GATS Open for Registration

The annual Great American Trucking Show will be held Aug. 23-25 in Dallas, Texas, at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. Truckers and other interested parties can now register for free online.

The Great American Trucking Show is an interactive public convention of trucking professionals. More than 500 exhibitors meet at GATS, representing truck, trailer, engine, component and parts manufacturers, among many others. GATS exists to create an interactive, energizing environment entirely focused on trucking’s improvement.

GATS will feature the Pride & Polish truck show, the premier truck beauty championship series, “recognizing creativity, excellence and dedication to the toughest profession you’ll ever love. Participating trucks are cleaned and polished, accessorized and customized, front to back and bumper to bumper.” GATS will also have the Trucker Talent Search sing-off competition finale, Partners in Business seminars, many exhibitors and, as in previous years, there will also be a Health Pavilion offering screenings for attendees. There will also be a Recruiting Pavilion.

Drivers who want to bring their trucks to the show will be able to park at the TA-Petro Truck Parking Community, with 36 acres of free truck parking conveniently located at the Cotton Bowl’s Fair Park. The Community offers regular shuttles to and from the convention center, food vendors, showers, portable restrooms and a worship service on Sunday.

Those interested in attending the 2018 Great American Trucking Show can register for free online or pay $10 if registering in person.
