American Trucking Associations (ATA) President and CEO Chris Spear said the trucking group has agreed to be a supporter of the North American Commercial Vehicle Show (NACVS), a new biennial truck show to be held for the first time in Atlanta later this year.


“As the nation’s foremost trucking industry association, it only made sense for ATA to support our supplier community, many of whom have committed to this endeavor,” Spear said. “The North American Commercial Vehicle Show promises to be an excellent event and we are pleased to be a part of it.”


The NACVS, a joint venture between Hannover Fairs USA and Newcom Media USA, will be held every two years, with the first show scheduled for September 25 – 29 in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center.


“ATA is a well-known and respected name in the trucking industry, and we are excited to have their support as we launch this new show,” said Joe Glionna, President of Newcom. “We look forward to their participation in what promises to be a first-class event this September.”


“Commercial vehicle manufacturers and suppliers have eagerly embraced the North American Commercial Vehicle Show, which has almost sold out of exhibitor space for 2017,” said Larry Turner, President and CEO of Hannover Fairs USA. “We are proud of the progress we’ve made since announcing the show last year and appreciate ATA’s support.”
