The Third Annual Truck Driver Social Media Convention is set for October 11-13 at the venue where its 2012 edition was held, Harrah’s Resort & Convention Center in Kansas City, Mo. The “one-of-a-kind gathering,” say organizers, pulls together members of the industry who understand the “importance, impact and value of online social media as a platform to create trust and awareness, resulting in positive change among drivers and the industry.”

The 2013 even promises to “bring all the energy, enthusiasm and information it has in the past.” Registrants signing on before April 15 can take advantage of a reduced conference fee of $79.
