Winnipeg show & shine to feature tons of glitz

The Winnipeg Truck Show will have 30 of the best show trucks anywhere prepped and ready for display on Edmonton Street.

Interested in showing your beautiful rig? Show & Shine details and applications are available online at www.winnipegtruckshow.com.

Edmonton Street will be closed to traffic both days, so you’ll be free to wander. Saturday afternoon, these chrome-laden chariots will form a convoy and parade through town. It’s a way of shouting to the world that The Winnipeg Truck Show is back and better than ever.

The New Winnipeg Truck Show -- now owned and operated by Newcom Business Media (the publisher of this magazine) -- rolls into Manitoba’s capital city May 23rd and 24th, 2008. With more than 125 exhibitors on a 120,000-plus-sq.-ft. exhibit floor, the Winnipeg Truck Show brings the entire industry to one location for two full days.

Visitors will find the latest in trucks, trailers, heavy-duty parts and accessories, engines and power-train components, service-shop equipment and supplies, tires, fuels, financial services, and many other products and services that are crucial to the trucking industry.

Who’s going to be there? Everybody. Transport company owners, fleet managers and drivers, owner-operators, managers and purchasing agents, service-shop owners, private carriers, garage personnel, government transport officials and heavy-duty parts jobbers will all attend the show.

A series of need-to-know free seminars will also be offered to the expected 8,000 industry professionals from across Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and Saskatchewan who will converge in Winnipeg for this important industry event.

And don’t forget the fun part: Exhibitors and visitors are invited to a Friday evening party featuring a Johnny Cash Tribute band.
