“Great show! We had two of our newest trucks entered into the beauty contest…had a great time. Beautiful location. The amount of good drivers seeking employment with our company was tremendous…a great added benefit. Great fun and great for business!”
- Doug Titera, Chippewa Sand Transport
“ECBRTS was nothing short of tremendous. [The show] afforded us an opportunity to showcase our program and equipment. We spent the weekend talking to future, past and potential students as well as many others who have an interest in the transportation industry.”
- Bob Loughan, Truck Driving Instructor, Chippewa Valley Technical College
“…What a GREAT Truck Show you put on this past weekend!!! I have heard all positives from everyone I talked to. Usually in the past Truck Shows do not do much for us truck dealers, but this one did a very good job for us to see a lot of our customers over the weekend. My Salesmen were not real excited when I told them about the truck show a while back. However, all weekend and today they said this was the best Truck Show they have been involved in and felt it was worth while.
So again, thank you for inviting us and putting on a fantastic show! Look forward to the one next year!”
- Bob Tyman, General Manager, River States Truck and Trailer/NationaLease
“My wife wanted to stay in the car…until she saw the first truck with murals. We have been here all day. She loves it! Great family outing. Great for the Chippewa Valley. Please come back next year…”
- Spectator, age 60
“My grandson wanted to see the trucks. I thought I would do the “grandpa thing” and take him, as I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go myself. Guess what…I was so impressed we went back a second day! Awesome show…can’t wait until next year!”
- Business owner, Eau Claire
“We drove four hours from Minnesota to see the truck show. We did not really know what to expect. Saw a poster at a truck stop on I-94 while getting gas. What a great show! We spoke with some of the drivers and they shared some of their experiences. Great people! Fantastic show. The chrome and sleepers are unbelievable. We will tell our friends what they missed. See you next year!”
- Family of Four
“Several of us drove up from Waukesha just for the show. Better than a state fair! The women weren’t crazy about coming…now we can’t get them to leave. Thank you! We’ll be back next year for sure!”
“My wife said we could go for an hour or so…that was at 10:00 and we’re still here. Absolutely love it…this is great for Eau Claire. Eau Claire needs this.”
- Couple, age 50
“We exhibited in tent #1 at the truck show and were busy all weekend. We handed out some coupons and invited them to our store and we are still receiving them 2 months later. Fantastic show! See you next year.”
- Alex, owner of Pinehurst Hardware Hank/Stihl dealer
“After driving our Pete almost 500 miles to the show, we must say we were not disappointed in the least. Great location; beautiful and spacious venue. We have booked the same motel and will see you all soon. P.S. I have told other truckers about ECBRTS. There should be more new truckers coming.”
