NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, American Trucking Associations' Technology & Maintenance Council opened the doors on a sold out exhibit hall as part of the 2017 TMC Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition.
"We are thrilled to welcome more than 4,500 attendees to this exhibit hall and annual meeting," said Carl Kirk, ATA vice president of maintenance, information technology and logistics and TMC executive director. "The TMC Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition remains a premier destination for manufacturers and suppliers. Our meeting is one of the few times that key industry decision makers and technology providers can come together and demonstrate the latest advances in trucking and it remains an event that ATA and TMC's members should take pride in."
This year's exhibit features more than 400 vendors cutting across all aspects of the trucking industry, representing a total sell out of TMC's exhibit space. At the conclusion of the annual meeting, ATA and TMC will co-host their second annual Executive Leadership Forum. The grand opening of the Exhibit Hall was sponsored by ATA Featured Product provider Spireon.
"For more than six decades, TMC has worked to raise professional and technical standards for the trucking industry," said TMC Chairman Doug White, vice president of maintenance at Dunbar Armored. "This annual meeting is an important part of that – not just to see what is available in the field on the exhibit hall floor – but to have the opportunity to discuss and learn about the latest advances in truck technology in our myriad of task forces and educational sessions."
The 2017 TMC Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition, presented by premier sponsor the Allied Committee for the Trucking Industry, also called ACT1, is open through Thursday, and registration is open at the Music City Center, Nashville, Tenn.
