Registration and housing open for North America’s largest work truck event

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (Oct. 19, 2022) — Attendees will have more time to check out the latest commercial vehicles, equipment and technology from 500 companies at Work Truck Week® 2023 thanks to extended Work Truck Show exhibit hours. The popular New Exhibitor Pavilion also returns with an earlier start. Registration for North America’s largest work truck event is now open at worktruckweek.com.

Work Truck Week takes place March 7–10, 2023, 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. NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry produces Work Truck Week.

Work Truck Show exhibits cover all commercial vehicle industry segments. The exhibit hall is open 9:30 a.m.–5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 8, and Thursday, March 9. That’s 30 minutes earlier than prior years. Friday’s hours remain 9 a.m.–noon.

“As Work Truck Week has grown over the last two decades, attendees have asked for more time in the exhibit hall,” says Steve Carey, NTEA president & CEO. “They use this time not just to see the latest products, but also to talk with engineering and technical experts in exhibitor booths, watch equipment demos and experience some of the latest technology in Ride & Drive. Opening earlier on Wednesday and Thursday helps them accomplish their goals.”

New Exhibitor Pavilion features 25 first-time exhibitors in a dedicated display space beyond the main exhibit hall March 8–9, 8:30 a.m.–4 p.m.

Learning and networking opportunities
The 2023 educational program includes a variety of targeted sessions where industry experts and thought leaders share strategies to help improve efficiency, implement best practices and grow operations. Concurrent sessions address market data and industry trends, vehicle engineering and compliance, government relations, advanced fuels and vehicle technology, workforce development and more. Registered Conference Package attendees also can access on-demand materials from many of the concurrent sessions after the event concludes.

In-depth special sessions offer training on fleet management and increasing truck dealers’ commercial vehicle sales.

Green Truck Summit, NTEA’s full-day advanced fuels and vehicle technology conference, provides insights and resources to support the work truck industry’s drive toward greater sustainability, productivity and efficiency.
