Western Canada’s Biggest Trucking & Transportation Event Coming This May

 TRUXPO, Western Canada’s largest event in trucking and transportation, is gearing up for its return to TRADEX in Abbotsford this May 11 and 12. The biennial event attracted nearly 9,000 attendees in 2016 and is returning with new and expanded features for its 2018 edition.

Produced by Master Promotions Ltd. and presented by the British Columbia Trucking Association (BCTA), TRUXPO is the event where the BC industry meets to find new products and see the latest in commercial truck & transportation equipment. Anything and everything to do with trucking will be there: including transportation, forestry/logging, construction, towing and recovery, municipal fleets and courier/delivery companies.

“This year really will be bigger and better than ever for TRUXPO. Major industry players including Kenworth, International, Volvo, Peterbilt, and Mack Trucks are confirmed to be joining us, and booth space quickly selling out. Momentum continues to grow!” said Mark Cusack, National Show Manager. 

PRE-REGISTRATION is now open for TRUXPO 2018. Access convenient online registration here!

This year’s show includes many features for a growing and diverse audience including:

Half-day Conference Program – BC Sector Update and Opportunities for Trucking! This half-day conference will cover vital industry issues for executives in the trucking industry and the opportunity to network. For $30, attendees will receive a full line-up of presentations, a luncheon, and free admission to the trade show component of TRUXPO. Stay tuned for conference registration details.
Recruiting Here – For businesses and job-seekers alike, the Recruiting Here feature at TRUXPO is working to close the industry’s significant talent shortage. Network, recruit and hire (or get hired!) right at the show.
Executive Tour – giving exhibitors face time with a small group of high-level industry executives: a perfect opportunity to unveil new technology or innovative products. Includes VIP Presentations right in exhibitor booths!
Indigenous Works – focusing on an all-new partnership with this national organization to facilitate the inclusion and employment of Indigenous workers in the BC warehousing and transportation sector.
Salute to Women Behind the Wheel – celebrating the “good and great” of being a woman in the trucking industry by recognizing successes, promoting accomplishments and offering encouragement.  
Driver & Family Day – looking toward the future of the industry, with admission specials, thousands in prizes to be awarded, family-friendly entertainment, interactive games, and lots more. 

TRUXPO has enjoyed continued success since it began in 1988, and both Master Promotions Ltd. and BCTA can’t wait to present this new and expanded version for 2018.
