The North American Commercial Vehicle Show is set to debut Sept. 25-29, 2017 in Atlanta.

The show, which will be focused on the commercial fleet and heavy-truck market, will consist of more than 300,000 square feet of exhibition space.

According to a news release, the NACV Show will allow suppliers, commercial vehicle OEMs and the supply chain to meet with and address the needs of the North American commercial vehicle industry audience. The show will be held on alternating years from the Deutsche Messe-hosted show in Hannover, Germany.

The NACV Show will be organized and managed jointly by Hannover Fairs USA and Newcom Business Media.

“The new North American Commercial Vehicle Show is a perfect fit with Deutsche Messe’s commercial vehicle events portfolio,” said Larry Turner, the President and CEO of Hannover Fairs USA. “Hannover Fairs USA and Newcom are uniquely positioned to develop and organize this new event while working with the industry to guarantee the needs of all participants are met.”

The NACV Show will specifically target North American-based commercial fleet owners, owner operators, commercial and light commercial vehicle dealers, distributors, repair shops, truck manufacturers and the commercial vehicle trade media, according to a news release.

“We look forward to working with Hannover Fairs USA to leverage Deutsche Messe and Newcom’s commercial vehicle event expertise, experience and sales network to gain a strong position in the United State with major manufacturers and pertinent industry associations,” said Joe Glionna, the Vice President and General Manager of the NewCom Business Media.

In late March, the American Trucking Associations announced plans to explore development of a new commercial vehicle event. ATA, along with the Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association division of the Motor and Equipment Manufacturers Association, said it had entered into an agreement with Messe Frankfurt to develop a new, biennial North American based truck and transportation event that also would take place in odd numbered years.

No further details have been released.
