— Dozens of new products and technological innovations are introduced annually at The Work Truck Show, the largest gathering of Class 1-8 commercial trucks and equipment in North America. To recognize some of the best, the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) will present two awards at The Work Truck Show 2006 – the New Product Innovation Award and the Editors’ Choice Award for New Product Innovation. The Work Truck Show 2006 is held in conjunction with the 42nd Annual NTEA Convention at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, March 1-3, 2006 (convention and educational sessions start Feb. 28).For New Product Innovation Award eligibility, exhibitors must participate in the New Product Spotlight program — a multi-media campaign that publicizes new products prior to, during, and following the show. Participating exhibitors are automatically entered to compete in the award program.Work Truck Show attendees are invited to vote for what they consider the most innovative product introduced through the Spotlight program. The exhibitor receiving the most attendee votes wins the right to use the “Work Truck Show 2006 New Product Innovation Award Winner” designation in its marketing efforts as well as a special plaque. In addition, the winner will be featured in a variety of NTEA media.The New Product Innovation Award was introduced at The Work Truck Show 2004. The most re-cent winner was A.L.
