Truckstops and Travel Plazas



At NATSO Connect, hundreds of innovative, senior-level truckstop operators and industry partners will come together to connect. For two-and-a-half days, this collaborative group will share insights and best practices in order to convert ideas into action and re-invent how truckstops do business.

This highly-focused event will combine exclusive, executive briefings with opportunities for you to gain specific guidance on how to succeed by speaking directly with experienced operators and vendor partners. NATSO Connect lets you problem-solve with key industry suppliers and your peers so you can grow your business.

What will NATSO Connect Focus on This Year?
This year, NATSO Connect will deliver the connections truckstops need for the future.

You will experience:

  • Executive briefings from experts inside and outside the industry;
  • Hand-selected vendors showcasing their new and proven products;
  • Peer-to-peer discussions to brainstorm how to apply national retail trends within travel plazas’ unique realities;
  • Collaborative problem-solving sessions geared toward growing your business; and
  • Time to continue conservations from group settings into one-on-one meetings so you can take the conversations to the next level.

Specifically, you will bring back to your business:

  • Comprehensive insights into growing your truckstop business.
  • An all-star peer network to call on for advice and solutions year round.
  • Next steps and contacts to begin implementing road-tested ideas so you can win with today’s on-the-go consumers.
  • Renewed energy and inspiration for the truckstop and travel plaza industry.
  • Fun memories are guaranteed. Plus, you may also find an appreciation for country music, a love of Goo Goo Clusters and plenty of new friends.
