Registration Underway Now for ATA’s 2015 Philadelphia MCE Event

Registration and housing are now underway for the 2015 ATA Management Conference and Exhibition (MCE), scheduled Oct. 17 through 20 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown.

For the first time ever, MCE will kick off with an opening reception on the evening of Saturday, Oct. 17 in which all attendees are encouraged to enjoy the evening’s entertainment while networking with trucking industry colleagues.

Each year MCE proves to be the premiere meeting for trucking executives, and this four-day conference figures to be the same, featuring economic, regulatory, and business trends that will drive the success of fleets today and in the future. This year’s sessions will provide solutions to the trucking industry’s driver shortage crisis, critical insights into the economic forces driving the industry, and vital information about the major regulatory issues challenging motor carriers across the country.

We will have a host of industry experts and trucking executives exploring such important issues as:

  • Driver Recruitment: The industry needs 40,000 more drivers to meet capacity demands. Where can your company find the drivers you need?
  • Truck Design and Technology in the Future: Throughout the years, advances in truck design, equipment, and technology have been driving forces behind the success of our industry. What are the next big innovations that will transform the way fleets accomplish their work?
  • Safety Benchmarking: How much effort and money do trucking companies invest in safety? How does your company stack up?
  • Driver Retention: How can you create a company culture that improves driver retention?
  • Federal Regulations: What happens in D.C. affects every fleet. What key Federal regulations will impact your company’s operations and profitability?

In addition, MCE will deliver a one-of-a-kind opportunity to share common experiences, concerns and solutions with colleagues from across the country. It also features the largest, most comprehensive exhibition of products and services for trucking executives.

Regarding hotel reservations, ATA has been informed that multiple companies are contacting ATA attendees and exhibitors to offer a special discounted rate for MCE. You should know that ATA does not have a relationship with any of these companies and that we only work directly with the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Courtyard by Marriott Philadelphia Downtown and The Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia to provide accommodations for our attendees.
