The second North American Commercial Vehicle Show promises to include all major Class 8 truck manufacturers for the 2019 show, including Peterbilt and Kenworth for the first time. Freightliner, Western Star, Volvo Trucks, Mack Trucks, Navistar, and Hino all will return to the biennual show launched in 2017, displaying and launching new products on the NACV show floor.
The second NACV show is set for Oct. 28-31, 2019, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The show is growing and will cover 530,000 square feet of exhibition space, up from 370,000 square feet, and is expanding into a second building. Organizers expect to host more than 500 exhibitors, up from 439 in 2017. More than 15,000 fleet management attendees are expected to visit the show in 2019, more than double the number of attendees at the inaugural event.
In addition to truck makers, NACV will also host leading trailer manufacturers and top tier suppliers, including Bendix, BorgWarner, Bosch, ConMet, Continental, Cooper Tire, Cummins Inc., Dana, Dorsey Trailer, Great Dane, Hendrickson, Holland, Hyundai Translead, Meritor, SAF Holland, Tenneco, Thermo King, Utility Trailer Manufacturing, Wabash, and Wabco.
The show will offer looks at the latest model power units and trailers, advanced driver assistance systems, fuel efficiency equipment, safety technologies and electronic logging devices. For 2019, it will also include a broader array of maintenance services, high-quality truck accessories, and driver retention and recruiting services.
“Since its 2017 launch in Atlanta, the NACV Show continues to impress the industry with its cutting-edge demonstrations of commercial vehicle innovations and technologies,” said Larry Turner, president and CEO of Hannover Fairs USA, NACV’s co-organizer with partner Newcom Media. “We are excited to expand the event’s footprint and offerings next year, and to continue to focus on the needs of a larger audience of fleet owners, fleet managers, fleet maintenance managers and other key decision makers from across North America.”
