Great West Truck Show to offer new format, venue


The Great West Truck Show will move to a new Las Vegas location and present a new conference format for its 2012 event.

The Great West Fleet Executive conference, scheduled for two half-day sessions, is designed to help fleets do business in the West. Both the conference and the trade show will be June 14-16 at the Las Vegas Sands Expo and Convention Center and adjoining Venetian Palazzo Hotel.

“With the addition of the Great West Fleet Executive Conference, we will be providing exclusive content focusing on Western trucking operations, environmental regulations and other issues related to doing business in the West,” said Alan K. Sims, vice president and executive director of the Randall-Reilly Events Group. “The trucking industry in the Western U.S. faces unique obstacles and has more stringent environmental restrictions than the rest of the country. Great West will now be the entry point for fleets and businesses to get the best understanding of that marketplace.”

The show also will feature the Custom Rigs Pride & Polish truck competition.
