summit features intensive programs led by industry experts and fleet managers covering electric and other clean energy trends for commercial vehicles and operational insights for vocational truck fleets. A full event schedule will be released in the weeks ahead. For updates about Work Truck Week 2023, sign up here.
