TORONTO, Ont. — All roads will lead to Toronto’s International Centre as thousands of truckers converge on Airport Road to attend Canada’s National Truck Show.
Truck World is Canada’s largest truck show, featuring the latest in product design, technology, specialty equipment, support materials, and services for the trucking industry.
Fleet owners, owner-operators, company truck and trailer purchasing agents, parts distributors, mechanics, traffic managers and fleet maintenance managers will meet and network with colleagues, make purchases and attend informative seminars.
All major Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) will be exhibiting and truck giants such as Eaton, Freightliner, Hino, General Motors, Mack, International, Volvo, Thermo King, Mitsubishi Fuso, Sterling, Trailmobile, Peterbilt, Western Star, Cummins, Kenworth, Manac, Detroit Diesel and Caterpillar, plus hundreds of other leading suppliers will be on hand.
The show will be kicked off in grand style at 8:15am on April 22 with a VIP Breakfast featuring Patrick E. Quinn. Mr. Quinn is Co-Chairman and co-founder, with Max Fuller, of U.S. Xpress Enterprises, one of the continent’s largest truckload carriers and perhaps its most innovative fleet of any sort. A renowned ‘early adopter’ of new technologies with the operations and safety advances they bring, U.S. Xpress is also very successful – and the proof is in seven consecutive quarterly periods of year-over-year improvement in earnings and operating results. Tickets are $50.00 and will be available for purchase until April 16th, by calling Karen McCumber at 1-888-454-7469.
The 2004 show features the National Truck Beauty Competition in Hall 5 where Canada’s most beautiful and powerful trucks will compete for coveted prizes and trophies. The National Truck Beauty Competition is sponsored by Peterbilt, Dieter’s, Bridgestone Firestone and Cancom Tracking. Also in Hall 5 will be a series of free seminars exploring topics such as hours of service, how to buy a used truck, truck cosmetics, cross border issues and more. The Ontario Trucking Association’s Road Sharing exhibit will be on display as well.
