It's nice to have something good to report every now and then, and today's news is pretty hard to beat. The National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) has seen very positive turnout for their Annual Meeting and Work Truck Show, being held this week in Chicago. On the first day of the show, NTEA's Meeting and Member Services Director, Steve Carey, was awfully happy with the crowds. According to Steve, registrations are up over 1,500 over last year's show, and as of the first day, approximately 6,000 attendees had already checked in. These aren't the official numbers, but the point is that a lot of people see the value in attending an industry event. And, based on the seminars I attended, the people who have made the investment to attend the Work Truck Show are going to return home to their offices much richer for it. Richer in information and richer in smarts, that is... Good show, NTEA!
