The National Truck Equipment Association’s (NTEA) Work Truck Show (WTS) and Green Truck Summit (GTS) will take place March 3-6, 2020 in Indianapolis. The Show has become the premier event of the year for the work truck industry and vocational and government fleets, and GTS is a must for any fleet and industry leaders focused on sustainable technologies.
As a new addition to its program, NTEA is hosting Clean Cities Day — a special event for Clean Cities chapters (specifically Clean Fuels Ohio) on Tuesday, March 3. This will provide exclusive and unprecedented access and benefits for fleet leaders who are stakeholders and members of DOE Clean Cities coalitions, including Clean Fuels Ohio (CFO). Benefits include a free personal and exclusive tour of the Show floor conducted by NTEA leaders, special hosted meetings at conference facilities, and more. As in past years, Clean Fuels Ohio also will provide members and stakeholders free passes to the Show for one day.
“These are exciting times for our industry as several effective alternative fuel offerings are reaching maturity and there are a host of new products and services,” said George Survant, NTEA Senior Director of Fleet Relations. “These innovations are tailored to advance state-of-the-art transportation options designed to improve air quality, reduce demand for petroleum-based solutions and promote sustainable energy sources.
“There’s no better place to see these commercial vehicle offerings and interact with leading suppliers than at Work Truck Show 2020,” continued Survant. “North America’s largest work truck event again features the latest vocational trucks, vans, vehicle components and truck equipment from 530 exhibitors on a Show floor covering more than 500,000 square feet.”
“We appreciate NTEA and want our fleet partners to join us over in Indianapolis for at least one day, or as much of the Show and Summit as possible,” said Sam Spofforth, Executive Director of Clean Fuels Ohio. “We will have a strong presence with four of our staff members in attendance.”
Specific plans for Clean Fuels Ohio members and fleet stakeholders are taking shape over the next few months. They are expected to include meetings to launch new programs funded by recent U.S. Department of Energy Grants and additional networking functions, including participation in the private Show tour conducted by lead NTEA staff, followed by a special facilitated discussion.
