FARMINGTON HILLS, MI (Jan. 19, 2015) — The Mercedes-Benz Metris midsize van will make its world premiere at The Work Truck Show® 2015. It is one of more than 100 new commercial vehicles and related products set to debut at North America’s largest work truck event. Additional chassis OEMs with press conferences scheduled at the event include Ford Commercial Vehicles, Ram Commercial, Freightliner Trucks and International Truck. More than 60 other exhibiting companies also have announced plans to introduce their latest equipment and technology at the Show.
The Work Truck Show 2015, produced by NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry, is held March 4–6 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN. Educational programming, including the Green Truck Summit, begins March 3.
“If you want to see what’s new in the vocational truck world, The Work Truck Show is the place to be,” says Steve Carey, NTEA executive director. “Leading manufacturers use the Show as an opportunity to introduce new equipment and technology to the industry.”
The New Product Spotlight program gives Work Truck Show attendees the chance to learn about the hottest new products at the Show even before the doors open. Once on-site, attendees will not only have the opportunity to see new products on display, they can also talk to exhibiting company engineers and product experts in the booths to gain a better understanding about how the products work.
