YORK—York County won a competitive bid to host the 2015 American Truck Historical Society's National Convention and Antique Truck Show May 28th-30th, 2015 at the York Expo Center. Planners expect the event to draw hundreds of antique trucks and thousands of enthusiasts, and anticipate bringing over $3 million to the community in economic impact.
"The York County Convention & Visitors Bureau (YCCVB) is excited to welcome an event of this stature to our community," said YCCVB Chairman, Rebecca Costello. "Events such as ATHS continue to put York County on the map."
Incorporated in 1971, the not-for-profit American Truck Historical Society was formed to preserve the history of trucks, the trucking industry, and its pioneers. It boasts over 21,000 members in the United States, Australia, Canada and 20 other countries worldwide. During the three day event, visitors will be able to see nearly every type of vintage truck imagineable, from small pickup trucks to the big rigs, at the York Expo Center.
"We are very excited to bring the ATHS National Convention & Antique Truck Show to York," said Bill Johnson, executive director of ATHS. "We look forward to hosting a successful event in 2015."
