For the first time in NATM history, the Association is excited to invite trailer dealers to the 33rd Annual NATM Convention & Trade Show in Nashville, Tenn. Feb. 23-25, 2021!
NATM has been committed to trailer safety for more than 30 years. While NATM has long worked with trailer manufacturers, industry suppliers, and service providers, trailer safety can only be improved through dealer interaction and consumer education. Expanding the Association’s base to include dealer affiliates and now allowing dealers to attend the Annual Convention & Trade Show is the logical next step to advancing the mission of NATM.
The NATM Convention & Trade Show is the annual trade show for the light- and medium-duty trailer industry. With more than 1,000 trailer manufacturer and supplier attendees per year and growing, this "must attend" event provides education, networking and communication for those in the industry. The 2020 soldout trade show boasted over 200 exhibiting companies, with 37 new exhibitors, which gave attendees a variety of products and services to view. The show also included attendees from over 100 trailer manufacturers companies from across North America.
Dealer attendees will have the opportunity to participate in all workshops and technical forums, along with dealer-centered educational sessions. Plan to attend the trade show, which will house 298 booths and an opportunity to network with manufacturers and distributors! Of course, don’t forget the awards luncheon – join your industry peers for a plated lunch and perhaps be the first ever dealer to win an award from NATM. Special networking events will provide the opportunity to mingle with fellow industry peers, trailer manufacturers, and NATM Board Members and staff while in Music City.
NATM is thrilled to involve dealers at the annual show! The Association’s purpose is to open up lines of communication, increase trailer safety awareness, and provide dealers with the education and information they have long requested from NATM. NATM has worked diligently with committees, trailer manufacturers, industry suppliers, and dealers to create a path of inclusion for dealers. NATM can’t wait for you to see what they have planned!
NATM will be offering a “New Dealer Promotion” to help offset costs for dealers attending the show. Companies can sign up for NATM’s Dealer Affiliate Program for just $150 and are then eligible for two complimentary registrations and two free hotel room nights while available! The NATM Dealer Affiliate program is an opportunity to unify the trailer industry in an effort to improve trailer safety and gain access to resources and information previously only available to trailer manufacturers and industry suppliers. To read more about the Dealer Affiliate Program, visit NATM.com/dealers. Non-affiliate dealers can register to attend for $300.
