Convention in Texas held for trucking industry managers and owners
Fleet management owners may benefit from collaborating with others in the industry at conventions that highlight the changes and innovations to trucking companies. This October, the American Trucking Association (ATA) will present its annual Management Conference and Exhibition (MC&E) in Grapevine, Texas, reports the Dallas Business Journal.
Bill Graves, ATA president, says he looks forward to the positive effect that the event will bring.
"Our industry faces numerous challenges - both political and economic - after the Great Recession," he told the news source. "By coming together at MC&E, attendees will be putting themselves in a position to succeed."
According to the Commercial Carrier Journal, there will be various demonstrations and forums for business owners and managers to participate in the program. Stuart Varney of the Fox Business Channel plans to host a group of panelists to discuss what the economy means to the trucking industry. There will also be a luncheon with guests of the National Republican Congressional Committee.
The convention will take place at the Gaylord Texan resort for four days, starting October 15th.
