NATSO's 2010 annual show in Las Vegas will be held in conjunction with Barjan's annual tradeshow in March of next year.

The joint event will showcase Barjan's products designed for travel centers and retail customers to the truckstop community.

"Joining these events will deliver strategies and solutions that help our members successfully face today's operating challenges, and lead their businesses into the future," said Lisa Mullings, NATSO CEO.

The NATSO annual show draws a number of truckstop and travel center businesses, with nearly 200 exhibitors displaying everything from equipment and supplies to fuel services and food products.

Next year will be Barjan's 25th annual tradeshow, as well NATSO's 50th anniversary as an organization. The trade association was founded in Washington, D.C., in 1960, when a group of truckstop operators met to formulate plans for a new and separate organization to unite all truckstops throughout the 48 states.

"It's clear that the complex problems facings the truckstop and travel plaza industry require comprehensive solutions," said Charlie Sciandra, Barjan CEO. "We aim to provide them for NATSO's members. Barjan stands ready to meet the needs of the nation's truck stops at this important event."
