New Orleans will host the 51st annual American Truck Dealers (ATD) Convention & Expo in January.
“There’s a limited number of hotel rooms available at the Hilton Riverside, which is the ATD headquarters hotel, so we’re encouraging dealers to register as soon as possible,” said ATD Convention Chairman Steve Parker. “A benefit of staying at the Hilton Riverside is that ATD dealers, managers, spouses and relatives can attend the daily continental breakfasts and evening receptions sponsored by Eaton.”
Keynote speakers include Philip Byrd, incoming chairman of the American Trucking Associations; Lt. General Russel L. Honoré (Ret.), commander of the Joint Task Force Katrina and Global Preparedness Authority, who led the Department of Defense response to hurricanes Katrina and Rita in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana; and ATD Chairman Dick Witcher, chief executive officer of Minuteman Trucks in Walpole, Mass.
The ATD convention runs concurrently with NADA from Friday, Jan. 24 to Monday, Jan. 27 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
ATD attendees who register by Oct. 7 will receive a $150 discount off the onsite registration rate. Online registration for the ATD convention is now available. For more information or to register, visitwww.atdconvention.org.
