Posted By: Susan Bishop Trailer Show News,

Saint Petersburg, FL – The North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA) announced that the 2023 NATDA Trailer Show will be hosting a new event designed for female professionals in the trailer industry: The Women in Business Roundtable and Networking Event.


The Women in Business event will take place on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, from 3:00 – 5:00 pm at Music City Center in Nashville and will bring together women from all areas of the industry for two hours of idea generation, problem-solving and valuable networking, and includes light refreshments courtesy of the event co-sponsors - The Trailer Parts Outlet and ATW. The roundtable session will be moderated by Caitlin Jugert, President of The Trailer Parts Outlet, co-host of the Women in the Trailer Industry podcast, and Chair of NATDA’s Women in the Trailer Industry Committee.


“This is an exciting development for the NATDA Trailer Show,” says Andria Gibbon, NATDA Executive Director. “NATDA has been exploring the concept of programs for women in an industry that has been historically considered male.  We’ve heard from several women from dealerships, manufacturers and vendors within the industry, and there is a resounding interest in programs to help these professionals address workplace issues that are specific to them and encourage and support females in all walks of their careers. To that end, this event and our Women in the Trailer Industry Committee were created.”


The Women in Business Roundtable and Networking Event will be part of 2023 NATDA Trailer Show, which features two days of exhibits, education and events at Music City Center in Nashville. The Exhibition Hall will be open Wednesday – Thursday, August 30th – 31st. Dealership Performance Training, running August 29th-30th, will include sessions on dealership operations, sales and marketing, human resources and more, including hands-on technician training workshops.


Those interested in attending The Women in Business Roundtable and Networking Event must register for the 2023 NATDA Trailer Show and reserve tickets. For more information visit natda.org/trailer-show.
