Work Truck Week Welcomes Two NFL Hall of Famers

Jerome Bettis and Emmitt Smith will team up as keynote speakers at the NTEA annual meeting during 2024 Work Truck Week.

Jerome “The Bus” Bettis and Emmitt Smith, two of the National Football League’s greatest running backs, will team up as Work Truck Week 2024 keynote speakers at NTEA Annual Meeting on Thursday, March 7, 2024.

With four Super Bowl victories between them, the pair have plenty to share about teamwork, persistence and success, NTEA – The Work Truck Association said.

The Annual Meeting keynote will be a question-and-answer conversation between Bettis and Smith moderated by Jason Ritchey, 2024 NTEA Convention chair, and president and owner of Curry Supply Co.

Work Truck Week returns to Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis March 5–8, 2024. It encompasses The Work Truck Show®, Green Truck Summit, NTEA Annual Meeting, Ride & Drive, educational sessions, and more. Green Truck Summit is March 5, educational sessions run March 5–7, and Work Truck Show exhibits are open March 6–8. Registration opens in October at Work Truck Week is produced by NTEA – The Work Truck Association.

“Jerome Bettis and Emmitt Smith reached the pinnacle of their first chosen career – professional football – and then went on to build successful careers off the field, as well,” says Ritchey. “From football to TV to business, I can’t wait to hear their stories and perspectives… and maybe Emmitt will even share some dance tips he learned on Dancing with the Stars!”

Tickets for NTEA Annual Meeting, sponsored by Ford Pro, will be available for purchase when registration opens in October.
