Natda Trailer Show Above Shot

Sept. 14, 2023
After reporting another record-breaking year, the NATDA is already planning for 2024's Trailer Show

The NATDA Trailer Show returned to Nashville, Tennessee, from August 30- 31 for the show’s 15th anniversary. The event once again shattered its previous attendance and exhibit space records.

The NATDA Trailer Show, North America’s business-to-business event that connects the light- to medium-duty trailer industry under one roof, hosted over 4,000 individuals with approximately 700 North American dealerships in attendance. Its exhibit space occupied the most expansive square footage in the show’s history, featuring over 300 exhibitors.

“This was a particularly exciting year for us,” said Andria Gibbon, CEM, NATDA’s executive director. “Not only did we achieve record attendance, but we also saw unprecedented participation in our Dealership Performance Training sponsored by Dura-Haul Trailers education program of business courses, hands-on workshops, and roundtables seeing full or near full classrooms.”

In addition, Gibbons said in a release that the show’s Women in Business Roundtable and Networking Event, sponsored by The Trailer Parts Outlet and ATW, and the Dealership Operations Roundtable received particularly positive feedback, and thus will be expanded upon next year.

The NATDA Trailer Show will return to Nashville again at Music City Center in 2024, from August 28-29th. The NATDA expects the show floor to sell out quickly based on the number of already committed exhibitors returning.

“We are seeing a lot of commitment for next year’s show,” said Rick McConell, NATDA CEO. “We sold out of exhibit square footage early for the 2023 show and things appear to be on track for a repeat performance. The entire NATDA team is excited for 2024 and is committed to delivering the absolute best experience in the industry.”
