NATSO is excited to announce its annual in-person industry meeting next year, NATSO Connect, scheduled to take place March 7-10, 2023 at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in the Dallas Metropolitan Area.
NATSO Connect is the annual meeting of truckstop and travel center operators who represent buying power for over 16,000 fuel stations. The event features hundreds of truckstop and travel center operators as well as industry partners coming together for face-to-face learning and networking to help them identify trends and maximize profit margins.
New for this year’s conference are dedicated sections for vendors specializing in alternative fuels, technology, and innovation. The event also features new first-night activities including an invitation only, dedicated dinner for new truckstop and travel center members and a welcome and thank you reception for vendors. The event 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 businesses. The conference includes retail study tours, a great ideas workshop, a government affairs meeting, and the NATSO Foundation Full House Fundraiser.
“We’re excited to bring the NATSO Connect show to Texas and to put a greater emphasis on our technology, innovation, and alternative fuel vendors,” said Pamela Hayes, Vice President of Business Development for NATSO. “The industry is experiencing tremendous growth and we’re happy to showcase both existing operators and the many new vendors looking to engage with our operators.”
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 make plans to attend NATSO Connect 2023. Although events like the retail study tours are included with registration, certain events always reach capacity and are limited and available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
