TORONTO, Ont. – Carriers, suppliers, and trucking enthusiasts will gather together on April 14-16 at the International Centre for Canada’s national truck show –Truck World – hosted by Newcom Business Media.
The biennial event is expected to attract more than 20,000 visitors over three days where they can interact with suppliers to find out about the latest technology and products on the market, meet with for-hire fleets for job opportunities, and socialize with other trucking fans.
On Saturday April 16, be one of the show’s first 2,000 visitors and you will receive a free hat, compliments of the show’s exhibitors. Throughout the show there is also a chance for attendees to win one of five free iPads.
This year, organizers have brought back the Driver Recruitment Pavilion – the country’s largest recruitment opportunity where it is expected that close to 5,000 drivers will be interacting with more than 70 potential employers.
As well, during the show, one of Canada’s best pro drivers will be crowned Highway Star of the Year for 2016.
The location and space of the International Centre is ideal for Canada’s national truck show. It features 5,000 free parking spaces and is located by the airport, so there isn’t any downtown traffic to hit.
New this year at Truck World is the addition of Desi Trucking magazine as the official South Asian media partner.
“Growing ethnic communities are an important part of the trucking industry and it’s time to make a better effort at bringing the whole industry together under one roof,” said Joe Glionna, vice-president of Newcom Business Media.
On April 13, the day before Truck World officially opens, the International Centre will play host to the Canadian Fleet Maintenance Summit – an all-day educational and networking event dedicated to truck fleet maintenance professionals. The summit features a day of educational seminars for attendees and is where the coveted Canadian Fleet Maintenance Manager of the Year will be revealed. The award is presented to a fleet maintenance manager or director to celebrate his/her outstanding contribution to the trucking industry based on criteria such as scheduled maintenance programs and in-house training initiatives.
