This week, I will be attending the Mid-West Truck and Trailer Show, which takes place on February 3rd & 4th, 2023 in Peoria, Illinois. The show has been held each year since 1962. I have attended the show for over a decade and a half in Peoria, and mother nature has thrown every kind of winter weather at us. This year, we will have days starting in the single digits as Clark Reed and I prepare our trucks for the show. On the actual days of the show, which are Friday and Saturday, mother nature is giving us a break with a mild start of the day of 18 degrees, and a high of 28 degrees Fahrenheit. Saturday starts at a similar temperature, but will rise to an almost spring-like 39 degrees.
The event brings exhibitors and organizations looking to showcase a variety of high-quality and innovative technology together, which attracts potential buyers and attendees of the show. The show offers a particular focus on trucks, trailers, parts, and truck accessories. You will also find a vast array of products from various automotive segments, media, and advertising.
Clark Reed and I will have our 2022 Freightliner Cascadia’s, Enzo and Celeste, on hand for you to take an up-close look at. This is always a great event! We look forward to seeing you in Peoria, IL at the Mid-West Truck & Trailer Show.
