Deadline for submissions: Webinar submissions are accepted throughout the year for programs that will take place in the next two-six months.

Annual Convention

The Annual Convention brings together carriers and industry suppliers from across North America for three days of informative general sessions and timely workshops. The convention provides a variety of workshops on specific issues and topics germane to the trucking industry and the companies that support it. Approximately 1,200 trucking professionals are expected to attend the 2016 convention, March 6-9 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Workshops are generally 75 minutes long and they average 50 attendees. 

Annual Convention workshop submissions will be reviewed through December 18, 2015, and notification of acceptance status will be provided in January 2016.
