Over 3,000 attendees and 600 dealerships gathered in Nashville, Tennessee, Aug. 31-Sept. 2 for the North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA) Trailer Show. The result shattered previous attendance and exhibit space records.
The exhibit space featured over 310 vendors and attracted participants from 11 countries.
“It was great to see how exciting and active the NATDA Trailer Show was,” said Rick McConnell, NATDA’s CEO. “I had the opportunity to speak with many exhibitors and attendees and the overall feedback message was incredibly positive. The buzz on the show floor, the Wounded Warriors keynote, the special events occurring throughout the week led to making this event special. I cannot wait for the 2023 show.”
The 2023 Trailer Show will return to Nashville at the Music City Center from Aug. 30-Sept. 1.
“The pandemic caused a myriad of challenges for businesses, and the trailer industry was not immune,” NATDA President Jennifer Hoff said. “Dealerships continue to work to overcome disrupted supply chain and employment models and more. The show offered the most comprehensive education program the NATDA has ever produced designed to address the resultant issues that impact dealerships.”
NATDA expects the 2023 show floor to sell out quickly based on the number of exhibitors committed to returning.
“We have received an unprecedented amount of recommitment from exhibitors for next year,” said NATDA Executive Director Andria Gibbon. “This year’s event was a defining moment for the industry, and the NATDA will continue to build on the value it delivers to everyone in the industry.”
Dealer registration for the 2023 NATDA Trailer Show is slated to open late in the first quarter of 2023. To learn more, visit natda.org.
