Fleet Owner reported that there was more exhibit space (520 exhibitors covering more than 500,000 square feet of exhibit space) and educational programming in 2013 than ever before, and next year’s show is shaping up to be just as big. NTEA said that 95% of 2014’s exhibit space is already sold.
Held March 6-8 at the Indiana Convention Center, this year’s show was preceded by the Green Truck Summit, jointly produced by NTEA and CALSTART on March 5-6,

With a record level of exhibitor booths already sold for the 2014 show, we are confident that the industry is again poised for growth in the upcoming year.”
