The author reflects on the developments in the 2007 National Truck Equipment Association's (NTEA) Work Truck Show. The author compares 2007 Supershow I which filled the football field of the Louisiana Superdome, to the Work Truck Show wherein the exhibits that filled the RCA Dome were merely a spillover from the much larger exhibit center next door. He says that the industry has grown a lot since Supershow I and believes the industry provides a vital service.
