Work Truck Show expands educational slate, covering all aspects of the work truck industry

Fleet management: The Work Truck Show® 2016 will feature a unified educational schedule allowing Work Truck Show and Green Truck Summit attendees to learn about a wider range of topics affecting their organizations. By selecting an educational package for either event, registrants can attend any Work Truck Show- or Green Truck Summit-related concurrent session.

The Work Truck Show is North America’s largest work truck event. Produced annually by NTEA ­ The Association for the Work Truck Industry, the 2016 Show will be held March 1­4 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Educational sessions and the Green Truck Summit begin March 1, and exhibits open March 2.

“Combining the Green Truck Summit and The Work Truck Show concurrent educational schedules enables us to provide a curriculum that covers all aspects of the evolving work truck industry,” says Steve Carey, NTEA executive director. “This all-encompassing educational approach -- with topics ranging from alternative fuels and advanced technology to vehicle engineering and workplace efficiency -- will make The Work Truck Show 2016 truly unique. No other event can provide its attendees with a broader understanding of current industry trends.”

Using the new combined educational lineup, fleet managers can attend a course about the advantages of propane autogas on the same day as an OEM chassis update session, while truck equipment upfitters can follow up a session about lean business practices with one about upcoming government fuel efficiency regulations. Other educational highlights include sessions about how to analyze drive and duty cycles for better fleet efficiency, and the emergence of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software.

“Work Truck Show and Green Truck Summit attendees can now better select sessions that address their individual needs for a more productive experience,” says Carey.

There are nearly twice as many concurrent sessions available to educational package registrants in 2016 than there were in 2015. These are in addition to the Green Truck Summit general sessions on March 1 and Special Sessions held throughout the week, which require separate registration.

The Work Truck Show, recently named one of the top 100 trade shows in the U.S., brings together more than 11,000 truck fleet managers, dealers and equipment distributors annually. In addition to educational sessions, it features the newest vocational trucks, vans, vehicle components and equipment on a trade show floor covering more than 500,000 square feet.
