Updated: Charities hit Truck World for a good cause

April 30, 2018 by elizabeth

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – Maxine Shantz says all it took was one year of volunteering with the Special Olympics Convoy and she was hooked.

The Home Hardware employee took on tasks with the GTA branch of the project six years ago and has been more involved every year since. Including spending a day in the charity’s Truck World booth recruiting drivers, selling raffle tickets to raise money for the cause, and raising awareness.

Shantz says the booth at the biennial convention brings good exposure to the cause, forming a sense of community for drivers around the event and shines a light on the good things drivers do in a climate where they are often portrayed in the media as the bad guys after incidents on the road.

Truck World breaks attendance records

September 1, 2016 by John Smith

TORONTO, ON — Truck World, the largest trade show serving Canada’s trucking industry, attracted 18,820 people this year – breaking several records in the process.

“We attracted more people on each of the first two days than we did during the opening days of any previous Truck World,” confirmed Joe Glionna, vice president of Newcom Business Media, which produces Truck World and its companion Expocam trade show and also publishes this magazine. “The crowds of buyers and exhibitors speak to the strength of Canada’s trucking industry and the event itself.”

There were 14,862 visitors who walked through the halls of Toronto’s International Centre from April 14 to 16, interacting with 3,958 exhibitor representatives in more than 400 booths. Saturday’s “family day” numbers dropped slightly, likely due to summer-like conditions in the area, he added.

The show also saw a noticeable increase in attendees from Canada’s South Asian community, in a year when a new relationship was forged with JGK Media, Glionna said. The company’s Desi Trucking magazine was named the show’s official South Asian Media Partner.

World comes to Toronto for Truck World 2016

April 11, 2016 by Dave Nesseth

TORONTO, ON – The Toronto area’s International Centre will be at the centre of the trucking industry once again, as the Truck World trade show opens its doors April 14-16.

It’s where suppliers display their best and brightest, and in many cases offer the first look at new equipment.

The bi-annual event that traditionally attracts 20,000 visitors celebrates drivers as much as trucks. Sharing the spotlight will be the winner of the 2016 Highway Star of the Year Award. “This is one of the highest honors for a Canadian trucker, and clearly one of our favorite moments on the Today’s Trucking calendar,” says Today’s Trucking editor John G. Smith. The winner, selected from candidates across the nation, takes home $10,000 in cash and other prizes.

The world is coming to the event in other ways as well. This year’s Truck World will also feature Desi Trucking magazine as an official South Asian media partner, reflecting an increasingly diverse workforce.

“Growing ethnic communities are an important part of the trucking industry and it’s time to make a better effort at bringing the whole industry together under one roof,” said Joe Glionna, vice-president of Newcom Business Media, which hosts Truck World.
