The American Trucking Associations (ATA) Management Conference & Exhibition (MCE) brings together trucking leaders from across the country for the one can't-miss event of the year that highlights economic, regulatory, and business trends focused on driving the success of fleets today and in the future. Every year nearly 3,000 of trucking’s top decision-makers come to MCE for:
Policy Discussions – MCE attendees get to hear from prominent industry leaders, government officials, and experts on pending regulatory and political issues.
Educational Sessions – focused on the most important issues facing trucking, MCE Educational Sessions provide opportunities to brainstorm, share challenges, successes and get valuable takeaways.
Networking Opportunities — from our pre-conference kickoff to our stellar closing banquet, MCE provides you with endless opportunities to network with fellow attendees and get exposed to new ideas.
Interactive Exhibits – The ATA MCE exhibit hall features nearly 200 companies from our industry’s top manufacturers and suppliers showcasing their latest products. The exhibition provides networking opportunities and a chance for carriers and suppliers to catch up with their peers.
Hot topics on the agenda include infrastructure funding, trade, the shipper's perspective, workforce and more.
