Join Us for 2023 Work Truck Week
Work Truck Week will be held at Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis in March. It encompasses Green Truck Summit, The Work Truck Show, Ride & Drive, and more.
Green Truck Summit takes place at JW Marriott Indianapolis, adjacent to Indiana Convention Center, on March 7.
Work Truck Week educational sessions run March 7–9 and Work Truck Show exhibits are open March 8–10. Ride & Drive, which lets attendees experience commercial vehicles featuring the latest advanced fuels and technologies, is available March 8–9.
For more than 20 years, leading work truck chassis manufacturers have shared their latest chassis specifications and designs, reviewed body and equipment installation options and provided insight into future commercial vehicle plans during Work Truck Week OEM update sessions.
This information is invaluable to upfitters and body builders looking to optimize their body and equipment designs and installation plans. As new EV chassis manufacturers have come online, fleet and commercial customers are looking for upfitters who can provide solutions using the new platforms.
“Our update sessions offer truck and body equipment manufacturers, installers and upfitters the opportunity to get the facts they need to support their end-user customers and manage their businesses,” explains Kevin Koester, NTEA managing director. “There are a lot of questions and concerns about how to upfit electric vehicles, and as North America’s premier commercial vehicle event, Work Truck Week is an ideal venue to facilitate these conversations.”
