Unprecedented demand drives Green Truck Summit to larger location at Work Truck Week 2022
Program covers electric, hydrogen and fuel cell vehicles, plus other clean energy trends
Work Truck Week, North America's largest work truck event, is scheduled March 8–11, 2022, at Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Green Truck Summit is March 8 at the adjacent JW Marriott Indianapolis. Education sessions run March 8–10, and the Work Truck Show exhibit hall is open March 9–11.
"The work truck industry is ready to get back together in person," says Kevin Koester, NTEA managing director. "We hear daily from exhibitors and attendees how much they're looking forward to reconnecting with their friends and colleagues, seeing all the new work trucks, equipment and technology, and learning the latest trends and best practices. Registration for Green Truck Summit is running about 20% higher than in 2020, so we're making this move to accommodate more people without overcrowding."
Green Truck Summit brings together government representatives, educators, fleets, manufacturers and innovators to provide updates on the work truck industry's path to zero emissions. Sessions offer operational insights for vocational truck fleet managers, as well as perspectives on the evolution of commercial vehicles and advanced technology development.
Liane Randolph, chair of the California Air Resources Board (CARB), will deliver the keynote address. New this year is a full slate of 16 short breakout sessions in the afternoon.
Green Truck Summit registration includes access to the Work Truck Show exhibit hall where attendees can check out the latest products from more than 500 exhibiting companies and can participate in the Work Truck Week Ride & Drive, March 9–10. Ride & Drive features 19 commercial vehicles with the latest advanced technologies, sustainability offerings and alternative fuel applications.
Health and safety
To provide a reassuring business environment where the commercial vehicle community can be productive while reconnecting, Work Truck Week 2022 is increasing event and session room spacing, reducing touchpoints with more self-service registration kiosks, and implementing a free health screening process all attendees must pass before badge pickup.
