NATDA Reports ‘Business Up’ for Trade Show
The North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA) held its annual trade show and convention to Dallas Sept. 8-10 at the Dallas Convention Center, drawing attendees from 48 states and six Canadian provinces that represented trailer dealers, manufacturers and industry vendors.
“This year’s show was a huge success on the buying front,” said NATDA President Andy Ackerman in a press release.
“While attendance was slightly higher than in 2010, business was way up, particularly for companies such as GE Capital, which wrote more than $4 million in sales throughout the three days in Dallas,” said Ackerman. “Dealers on hand this year had more education opportunities than in the past while also getting opportunities to network with each other at our round-table sessions and welcome party.”
“Although we were new to the NATDA show, we were more than pleased with the exposure and the quality of the dealers that attended. The NATDA show is now a permanent addition to our trade show budget,” said Karl Sjoberg, with Road Dog Trailers.
