Langley, BC – TRUXPO, Western Canada’s largest trucking and logistics show, will return to TRADEX in Abbotsford, British Columbia, September 19 and 20, 2014, with exciting new developments!

TRUXPO is the event where industry meets to find new products and see the latest in commercial truck and transportation equipment. Fleet managers, truck buyers, operators, service personnel and distributors will be able to talk to sales and technical staff face to face to assist and plan their next purchase.

Local, national and international exhibitors and visitors will be at TRUXPO, which is one of Canada’s largest exhibitions of Class 5-8 trucks and equipment and other industry-related products and services. The event will also showcase trucks used in forestry, construction and other vocational trucks with an emphasis on Class 1-4 vehicles. If it’s a work truck, it will be showcased at TRUXPO next September.

The BC Trucking Association (BCTA) is once again hosting the event.

“BCTA is pleased to present TRUXPO 2014 in partnership with Master Promotions, which has developed an outstanding event representing the entire trucking industry in Western Canada,” said Greg Munden, BCTA Chairperson and President of Munden Ventures Ltd.

“We would like to welcome the Alberta Motor Transport Association, the Saskatchewan and Manitoba Trucking Associations, the Northern BC Truckers Association and the Central Interior Logging Association as new sponsors of the show. Their endorsement truly creates a western Canadian event,” said Munden.

Several new developments are planned for 2014, including a conference program. Conference sessions are designed to appeal to industry professionals from the western provinces and these will be timely, informative and full of relevant industry information. BCTA will provide a detailed conference program in the near future. Show producer Master Promotions Ltd. is also planning a Show & Shine, Multi-cultural Events and Driver Appreciation Day, among other new highlights, and the popular Recruiting Here feature will also return for 2014.
