NATSO Announces Priorities for Annual Show, Heads to Florida in 2019

Monday, August 27, 2018

In today’s rapidly changing business and retail environment, connections and collaboration are crucial for identifying trends, seizing new opportunities and staying ahead of the curve. That is why NATSO has selected the theme “Connections for the Future” for its annual meeting, NATSO Connect 2019.

Early next year, hundreds of innovative truckstop operators and industry partners will come together at NATSO Connect, Feb. 10-13, at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club in Orlando, Fla.

The priorities for the 2019 event include an analysis of highly relevant trends, strategies for adapting to the trends disrupting the industry and tools for improved operational performance.

NATSO Connect 2019 attendees will leave armed with the ability to:

  • Connect big trends with the plans they need to secure their business’s future;
  • Build the support system of people required to create the future; and
  • Connect with the products and partnerships necessary to meet changing customer demands.

NATSO’s highly-focused annual meeting combines exclusive, executive briefings with opportunities for operators to gain specific guidance on how to succeed by speaking directly with experienced operators and vendor partners. NATSO Connect also creates opportunities for operators to problem-solve with key industry suppliers and their peers so they can grow their business.

“For two-and-a-half days, key decision makers in the truckstop and travel plaza industry join together with industry suppliers, retail thought leaders and experts in the trucking industry to share the insights and best practices that will help them meet their short- and long-term goals,” said Pamela Hayes, vice president of business development for NATSO.

The show is ideal for travel plaza or truckstop owners, operators, managers, buyers and staff who want to increase their industry knowledge, gain business intelligence and see new products. Those within the industry should save the date now and plan to attend The NATSO Show 2019, Feb. 10-13.
