Another Year is underway as the 2012 Truck Driver Social Media Convention “Buzz” continues to spread.
The era of Social Media has arrived and this years’ convention will again prove to be informing and exciting as we extend the event to 2 days, October 27th and 28th, at Harrah’s Hotel in North Kansas City, MO.
We will also be adding a Welcome Reception on Friday evening, October 26th.
The theme this year is the “Circle of Trust” as we gather those within the industry who would like to be a part of providing and sharing quality information, opinions, products, and services through honesty, transparency, and integrity.
By doing so, the trucking social media convention will ensure that attendees are secure, knowing that those sponsoring, presenting, and participating will be an elite group who believe that ethics are a number one priority and are a pre requisite for “raising the standards of the trucking industry”
Information shared during this event will be valuable and useful and once again, we will all unite and honor professional drivers. Besides providing quality information, attendees will again be approaching the podium and will have an opportunity to have their voices HEARD. Participants in the open forum can either ask questions to the panel or discuss issues that concern them most.
There will also be another panel, knowledgeable within the field of social media, who will share their knowledge, experience, and expertise as we have a question and answer session. People on the panel will also include those within the trucking industry. Participants on the panel will be announced later this month and displayed on the Trucking Social Media Website, along with the schedule of events for the 2 day convention.
Topics and Speakers this year will include:
- Human Trafficking Awareness and Social Media- Kylla Leeburg
- Trucking Employment Law- Paul Taylor
- CDL Training and the Truck Driver Shortage- Richard Wilson
- Truck Driver Health- Rick Ash
- Trucking Regulations- To be announced
- Trucking Social Media- To be announced
So far our Sponsors this year include:
- Truck Drivers Money Saving Tips
- Transport Watch
- KC Trucker
- AllenAyers Productions
- Trans Products
Plan on experiencing the “Making a Difference Award”, which was presented to Hope Rivenburg last year for her tireless efforts regarding the need for more safe truck parking and the passing of “Jason’s Law” in the House Transportation Bill. The award this year will be named the “Jason Rivenburg Award” and will be presented to the winner by Hope Rivenburg.
If you know someone who you believe has made a difference, you have 2 more weeks to nominate them!
Last year we were also proud to present a Special Recognition Award to Kylla Leeburg of Truckers Against Trafficking for her extraordinary efforts and accomplishments against the atrocities of human trafficking. Kylla is this years speaker on Human Trafficking and will also be part of the Social Media Panel because of her vast knowledge in Social Media.
Thousands of dollars in prizes will be given away and the event will once again be videotaped for an available 2 hour CD, interviews, and YouTube videos on the Trucking Social Media Channel.
TRUCK PARKING is available.
Just as last year, the convention is limited to 500. This year however we are adding something new!
The first 100 registrants and sponsors will be offered free access to the Friday Night Welcome Reception at the famous Voo Doo Lounge at Harrah’s. Harrah’s is also providing us a reduced rate for a limited block of hotel rooms.
The Registration for this 2 day event, including meals and snacks, quality speakers, open forum, social media forum, prizes and awards is $99.00. Register now before tickets are sold out, you will not want to miss this event. Just ask some of those who attended last year! TESTIMONIALS
