"If you're looking for new trucks for your fleet or equipment to improve your existing vehicles' performance, The Work Truck Show is the place to go," says Steve Carey, NTEA executive director.

During each presentation, company representatives share technical information about their latest chassis specifications and designs, and review body and equipment installation options. They also provide insights into their future plans related to the work truck industry.
