Moncton, NB – In less than a month, the region’s largest and most-inclusive trucking show, the Atlantic Truck Show, returns to the Moncton Coliseum. Taking place June 9-10, 2017, this key trade event is presented by the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association.
Considered THE event for industry stakeholders to research and purchase the latest trucks and related products on the market, this event takes place biennially and is typically attended by over 12,000 visitors over the two days of the show.
“This massive event will take over the entire Moncton Coliseum Complex, inside and out,” said Mark Cusack, National Show Manager. “Visitors will get to check out gleaming displays of big rigs and industry-related products and services… along with opportunities to see specialty and antique trucks, take part in a test drive, and maybe even find a new job!”
One of the exciting features taking place at this year’s edition is Women in Trucking’s 2nd Annual Canadian Salute to Women Behind the Wheel, a celebration to honour female truck drivers and recognize them for their service.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to have the Salute to Women taking place in conjunction with the Atlantic Truck Show,” said Joanne Ritchie, Executive Director of the Owner-Operator’s Business Association of Canada (OBAC). “This marks only the second time the event has happened in Canada. It’s important to celebrate the contributions of female professional drivers in a male-dominated industry, and the Atlantic Truck Show is the perfect venue to do so!”
The Salute takes place on the Saturday of the show and is open to any female professional driver. It will include refreshments, door prizes, giveaways and a group photo. The Salute to Women Behind the Wheel is presented by OBAC, Trucking Human Resources Sector Council Atlantic, and the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association, in partnership with Women in Trucking.
Additional features happening as part of the Atlantic Truck Show’s 2017 edition include:
- Innovative Product Awards, with one winner and two runners up being recognized at the APTA Shifting Gears Breakfast on Friday, June 9th
