The 1st Annual Truck Driver Social Media Convention was well received among drivers and driver supporters, as the final attendee count for both reservations and walk-in’s, reached a total of 178.
I would like to thank all of those who attended and supported the event and I will be updating the Trucking Social Media website within the next several days.
The 2011 event will have its own page, including a photo and video gallery as I update the website to prepare for future conventions.
Thanks again for everyone’s support and your efforts in attending this first-ever event for the trucking industry.
Our goals to unite, honor, inform, network, socialize, and give voice to the professional driver was accomplished. Many friendships were made, others were strengthened. All-in-all the most common statement made during the event was, “The industry has needed this for a long time.”
The evening concluded with some of the best entertainment around as Tony Justice and his Nashville band cranked out hit after hit. John DiBattista also opened up during dinner with a more mellow side, ending his set with his rendition of “Say A Prayer For Jason” from the Big Rigs music CD.
The First Annual Truck Driver Social Media Convention met and exceeded all expectations. Many are looking forward to next year and others have already committed to sponsorship. Details for the 2012 convention will be announced in June.
Thank you to everyone who has made this all possible: speakers, special guests, sponsors, attendees, and to eveyone who has supported us and the goals that were accomplished.
