The ProPickup Truck Expo – a new trade show that showcases pickups and accessories used in construction, trucking, landscaping and similar industries – will take place Aug. 22-24 as part of the Great American Trucking Show, held annually at the Dallas Convention Center.

“With the addition of our ProPickup Truck Expo, we will be providing attendees with the unique opportunity to see vehicles, accessories and services that cover the entire trucking world from full-size pickups to Class 8 trucks,” says Alan K. Sims, vice president and executive director of the Randall-Reilly Events Group.

The ProPickup Truck Expo, which runs concurrent with GATS in an adjoining exhibition hall, will be produced by Randall-Reilly’s ProPickup magazine in conjunction with the Randall-Reilly Events Group.

“The ProPickup Truck Expo will give attendees the opportunity to talk with manufacturers whose products make pickups more efficient and better performers on and off the road,” says Dan Tidwell, senior vice president and group publisher of the Randall Reilly Construction Media Group. “Pickups play an integral role in virtually every business at the heart of our economy, from construction to trucking and beyond.”

In addition to hundreds of aftermarket automotive products and vehicles on display, the ProPickup Truck Expo will provide educational seminars called SmartSessions headlined by industry leaders and experts in the automotive aftermarket.

“Our SmartSessions will cover a wide range of topics of interest to pickup owners, from how to increase fuel mileage to setting up the mobile office to spec’ing out their next new pickup,” says Bruce Smith, editor of ProPickup.

The 2012 ProPickup Truck Expo and the Great American Trucking Show will be held Aug. 22-24 at the Dallas Convention Center. For more information, contact Rhianna Richey, regional sales manager, at or 205-248-1524.
