June 2011 Industry Focus
Karl Rove, former deputy chief of staff and senior advisor to President George W. Bush, will share his political insights with attendees during the second-annual Commercial Vehicle Outlook Conference, Aug. 24-25, 2011 at the Dallas Convention Center.
Known as “The Architect” of President Bush’s 2000 and 2004 campaigns, Rove is described by author and columnist Michael Barone in U.S. News & World Report as “…unique…no Presidential appointee has ever had such a strong influence on politics and policy, and none is likely to do so again anytime soon.”
Rove is a Fox News contributor, writes a weekly op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, is a Newsweek columnist, and is the author of the book Courage and Consequence, which chronicles his role in the Bush campaigns and White House. Rove will provide an inside look at Washington politics and the 2012 Presidential campaign.
Building on the momentum of last year’s inaugural conference — which attracted more than 350 industry leaders from all segments of trucking — this year’s Commercial Vehicle Outlook Conference promises to be even more successful.
The 2011 CVOC will again feature compelling presentations on the industry’s most critical issues, including:
• Outlook for freight, truck buying and parts and service activity
• The future truck: off-shore competition, telematics, alternative fuels and more
• How fleets are thriving in a changing environment: the driver shortage, rising fuel and equipment costs and increasing regulation
• An update on the major regulatory and legislative issues affecting OEMs, suppliers, dealers and carriers
