Carl Webb, vice president and general manager of medium duty product, International Trucks, speaks to attendees.
The Work Truck Show 2015, held March 4 to 6, attracted more than 10,000 attendees to the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Ind. The event also featured the 51st Annual National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Convention in conjunction with the trade show. Spread out over 500,000-sq. ft. of exhibit hall space, the trade show featured the newest vocational trucks, vans and equipment. To provide a comprehensive overview of new products available in the rapidly changing industry, the 2015 show included a New Exhibitor Showcase and New Product Spotlight. These two programs highlighted new products and exhibitors in pre-show coverage and with special signage on-site. Also, during the show, 15 of the world’s leading vocational chassis manufacturers presented Chassis Update sessions on what’s new and upcoming with its product lines.
The NTEA added “Fleet Management 101: Fundamentals of Truck Fleet Management” to The Work Truck Show’s slate of educational sessions this year. The fundamentals program highlights outsourcing and supplier management, analytics, benchmarking, vehicle cost and replacement, and safety. Senior representatives from Gaithersburg, Md.-based Mercury Associates, a fleet management-consulting firm, led the fundamentals session.
In addition, the Green Truck Summit, an alternative fuel and technology conference, was held. Clean vehicle technology trends, shared implementation insights, funding opportunities for green initiatives and changes in upcoming fuel efficiency regulations were addressed.
