NATDA ANNOUNCES A NEW SCHEDULE AND EXTENDED EXPO HALL HOURS FOR THE 2023 NATDA TRAILER SHOW
St. Petersburg, Fla.– The North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA), a premier organization dedicated to serving the light and medium-duty trailer industry, has announced dates and a new schedule for the 2023 NADTA Trailer Show. The event returns to Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee, from Wednesday, August 30th- Thursday, August 31st, with tailored events beginning on Tuesday, August 29th.
The event begins the afternoon of Tuesday, August 29th, with Dealership Performance Training featuring hands-on service workshops. On the same day, roundtables and panel sessions, and an evening networking hour will take place for those arriving in Nashville early. Wednesday morning of August 30th sees more Dealership Performance Training with formal classes and additional technical workshops beginning at 8:00 am, with the Expo Hall opening from 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm on the same day. The day will conclude with networking events on the show floor.
On Thursday, the Expo Hall will open at 9:00 am and will be open until the show closes at 5:00 pm. Fun giveaways, exhibitor and new product award announcements, and the Ultimate Prize Package (introduced in 2022) will all be presented towards the end of the day on Thursday. On Thursday night, the fun will continue with sponsored after-hour events.
"The decision to adjust the show to a full two-day schedule came after receiving feedback from our attending dealerships, exhibitors, and sponsors," says Andria Gibbon, CEM, Executive Director of NATDA. "We've listened to that feedback and are happy to deliver the new schedule that extends the Expo Hall Hours and reduces the number of days dealers are away from their dealerships. And provides interactive sessions and a chance for additional networking for those who come in early on Tuesday! We plan to ensure that the NATDA Trailer Show continues to deliver everything the industry expects from the event."
Attendees and exhibitors will also be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of Music City, including world-class dining and entertainment options, as well as take advantage of discounted hotel rates at a range of hotels included in the NATDA Trailer Show's room block. NATDA Dealer members also receive a free night's room stay with a valid membership.
Potential exhibitors should contact Karen Anderson at 727-360-0304 x105 to secure booth space.
