2018 Heavy Duty Trucking Exchange Applications Now Open

October 26, 2017

Applications are now open for a spot at next year’s Heavy Duty Trucking Exchange networking and education event, being held May 9-11, 2018, at the Scottsdale resort at McCormick Ranch outside Phoenix, Arizona.

Heavy Duty Trucking Exchange brings together the innovative fleet executives in the heavy-duty market with top suppliers to help the development of business relationships. HDTX is a “hosted buyer event,” a concept brought to the U.S. from Europe, which allows buyers and sellers to get together in an intimate environment for structured networking, educational sessions, and social activities.

The event is designed so that fleets can exchange information, explore ideas, extend networks with each other and with suppliers. Heavy Duty Trucking magazine editors will also be on hand.

A highlight is the presentation of HDT’s Truck Fleet Innovators award and a panel discussion with the 2018 honorees, moderated by one of HDT's editors.

Every HDTX participant receives a custom-made, personalized agenda that offers:

  • Insights and advice from leaders in the industry
  • Interactive roundtable discussions with industry peers
  • Dynamic group presentation from industry suppliers
  • Custom one-on-one consultation with industry suppliers
  • Unique, engaging and memorable social functions
  • Solutions to your current and future challenges

No more than 50 fleet applicants will be offered a hosted trip to attend the 2018 HDTX, which includes round-trip airfare to the venue, local airport transfers to and from the venue, all scheduled meals, and receptions. So interested fleets are urged to get their applications in as soon as possible.
