Trucking show celebrates 50th anniversary this winter
When a trucking convention has been around for the past five decades, drivers can be assured that it is not an event to be missed. The Mid-West Truck Show will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year at the beginning of February by pulling out all the stops during this massive trucking gathering. Advocate groups for trucker health and safety, equipment vendors and plenty of professionals will all be on hand to offer truckers and fleet management owners the opportunity to learn more about the growing industry.
According to the Mid-West Truckers Association's website, the event will be held for two full days in Peoria, Illinois at the city's Civic Center. Open for free to the public, there will be more than 200 exhibitions, contests and demonstrations on hand that will celebrate everything that has to do with life on the road. Nearly 3,000 trucking companies will be represented during the big rig beauty contests, seminars on eco-friendly trucking and equipment showcases.
Thousands are expected to attend the popular conference that now reaches truckers and fleet businesses throughout North America, reports the Trucker. New drivers who have recently completed their CDL training may want to participate in events like these that provide further insight into a truck driving career.
