TORONTO, Ont. — Truck World 2002 will host the launch of a maintenance and technology conference providing a new national forum fleet maintenance managers, technicians and mechanics.
Dubbed the National Truck Maintenance and Technology Conference, the event is slated to take place on Sept. 26-27 at the National Trade Centre (on the 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,” says David Bradley, president Ontario Trucking Association/chief executive officer of Canadian Trucking Alliance.
“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 leadership of the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA). CTA 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; Truck World will only serve as the host venue every second year.
