Going to a truck show is like attending a family reunion. There’s plenty of good food, entertainment and excitement in the air. But the best part is getting together with other truckers, people who know exactly what it’s like on the road. It’s also a great opportunity to see new trucks, gather information to help you become a better driver and meet new friends in the industry.
I’m excited to announce that the Randall-Reilly Events Group is sponsoring the Truck Show Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 7-9. The Truck Show Las Vegas will include displays by truck, trailer, engine and components manufacturers as well as other suppliers. You’ll have the opportunity to explore career opportunities in the expedited trucking segment, attend seminars, check out show trucks and, of course, explore the wild nightlife of Las Vegas.
If Lady Luck doesn’t lead you to Vegas or the 2007 Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, August 23-25, then we’ve got a show coming to a truckstop near you!
America’s Traveling Truck Show 2007 kicked off its second year in Atlanta in March and will travel to 29 locations across the country.
Back by popular demand, ATTS features product exhibitions, truck dealers, entertainment and prizes. You can see new and used Class 8 trucks for sale; show trucks; new engines; new components such as seats and suspension and braking systems; and other new products. There are employment opportunities at selected locations and plenty of music, entertainment and old-fashioned fun. The best part? Last year ATTS gave away more than $15,000 worth of prizes to Richard Waller of Racine, Wis., for being the 2006 Dream Package winner.
The 2007 Dream Package features thousands of dollars in prizes and includes a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Truckers can register for the Harley at the shows.
