Moncton, NB – Shining displays of trucks, trailers, and more are headed to the Atlantic Truck Show this Friday and Saturday. The largest event of its kind east of Montreal, the Atlantic Truck Show will take place June 7 & 8. It is presented by the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association.
“With move-in happening throughout the week, we’re busy getting everything in place for show open on Friday,” said Mark Cusack, National Show Manager. “A diverse range of products will be on site, from a variety of trucks and trailers, to transmissions, work vehicles, cargo power solutions and a lot more. Vocational trucks are also a big focus for us this year. There’s a reason the industry looks forward to this event every two years – it’s a big one.”
The show draws visitors from throughout New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and beyond. Held every two years, the event attracts significant crowds, with more than 12,000 attendees taking part in the most recent edition in 2017.
