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 2024 NADTA Trailer Show schedule. The event returns to Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee, from Wednesday, August 28th to Thursday, August 29th, with education and tailored events beginning on Tuesday, August 27th.


The event begins the morning of Tuesday, August 27th, with Dealership Performance Training featuring hands-on technician training from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm, and educational sessions – including seminars, panels, and roundtables –between 10:00 am – 6:00 pm. The curriculum will include the return of the Dealer Operations and Women in Business Roundtables. New this year, Dealership Performance training will host "Lunch and Learn" sessions. These ticketed events will include a boxed lunch for a small fee. 


On the evening of Tuesday, August 27th, NATDA will host a NEW event: a Trailer Show Welcome Party from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. The party will be open to all NATDA Trailer Show participants, including dealer attendees, their guests, and exhibitors. The Welcome Party replaces the annual Dealer Welcome and Happy Hour. The two-hour event seeks to bring together the entire industry for an exciting kick-off to NATDA's flagship event. 


"The decision to turn the Dealer Welcome and Happy Hour into an extended Welcome Party for everyone was made after listening to feedback from our dealers and exhibitors," says Andria Gibbon, CEM, Executive Director of NATDA. "We feel that this new event more accurately reflects the spirit and mission of the show, which is to foster connections within the trailer industry as a whole."


The 2024 NATDA Trailer show will offer 12 hours of exhibits. The Expo Hall will open with its annual processional and singing of the National Anthem on Wednesday, August 28th, at 9:30 am and will be open until 5:30 pm.
