FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (June 18, 2024) — Leading chassis manufacturers will gather Oct. 15–16, 2024, at Kalahari Resorts & Conventions (Sandusky, Ohio) to share the latest chassis and technical updates at NTEA’s Commercial Vehicle Upfitting Summit.

“NTEA’s Commercial Vehicle Upfitting Summit is the place for vehicle upfitters and OEMs to connect on important technical updates that impact their businesses,” said Kevin Koester, NTEA managing director. “In addition to the OEM technical sessions and vehicle displays, there are educational sessions and industry resource displays to engage attendees.”

This annual event provides an important opportunity for the technical community to preview commercial vehicle updates and engage with OEM engineers on critical upfitting issues. Industry professionals can learn about important changes to powertrains, electrical systems, chassis structures and other vehicle systems. Having the ability to speak directly with chassis OEM engineers and product specialists translates to practical support for upfitters.
