San Antonio, Texas, April 14, 2021 -- The Technology Expo at the 2021 Truck Renting and Leasing Association's (TRALA) Annual Meeting displayed the latest in safety and efficiency technologies to both members at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country and to its virtual attendees.
This is the fourth year TRALA has moved to a two-day format for the Expo. The two-day format had both in-person and virtual hours allowing for more networking and relationship-building opportunities between TRALA regular members and suppliers. Suppliers unable to travel this year were afforded the ability to hold virtual meetings with TRALA members using Cvent's Attendee Hub in which participants could meet through Zoom.
"The Technology Expo was a new format for everyone this year given the pandemic, but participation from both attendees and exhibitors was exceptional," said TRALA President and CEO, Jake Jacoby. "Being able to connect our members with such a wide variety of excellent industry suppliers is part of what makes TRALA special and brings value to all involved."
The two-day format started with a reception on the Expo floor on Tuesday night, sponsored by Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. The Expo concluded on Wednesday morning with breakfast and additional networking opportunities.
