2022 NATDA Trailer Show Shatters Show’s Previous Records.

             St. Petersburg, Fla. – The NATDA Trailer Show returned to Nashville, Tennessee, from August 31- September 2
for the largest show in the event’s history. The 2022 event shattered its previous attendance and exhibit space
records.
The show, known as a one-stop shop for light and medium-duty trailer industry professionals, hosted over
3,000 individuals with approximately 600 North American dealerships in attendance. Its exhibit space occupied
the most extensive square footage in the show’s history featuring over 310 exhibitors. The show also expanded
its international presence, attracting participants from ten countries outside the United States.
“It was great to see how exciting and active the NATDA Trailer Show was!” remarked Rick McConnell, NATDA’s
CEO. “I had the opportunity to speak with many exhibitors and attendees and the overall feedback message
was incredibly positive. The buzz on the show floor, the Wounded Warriors keynote, the special events
occurring throughout the week led to making this event special. I see firsthand how hard NATDA team works to
deliver great attendance and a strong exhibit base….and it has paid off for 2022. I cannot wait for the 2023
show!”“

               The pandemic caused a myriad of challenges for businesses, and the trailer industry was not immune.
Dealerships continue to work to overcome disrupted supply chain and employment models, and more,” added
NATDA President Jennifer Hoff. “The show offered the most comprehensive education program the NATDA has
ever produced designed to address the resultant issues that impact dealerships. The sessions encouraged
dialogue and information sharing among participants.”
The NATDA Trailer Show will return to Nashville again at Music City Center in 2023, from August 30 through
September 1. The NATDA expects the show floor to sell out quickly based on the number of already committed
exhibitors returning.“

               We’ve received an unprecedented amount of recommitment from exhibitors for next year,” said NATDA
Executive Director Andria Gibbon, CEM. “This year’s event was a defining moment for the industry, and the
NATDA will continue to build on the value it delivers to everyone in the industry.”
Dealer registration for the 2023 NATDA Trailer Show is slated to open late in the first quarter of 2023. To learn
