Sponsor Opportunities

How is NATSO Connect and Sponsorships at NATSO Connect Different?
NATSO Connect will offer experiences. Events are fleeting moments in time. Experiences, on the other hand, create connections that last long after the event is over. Experiences leave your customers and potential customers feeling inspired and mobilized to pursue real change.

And most importantly, at NATSO Connect, sponsors are invited to help create these dynamic experiences for truckstop leaders.

Still Confused on What Is the Difference Between a Traditional Conference or Trade Show and the Experience at NATSO Connect? Think of it this way:
Traditional trade shows are firecrackers – Experiences are dynamite.
Conventions are coffee beans – Experiences are a triple espresso.
Meetings are planned – Experiences are designed.
Conferences have educational sessions – Experiences have integrated curriculum and experts.

What experience do you want to create? Let’s work together to design an experience that advances your unique goals and aims. Contact Pamela Hayes to secure your sponsorship today at (703) 739-8565 or phayes@natso.com.

You can add-on sponsorship of the speaker. (Sponsorship supports NATSO.)

Keynote Speaker(s)
$10,000, five available 
What is happening in retail? What is the future of fuel sales and what are the trucking trends? We’re planning five keynote speakers focused on providing the analysis that travel plazas need to understand trends that are disrupting the industry.

Your executive will be invited to join NATSO leaders at the head table, your company will host a table, AND you can display marketing materials on all luncheon tables.  (Sponsorship supports NATSO Foundation.)
