Truck World, Canada’s largest and only national trucking trade show, is gearing up for the 2002 show. Truck World takes place September 26 – 28, 2002 at the National Trade Centre (CNE Grounds) in Toronto, Canada.

Over three action-packed days, Truck World brings together a dynamic business mix of key industry suppliers and professionals from all across North America. Truck World is an exciting showcase for anyone eager to see the latest in advanced components, cutting-edge equipment plus innovative business and fleet management solutions. Hundreds of leading exhibitors will display on over 400,000 square feet of show floor space. All major Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) exhibit at Truck World.

With the show’s location in the heartland of Canada’s trucking industry, Truck World visitors can expect to see the latest in equipment, products and services for the entire trucking industry. Truck World is the “must attend” trade show of the Canadian trucking industry. There’s something for fleet owners, managers and personnel, owner-operators, company drivers, fleet maintenance managers, mechanics, purchasing agents, aftermarket parts, trucks, trailers, material handlers or anyone interested in trucks! If you are involved in the trucking industry, this event is for you!

New convenient show hours coupled with thousands of acres of FREE parking for exhibitors and visitors for cars, trucks and big rigs (Class 7 & 8 only) make the show more convenient than ever to attend.

The 2002 show will see the return of a Driver Recruitment Plaza and the very popular Show n’ Shine competition featuring some of North America’s most beautiful rigs vying for cash and awards. The show will also feature many new exciting events and attractions, a strong line-up of targeted seminars, news conferences, free daycare services, trucker appreciation day and countless networking opportunities.

Maintenance and Technology Conference

to be Held at Truck World 2002

Truck World 2002 will host the launch of a maintenance and technology conference that will provide fleet maintenance managers, technicians and mechanics with high-quality information sessions and in-depth skills demonstrations. The first National Truck Maintenance and Technology Conference will take place on Thursday, September 26 and Friday, September 27 at the National Trade Centre (CNE Grounds) in Toronto.

“The OEMs and other major participants of Truck World asked the organizers to add a maintenance and technology component to the show,” said David Bradley, president of the Ontario Trucking Association and CEO of the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA).

“Truck World’s mandate is to put on shows of a quality that has never been offered before in Canada. The addition of a maintenance and technology program is a natural fit. It’s convenient for the country’s maintenance professionals who are already attending the Truck World show – it will make their show experience even more useful. And it’s cost-effective for OEMs and suppliers whose equipment and expert staff are also already at the show.”

The National Truck Maintenance and Technology Conference is planned as an annual event to be produced in Toronto under the auspices of the CTA. The CTA’s Maintenance and Technical Advisor, Rolf VanderZwaag, will oversee development of conference content with active participation from leading OEMs and suppliers. Like Truck World, all profits generated by the conference will be used to directly benefit the trucking industry through the CTA.

To ensure the conference will be a reliable and useful information resource for the industry, the National Truck Maintenance and Technology Conference will be offered annually in Toronto. The bi-annual Truck World, will host the Conference every second year.

Discussions during the initial meetings of the advisory committee have underscored the desire among all participants that the program content be of a quality not available anywhere else.

Truck World is owned and managed by the Ontario Trucking Association in association with the Canadian Trucking Alliance, a federation of all seven of the country’s provincial trucking associations.
