Sprinkled throughout the summer we will host networking opportunities so you can keep building a support system of peers and vendors. While NATSO CONNECTions will look much different than what we do in person, it will keep what makes NATSO Connect great — time for truckstop and travel center owners and operators and their vendors to learn from each other. While we can’t wait to join with industry friends again in person, the good news is we’re all connecting today in new ways. We’re online, with video streaming, face-to-face chats, and group interactions that, just a year ago, we didn’t know how to do and we are excited to do it with you.
