Attendees at The 2022 NATDA Trailer Show

The 2022 NATDA Trailer Show is not open to the public. What does that mean exactly? Well, it means that everyone entering the Music City Center exhibit hall will be verified, industry-relevant and interested in what’s going on. Attendees can be divided up into two categories:

  • Dealership owners and staff; this includes trailer dealers and any operating dealer in a similar category or industry, such as RV, auto, marine, power sports, heavy equipment, and agricultural machinery.
  • Trailer/Truck bed manufacturers and suppliers; anyone from this category must be a 2022 NATDA Member. 

If you’re curious whether your brand will be popular, take a look at the trailer categories attendees are interested in. If your brand fits in one of these categories, you’ll want to exhibit at The 2022 NATDA Show:

  • ATV
  • Boat
  • Car Hauler
  • Cargo
  • Concession
  • Dump
  • Enclosed
  • Fifth-wheel
  • Flat Bed
  • Gooseneck

  • Livestock
  • Living Quarter
  • Motorsports
  • Overland

In the past, exhibitors have benefited greatly from the NATDA show crowd, especially since attendees must be NATDA members or verified business owners. You’ll need to know how to set up your booth to take full advantage of this unique opportunity.

Exhibiting at The 2022 NATDA Trailer Show 

Success at The 2022 NATDA Trailer Show depends on you and your exhibit team’s ability to catch the eye of everyone browsing the one-day-only tradeshow. Here are a few things you can do to make sure your booth draws a crowd:

  • Pick the focal point, and product/service.
    1. Which of your products best fit attendees needs?
    2. Do you have any new products, services or technologies that offer solutions to the attendee? 
    3. How can you let attendees experience these new things?
    4. Design a marketing/content campaign around what’s relevant and what’s new. 
  1. Choose the right booth size for your message.
    1. 10’ x 10’: ideal for a single product or service, or a small line of products. You have room for multiple display cases, 3D graphic wall, custom light display and flooring, and one seating configuration.
    2. 10 x 20: good solution for those showing a variety of products in the booth. It has 20 feet of graphic back wall, multiple seating configurations for demonstrations and education, in addition to custom light and flooring that come standard with our exhibit rentals.
    3. 20 x 20: Exhibit Experience usually recommends 20’ x 20’ booths, as these offer demonstration space, enclosures for private viewing, and dozens of other configuration options. However, we understand that many companies have limited budgets this year.
  2. Decide if you will rent or DIY your booth.
    1. Experience is key when it comes to standing out at large-scale tradeshows. 
    2. Local tradeshow exhibit rentals for the upcoming 2022 NATDA Trailer Show will help you go that extra mile. 
  3. Design a memorable in-booth experience
    1. No matter the size, your booth should tell a seamless brand story. 
    2. Pro Tip: include an interactive experience for your booth visitors.
  4. Build and train the right team. 
    1. Having the right booth staff is just as important as having the right design. 
    2. Include a mix of people from sales, technical, customer service and management.
  5. Ditch the hard sell. 
    1. Instead of trying to get sales, focus instead on how your products or services solve a problem.
  6. Create an itinerary with the networking and social events, educational sessions, and other activities you want to attend. This way you and your team will know when you’ll be at the booth. 
  7. Follow up. Use the travel time home to send follow-up emails to thank visitors for their time and remind them about your company.
