The North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA) reports its NATDA Trailer Show has been named to the annual The Next 50 list of fastest growing trade shows by Trade Show Executive magazine.
NATDA, led by Executive Director Andria Gibbon, is named to The Next 50 list in three categories: exhibit square footage, exhibiting companies, and total attendance. This honor recognizes NATDA’s innovation and success at bringing together manufacturers, vendors and dealerships from the light- to medium-duty trailer industry together at a single event designed to provide business opportunities, networking and education to support professionals working in this niche industry.
Celebrating its 15th year in operation this year, the 2023 NATDA Trailer Show will be in Nashville in August.
“To have the NATDA Trailer Show named to the Trade Show Executive’s The Next 50 list for the first time is an exciting honor for our team and is a fitting recognition of our latest record-breaking event in 2022,” says Gibbon. “The trailer industry has and continues to overcome hurdles from the economic climate of the last few years, and the fact that the NATDA Trailer Show continues to act a hub for commerce and growth for industry professionals speaks to the passion and dedication of our staff and leadership who devote themselves to delivering a show that is highly meaningful to our members and impactful for our industry. This recognition inspires us to keep raising the bar for this event.”
Trade Show Executive’s The Fastest 50 and The Next 50 lists recognize the fastest-growing shows in each category of metrics tracked by TSE’s Research Department and through submissions. The Fastest 50 represents the fastest growing shows and The Next 50 is the group of shows that were right on the heels of the Fastest 50 but did not crack the top 50.
