TCA Contractor Meeting to Be Held with GATS

For the second consecutive year, the Truckload Carriers Association will hold its Annual Independent Contractor Division Meeting in Dallas, Sept. 9-10, 2004, in conjunction with the Great American Trucking Show.

GATS will be held Sept. 10-12 at the Dallas Convention Center. The Hyatt Regency Convention Center will be the host hotel for both meetings.

“Holding these two important industry meetings in conjunction with each other makes sense for our members,” says William Giroux, director of conventions and marketing for Washington, D.C.-based TCA. “Member response to last year’s Dallas meeting was excellent. We look forward to another successful meeting this year.”

“Fleet executives are key GATS attendees,” said Randy Schwartzenburg, GATS general manager. “This partnership makes it easy for them to participate in both events.”
