2023 NATDA Trailer Show Continues Record-Breaking Streak

Posted By: Susan Bishop Trailer Show News,

St. Petersburg, Fla. – The NATDA Trailer Show returned to Nashville, Tennessee, from August 30- 31 for the show’s 15th anniversary.  The event once again shattered its previous attendance and exhibit space records.

 The NATDA Trailer Show, North America’s first and only business-to-business event that connects the entire light- to medium-duty trailer industry under one roof, hosted over 4,000 individuals with approximately 700 North American dealerships in attendance. Its exhibit space occupied the most expansive square footage in the show’s history featuring over 300 exhibitors.

 “This was a particularly exciting year for us. Not only did we achieve record attendance, but we also saw unprecedented participation in our Dealership Performance Training sponsored by Dura-Haul Trailers education program of business courses, hands-on workshops and roundtables seeing full or near full classrooms,” noted Andria Gibbon, CEM, NATDA’s Executive Director.

 “Of special interest this year was our Women in Business Roundtable and Networking Event sponsored by The Trailer Parts Outlet and ATW, and the Dealership Operations Roundtable. The feedback on these sessions was incredibly positive, and we look forward to expanding on these programs next year.”

 The NATDA Trailer Show will return to Nashville again at Music City Center in 2024, from August 28-29th. The NATDA expects the show floor to sell out quickly based on the number of already committed exhibitors returning.

 “Many exhibitors have commented that the 2023 show was a remarkably successful and profitable one. As a result, we are seeing a lot of commitment for next year’s show,” notes Rick McConnell, NATDA Chief Executive Officer. “We sold out of exhibit square footage early for the 2023 show and things appear to be on track for a repeat performance.  The entire NATDA team is excited for 2024 and is committed to delivering the absolute best experience in the industry.”
