FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (Jan. 19, 2021) — NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry shares more information about what to expect at Work Truck Week 2021 (WTW21), a new online event for the commercial vehicle industry March 8–12, 2021. WTW21 will include exclusive product updates from work truck OEMs, industry-specific educational sessions, opportunities to connect with leading manufacturers and suppliers, and a media day. Participating companies will share the latest information on work trucks, equipment and other new products through their listings, which may include live demos, presentations, visuals and downloadable content, as well as contact information.

WTW21 is a reimagined way to connect the commercial vehicle community and to provide the product news, market trends and operational insights the industry has come to expect from The Work Truck Show® in a virtual environment. WTW21 will also include components of the popular Green Truck Summit in the form of Green Hour educational sessions and Advanced Chassis Update Sessions from battery electric vehicle manufacturers. WTW21 registration is open at

“Of course, we would much rather meet in person like we do every year at The Work Truck Show,” says Steve Carey, NTEA president & CEO. “But just because we can’t be together face-to-face doesn’t mean that the important work our industry does can be put on hold. The global pandemic has highlighted the vital role that the industry plays in keeping people safe, supplied and connected. NTEA is committed to continuing to fulfill our long-standing role of bringing together all the players in the commercial vehicle marketplace — OEMs, upfitters, body builders, leasing companies, fleets and others — to share information and work together to deliver the vehicles that are so critical to our economy and support every aspect of our daily lives. We just have to do it differently this year.”

WTW21 Media Day kicks off the event with exhibitor press conferences on Monday, March 8. Exhibitor demos, OEM Update Sessions, industry education and Green Hour sessions run Tuesday, March 9–Thursday, March 11. Advanced Chassis Update Sessions wrap up the week on Friday, March 12.

During OEM Update Sessions, leading work truck chassis manufacturers will share the latest chassis specifications and options, as well as future commercial vehicle plans. OEMs that produce battery electric chassis will discuss features and benefits of these vehicles from a technical and upfitting perspective during the Advanced Chassis Update Sessions on Friday.

The WTW21 educational lineup includes analysis of relevant economic and market trends with presentations from Steve Latin-Kasper, NTEA senior director of market data and research; Tim Campbell, managing director of Campbells Consultancy; and Andrej Divis, director, automotive, global heavy truck research for IHS Markit. Other sessions include Building Better Vehicle Spec’s, Implications of Vehicle Certification Labeling Requirements, and Work Trucks and Trailering – Are You Prepared? Green Hour sessions will highlight new technology and efforts to move to a zero-emission environment.

WTW21 creates access and opportunities to connect with contacts at companies across the work truck industry. When visiting exhibitor listings, registered attendees can chat and email with company representatives during the live event March 8–12 and on-demand through April 9.
