NATDA Excited to Welcome Dealers to an ‘Open’ Nashville for NATDA Trailer Show

Community, Industry News,

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – After on-site meetings to assess the state of Nashville for the 2021 NATDA Trailer Show, the North American Trailer Dealers Association is excited to kick off the trailer and truck bed industry’s trade show season with a fully ‘open’ event.

NATDA’s Director of Operations and Events, Andria Gibbon, CEM, Director of Sales, Karen Anderson, and Director of Marketing, Corey Langley, flew into Nashville in early June to meet with Music City Center and Visit Music City representatives as well as visit multiple high-traffic tourist destinations. NATDA’s representatives were informed that the city has lifted all mask requirements and that the city is overwhelmingly “back to normal.”

“Nashville’s lifting of its mask mandates is the final indication that the city is undeniably safe for our attendees,” said NATDA President Andy Ackerman. “It is important that our attendees are able to have the full-fledged Nashville experience just as they did in 2016. We are overjoyed to report that that will be the case in 2021.”

During their visit, the NATDA team visited multiple attractions within walking distance of NATDA’s contracted hotels to ensure dealers’ overall safety, including the Music City Center, multiple locations within the Broadway entertainment district, Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery, the Country Music Hall of Fame and more. While many locations had COVID-safety measures, such as additional hand sanitizing stations, all locations were opened to full capacity.
