NATDA Announces new trailer technology and innovation expo

The inaugural Trailer Tech Expo is slated for February 25-27, 2025 in Reno, Nevada.

The North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA) has announced a new event: the Trailer Tech Expo, which is scheduled to take place at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center in Reno, NV, Feb. 25-27, 2025. NATDA says the event will highlight the latest in trailer technology and hands-on technical training for light-to-medium duty trailer dealership owners and staff.

NADTA adds that the event will include social and networking events, including an award ceremony that will recognize the most pioneering dealers, industry vendors and manufacturers.

“We are extremely pleased to be able to offer another event designed to elevate dealer performance,” says Andria Gibbon, NATDA executive director. “While our August event, the NATDA Trailer Show, focuses on all aspects of the trailer industry, this new event in February is strictly focused on technology and innovation and offers increased opportunities for hands-on experience in the maintenance and repair of mechanical, hydraulic and electronic enhancements to trailer design.”

“This event will be a unique opportunity for NATDA to not only recognize innovation in our industry, but also to expand our technical education programming by developing the first accreditation program for trailer technicians,” adds Rick McConnell, NATDA chief executive officer.

NATDA says programming for the event is underway, and expects to release more details in the coming months.
