INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The ever-growing Work Truck Show has landed itself a high-profile keynote speaker. Former US president George W. Bush will address the show’s President’s Breakfast & NTEA Annual Meeting on March 7, 2012 at the Indiana Convention Center.

The show runs March 5-8 and showcases a vast assortment of vocational trucks and related equipment. It is hosted by the National Truck Equipment Association, which represents the work truck industry.

Bush was the 43rd president of the US. He’ll provide insights into the challenges facing the nation in the 21st century, the power of freedom, the role of faith and other timely issues, Work Truck Show organizers announced.

“President Bush led this country through times of great economic growth, as well as times of national tragedy,” said Frank Livas, NTEA 2012 convention chairman and senior vice-president of Brake & Clutch of Salem, Mass. “It is a privilege to have him address our members and event attendees. We look forward to hearing his reflections on the presidency and his thoughts on leadership and decision-making.”

Tickets to the breakfast are just US$59 for NTEA members and $79 for non-members, but organizers warn they usually sell out early. A ticket is included in a complete package, which sells for US$339 for members and $419 for non-members.
