By Steve Bassett, Chairman, American Truck Dealers

There are some new and exciting changes coming to ATD’s annual Show. The most important change for our members to note is that the ATD Show will not be held in 2021. Instead, mark your calendars for our best and brightest event to return in 2022 in Las Vegas in conjunction with the annual NADA Show.

This change in our Show schedule has been under consideration for some time. ATD has a proud history that dates back to 1970. We are proud to host the industry event that brings truck dealers from every state together, in one city every year. ATD’s overall mission for the Show is to be proactive and take actions that will result in an event that is better and more impactful than ever. We will take the time to assess our current offerings and plan a Show that optimally suits the needs of America’s truck dealers.

As your ATD Chairman, I’m proud that our association will continue to strive for the highest value for our members, and to prepare the next generation of truck dealers and managers for the complex environment ahead. We want all dealers to be confident that the ATD Show will always be an inspiring and renowned event that is worth your valuable time away from your home and business.

With that said, I urge all ATD members to continue planning for New Orleans, as the 2021 NADA Show will move forward without delay on Jan. 21-24. And as always, all ATD members are enthusiastically invited to attend the NADA Show and take full advantage of everything NADA has to offer including its educational workshop sessions, action-packed exhibit hall, and general sessions with inspiring keynote speakers.

After this time of careful assessment and thoughtful planning, the ATD team and I anticipate a remarkable Show that returns with a bang and is responsive to the business climate in today’s commercial truck industry. The ATD Show will go on…in 2022.

In the meantime, I wish you, your families, and employees a safe and healthy return to work. And I look forward to seeing you at the 2021 NADA Show!
