The Work Truck Show 2020 is set to kick off next week in Indianapolis, Indiana, and will feature several new programs, as well as opportunities to check out the latest vocational vehicles and equipment from over 500 exhibitors. The show runs March 3–6 at Indiana Convention Center.
Educational sessions, Green Truck Summit and Manufacturer and the Distributor Innovation Conference begin March 3. The Work Truck Show exhibit hall opens March 4 and runs through noon on March 6.
“The Work Truck Show provides fleet managers with the unique opportunity to see the industry’s newest trucks and equipment, while also gathering innovative and practical ideas they can put into practice to improve fleet management and profitability,” says Doyle Sumrall, NTEA managing director.
New this year is Spec’ing for Success, a special session on Tuesday where fleet managers can participate in an in-depth, interactive workshop geared toward identifying correct specification components for many popular commercial vehicle applications. Following an overview of common components (terrain, axles, suspension, frame and weight distribution), presenters will cover how selections influence performance.
Sean Waters, vice president of product compliance and regulatory affairs for Daimler Trucks North America, will discuss the future of trucks powered by electricity, diesel fuel and hydrogen fuel cells as part of his keynote address at Green Truck Summit on Tuesday. After the keynote, attendees can participate in a variety of general sessions on clean energy trends and initiatives for commercial vehicles.

New products on tap for the 20th anniversary event range from OEM chassis, vehicle components, technology and equipment to complete trucks.
