America’s largest expedite trucking show scheduled for July 14-15

Expedite Expo, returns in 2017 with new format designed to optimize interactions between exhibitors and attendees, as well as offering ideas and opportunities. Expedite Expo will be held July 14-15, 2017, at the Lexington Convention Center in downtown Lexington, Ky.

The new format will feature a focus on workshops in the morning each day at 8-11 a.m. Friday, July 14, and 8-10 a.m. Saturday, July 15 – before the show floor opens. Expo producer On Time Media announced that the event will feature dedicated workshops for every type of person attending. The workshops will be organized by tracks – fleet owner, owner-operator, driver and motor carrier.

In addition to floor booths and workshops, as many as 25 to 30 companies that are hiring drivers could be on site at the Expo.

Another new feature at the Expo this year is Expediter of the Year award, sponsored by ExpeditersOnline.com. This contest is open to any expedite trucking industry driver, team, or owner-operator based in the United States or Canada. Anyone can nominate a driver, and nominations will be viewed and voted on by a group of trucking professionals. Nominations can be submitted through the ExpeditersOnline.com application process.

The top three nominees will be announced in early June and will be asked to be present at Expedite Expo. The top finalist will receive $500 cash for travel, two nights’ hotel accommodations provided by ExpeditersOnline.com, and an Expediter of the Year plaque.

The Expo offers free registration, convenient free parking and hotel attached to the Convention Center. For more details call 859-746-2046.
