Annual Industry Event Returns to In-Person Format in Nashville

Arlington, Virginia – The American Trucking Associations has opened registration for the industry’s premiere event – the 2021 ATA Management Conference & Exhibition – scheduled for October 23-26 at the Music City Center in Nashville.

“Our industry is powering the nation’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, and at this year’s MCE we will be gathering – in person – to celebrate all the industry has done together,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “Trucking drives our economy’s growth and our nation’s success, and I look forward to welcoming our community together to reconnect and plan for the future.”

Under the banner “Celebrating the Growth of Trucking,” the 2021 ATA MC&E promises to be one of the first times when industry leaders will be able to meet with their peers face-to-face for educational sessions, networking and to hear from government officials and executives about what the present and future hold for trucking.

“Every year, MC&E is a highlight on the trucking calendar,” said ATA Chair Sherri Garner Brumbaugh, president and CEO of Garner Transportation Group, Findlay, Ohio, “and it is such a pleasure to be planning to gather with my fellow ATA members this October in the Music City.”

This year’s event is expected to draw more than 4,000 attendees, feature 200-plus exhibitors, guest speakers from the highest levels of government and business as well as dozens of breakout education sessions, policy committees and meetings – and entertainment at the closing banquet provided by the award-winning Brothers Osborne.
