The Great American Truck Show – truly one of the best times you can have with thousands of other truckers all around you. Are you going to GATS this year?
Or is your IFTA going to stop you from going to GATS?
Did you have to skip a load to do the filing so you don’t have any extra cash?
Are your finances tight because you may have overpaid your IFTA taxes?
I feel your pain. Been there, done that for too many years.
The Value of Attending the Great American Truck Show (GATS)
You know you’re going to have a good time. How could you not? These are your people. It’s such a relief to not have to explain what the IFTA is, or why it’s smarter to take one route over the other. You’ll see plenty of great displays and get new ideas about how to improve your life on the road.
But possibly the best reason to attend GATS is to get to know other people. You never know who you’ll meet at a conference. It may be a person whose brokerage gets a regular lane and is looking for a trucker with your type of trailer. Or it could be a potential partner for a large load that will take 2 trucks to handle. Or a company that wants you to become their driver.
The flip side is also true. That woman sitting at the table may be considering buying his first truck. That man beside you at the display might need your recommendation before he buys that piece of equipment.
We all help each other at GATS. That’s the value at a conference – the people.
