TMC Opens Exhibit Hall During 2022 Annual Meeting
Industry Executives Kick Off Leading Trucking Technology Event
Orlando, Florida – Today, American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council opened the exhibit hall at the council’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition.
“We are pleased to welcome in-person more than 4,500 attendees to this exhibit hall and annual meeting,” said Robert Braswell, TMC executive director. “This event is one of the few times that key industry decision makers and technology providers come together to review the latest developments in truck technology – including safety, fuel efficiency and more. It is an event that ATA and TMC’s members should take pride in.”
This year’s exhibit features approximately 350 vendors spanning nearly 500,000 square feet, and includes the Council’s Electric & Automated Vehicle Pavilion and Electric Vehicle Presentation Theatre showcasing leading-edge technologies for this emerging industry segment. The Exhibit Grand Opening is sponsored by Inland Trailer.
“With its more than 65 years of experience, TMC continues to promote professional and develop technical standards for the trucking industry,” said TMC General Chairman and Treasurer Stacy Earnhardt, vice president of asset management and specialized services for Best Logistics Group. “The Council’s in-person annual meeting and exhibition is a critical part of these ongoing efforts. Being able to see technology in practice on the exhibit hall floor and discussing face-to-face the latest advances in truck technology with the industry’s top experts represents a priceless opportunity.”
TMC’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition, presented by premier sponsor the Allied Committee for the Trucking Industry, ACT1, is open through Thursday, and registration is open at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
“Our industry is facing nothing short of a technological revolution. From the drive to deploy more electric vehicles, and reduce emissions – including, as we saw earlier today, NOx, to advancements in automated vehicle technology, there has never been a time when technology advances promise to deliver so much for our industry,” ATA President and CEO Chris Spear said. “The possibilities and promise of these technologies will shape our industry for decades to come, and TMC will be at the forefront of those discussions. This meeting comes at a critical time for trucking as we look for solutions to how we will power our trucks, what sorts of safety and other technologies will be part of our lives in the coming years and how we will ensure that there are enough men and women with the expertise to keep those trucks on the road. The answers to those questions will be found here, with TMC, in your study groups and task forces, and on this sold out exhibit hall floor.”
By providing leadership support and opportunities to collaborate, TMC helps members develop the industry’s best practices that address the critical truck technology and maintenance issues that have the greatest impact on truck fleets. For more than 60 years, TMC’s member-driven Recommended Maintenance and Engineering Practices have been setting the standards that help trucking companies specify and maintain their fleets more effectively.
