Work Truck Week moved to March 2022

October 21, 2020 By    

For the first time in its 20-year history, The Work Truck Show won’t take place in person. NTEA, the association for the work truck industry, announced the cancellation of next year’s show amid health and safety concerns tied to the COVID-19 pandemic.

North America’s largest work truck event, originally scheduled March 9-12, 2021, in Indianapolis, includes The Work Truck Show and Green Truck Summit.

While there are no plans to hold its Work Truck Week virtually, NTEA says it is exploring new opportunities to share education and connect industry businesses. Work Truck Week will return to Indianapolis March 8-11, 2022.

The association issued the following statement from board of directors Chair Peter Miller and NTEA President and CEO Steve Carey: “After extensive and careful deliberation, we have realized a typical Work Truck Week is not possible in 2021. The health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors and staff is paramount, and was a driving factor in the board of directors assessing the feasibility of the 2021 event.”

Miller and Carey said board and staff leadership collaborated with partners in Indianapolis to find creative solutions.

“However, due to necessary restrictions imposed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, options for delivering a high-quality, productive in-person event are not possible,” the statement continued. “We cannot confidently ensure attendees, exhibitors and industry stakeholders will be able to accomplish their goals or get what they need (and rightfully expect) from Work Truck Week.”

NTEA is now focusing on identifying ways to best support its members and the industry in the year ahead while planning for 2022.

“While we do not feel Work Truck Week can be adequately captured in a virtual setting, there are potential opportunities to share education and connect industry businesses,” they added. “More information will be released in the coming weeks.”

Exhibitors and sponsors can choose to apply deposits to the 2022 event or receive refunds, NTEA says. Attendee registration and housing for Work Truck Week 2021 had not opened.
