Make the Most of The NATSO Show 2015

Posted in: Truckstop Business, Leadership & Strategy


In a matter of days, industry suppliers and truckstop operators will come together under one roof for The NATSO Show 2015. Take a look at our quick tips to help you make the most of your time at the show.

Pack for temperature highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s.

Plan your time at the show in advance by viewing the full schedule here.

Start the show off right by attending The NATSO Show Kick-Off Session, sponsored by McLane and ScriptRelief, featuring former president of Trader Joe’s Doug Rauch. Be sure to stay on the show floor after the Kick-Off Session for Welcome Party from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Learn about the latest products and time-saving services during the dedicated show floor hours on Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.

Don’t forget to plan ahead to book your one-on-one consulting sessions in the Human Library.

Everyone is invited to join in the fun at the Travel Plaza Attendees Reception and Dinner on Tuesday night at Tryst Nightclub sponsored by CAT Scale, DAS Companies and Mobil Delvac. Plan for heavy hors d'oeuvres, cocktails and fun at this Las Vegas hot spot. 

Mingle with your peers and take advantage of cutting edge education as you start each day with breakfast on the show floor. Tuesday’s breakfast, sponsored by Coca Cola, will feature a keynote on driving growth through innovation. At Wednesday’s breakfast, sponsored by KSG Distributing, Ken Schmidt, former director of communications strategy for Harley-Davidson Motor Co., will teach attendees how to make some noise. Each morning S&D Coffee & Tea will provide coffee.

Take a mid-day break to learn from key industry insiders during their keynote addresses and lunch on the show floor each day. On Tuesday, Ethan Groveman of PIRA Energy Group will examine the findings of a recent report on the diesel market. The session is sponsored by CT Darnell Construction. On Wednesday, in a session sponsored by Chevron Lubricants, ATAs' chief economist Bob Costello will provide a trucking industry economic update.

Connect with us, your fellow operators and industry suppliers before the show on Facebook.
