The Work Truck Show is North America's largest work truck event. Produced annually by NTEA, the 2016 Show will be held March 2–4 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Educational programming, including the Green Truck Summit, begins March 1.

"By following our new social media accounts, attendees and exhibitors will be better positioned to connect with each other and have a successful experience at The Work Truck Show 2016," says Steve Carey, NTEA executive director. "We'll interact with followers and post live updates from the trade show floor on The Work Truck Show Facebook page. On Twitter, the new @WTS_exhibitors account will be an invaluable resource for exhibitors as they prepare for the event. Using these tools, it will be easier than ever for work truck industry professionals to leverage the event to build their businesses and improve their operations."

While www.facebook.com/TheWorkTruckShow is dedicated to Work Truck Show content, general NTEA and industry news can still be found at www.facebook.com/NTEA.TheAssociationForTheWorkTruckIndustry. On Twitter, the new @WTS_exhibitors handle will complement NTEA's existing @WorkTruckShow and @NTEANews accounts.

The Work Truck Show 2016 conversation has begun on all of these channels. Join in with the event's official hashtag, #worktrucks16, and the official Green Truck Summit hashtag, #greentrucks16.

Each of these opportunities is also included in a new resource developed to make it easy for NTEA members and Work Truck Show exhibitors to participate in social media surrounding the Association and its events. The Social Media Toolkit is available as a free download at ntea.com/freedownloads.

The Work Truck Show features the newest vocational trucks, vans, vehicle components and equipment on a trade show floor covering more than 500,000 square feet. The event includes a robust educational conference with more than 60 sessions designed to help attendees improve efficiency, grow their operations and more.
