The Southern Alberta Truck Exposition Association was established in 2015, by local businesses, and individuals, who wanted to make a difference in the trucking industry. Everything that we know, is touched by the transportation industry in one way or another, and our Association would like to work together with the general public and all involved with it, to ensure that the future of the industry remains strong. Working with the public, local businesses and organizations, we strive:
*To encourage individuals to consider a career in all areas of the trucking industry, and the supporting industries.
*To educate the general public on commercial vehicle safety
*To promote interest & a good relationship between the general public, the trucking industry, & the drivers.
*To raise awareness of the driver shortage & what that means to us all.
This year’s event will include a focus on educating and informing the general public on the shortages in every area of the trucking industry, but as well as looking at driver safety around commercial vehicles.
This year our goal is to educate the public on the importance of safety in and around commercial, and non-commercial vehicles, as well as continue with the Job Fair with local and international carriers participating in the Expo. Come and meet Gord Cooper, with Smokin Gun in the Main Pavilion, the world title holder for the fastest diesel truck, as well as experience what it is like to be behind the wheel of a Big Rig in the AMTA driving simulator, and enjoy the many trucks in our Show & Shine.
