Booths at the 2014 TMC Annual Meeting.

The American Trucking Association’s Technology and Maintenance Council is holding its Annual Meeting from Feb. 16-19 at the Music City Center in Nashville. This year’s event will be themed “Fueling the Future."

The Annual Meeting will include discussions on fuel economy standards, alternate fuels, asset utilization and tire deployment strategies. It will also cover maintenance practices to improve fleet efficiency and profitability.

In conjunction with the Annual Meeting, TMC will also host a Transportation Technology Exhibition with nearly 400 exhibitors showcasing the latest medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, specialty, and alternative-fueled vehicles. There will also be exhibitors showing components, safety products, information technology and services.

“Important information on the latest in technology, regulatory news, industry best practices and the top trucking show of the year all come together at one venue,” said Carl Kirk, TMC executive director. “TMC’s technical sessions and exhibit can help equip fleet managers with the knowledge that they need to be more effective and more competitive.”

The first general session will take place on Monday and will feature the TMC’s Executive Director’s Report with insights and information on the trucking industry. A special reception will be held on Sunday, prior to the event’s opening for first-time attendees at the Omni Nashville Hotel in the Legends Ballroom.

Heavy Duty Trucking Magazine will be there at the event covering any and all important announcements, so look for more coverage from the show floor. For more information on the event, click here.
