Louisville, KY — Mid-America Trucking Show organizers have become used to hosting increasingly larger shows, but they say the 2006 show will highlight a growth spurt more impressive than anything else the show has ever experienced.

With the completion of the South Wing C expansion providing more than 160,000 sq. ft. of additional exhibit space and the ever-rising demand for more space, the 2006 show is absolutely “busting at the seams”, they say.

“In total, the show will once again encompass more than 1 million square feet of exhibit space at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky. The show continues to raise the bar as more than 1,100 industry leading companies are currently signed up to exhibit at the show, surpassing last year’s total and further reinforcing Mid-America’s position as the premier tradeshow in the trucking industry,” show organizers said in a release.

Along with product innovations and the latest in product unveilings, show atttendees will be invited to visit the show’s numerous annual attractions including the new Expediter Experience, Mid-America’s Recruitment Center, the Internet & Technology Center, and for the 6th consecutive year, the Paul K. Young Memorial Truck Beauty Championship along with the 2nd Annual Mid-America’s Big-Rig Build-Off.

Nightly entertainment opportunities will also be available, including: Thursday March 23 at 6:00 PM, the Orange County Choppers with their “Tribute to the American Trucker” will unveil the Speedco Chopper along with a performance by The Road Hammers; Friday March 24, George Thorogood headlines Kenworth Truck Company’s 18th annual “Trucker Appreciation Concert” at 7:30 PM in Freedom hall, with newcomer Jason Aldean scheduled as the opening act; and Saturday March 25, Nickelback will be rolling through Freedom Hall at 7:30 PM for a live concert with opening acts Trapt and Chevelle.
