Work Truck Week 2023 preview

With extended exhibit hours and a new pavilion, more than 500 companies will be at Work Truck Week in March.

Work Truck Week takes place 7-10 March 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 7 March. Educational sessions run 7-9 March, and the exhibit hall is open 8-10 March.

Work Truck Show exhibits cover all commercial vehicle industry segments. The exhibit hall is open 9.30am-5pm on Wednesday, 8 March, and Thursday, 9 March 9. That’s 30 minutes earlier than prior years. Friday’s hours remain 9am–noon.

“As Work Truck Week has grown over the last two decades, attendees have asked for more time in the exhibit hall,” said NTEA President and CEO, Steve Carey.

“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 8-9 March, 8.30am-4pm.

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. Exclusively at Work Truck Week 2023, 12 leading chassis OEMs provide updates on vehicle changes and upfitting solutions. 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. Held at the JW Marriott Indianapolis adjacent to the convention centre, it features intensive sessions on clean energy trends and operational insights for vocational fleets. Jennifer Rumsey, President and CEO of global power solutions technology company, Cummins, is the keynote speaker.
