We’re just weeks from the biggest industry event of the fall, the 2022 CD/NLA Show. Not only are we thrilled to bring the show back to the Northeast this November 13-16, but we couldn’t be more excited to return to the banks on the Potomac at the beautiful Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center. Conveniently located just outside of D.C., our all-under-one-roof host property is right in the heart of the thriving National Harbor.
While we have four days of wall-to-wall networking, a bustling show floor, and electric nightlife planned for you, the heart of the CD/NLA Show remains our on-point and timely educational programming. Our Show Education Committee has been whittling down the list of topics for months now for the most well-rounded and timely spate of professional development around.
At our March Vegas Show and June Executive Retreat, attendees loved our highly interactive roundtables—especially the immediate feedback from what their industry colleagues are putting into practice—so we’ve amped up the game with daily sessions to get your blood pumping and primed for the rest of the day’s lineup. Designed to appeal to operators of all sizes and specialties, these three roundtable sessions will allow you to mix it up with your peers and gain good insights that are battle-tested and industry approved.
On Monday, we’ll kick it off at 8:00am for Extending the Life of Your Assets. It’s no secret that operators have had to keep their metal a little longer than usual, so come hear what your peers are doing to keep the wheels turning on equipment that normally would have been turned over by now—and be sure to share your own ideas for maintenance of older equipment.
Then on Tuesday morning at 8:30am, join us for Take the Worry Out of Your Insurance Renewal to explore tips and best practices for lowering your insurance premiums (with some help from the industry’s insurance professionals). This advice-oriented hybrid session will give you the opportunity to speak directly with reps of several of the largest insurance companies as well your fellow operators on how to best prepare for your renewals, keep your premiums reasonable, and more. This is one area where you can’t afford to cut corners.
Finally on Wednesday at 8:30am, Automation: How Operators Are Doing More With Less will offer discussion amongst peers on how you can use automation and technology to your advantage—without breaking the bank. Staffing remains one of the biggest challenges for most businesses this year, so operators will reveal how they are making it work with fewer employees, man-hours, and less paper pushing for a streamlined and efficient operation.
For our educational sessions, we’ve assembled a rock-star roster of topics and expert speakers from the industry and business world for the rest of our educational program. We’ll take a deep dive at your finances with Managing Finances With the Influx of Newfound Revenue as well as sales and marketing with Utilizing Your LinkedIn Account to Attract New Clientele, Creating and Controlling Your Networking Relationships, and Retail Sales: Marketing and Maximizing Your Smaller Metal. If shoring up your operations is in order, you won’t want to miss Managing and Integrating Remote Workers, Welcome to the New World of Obtaining a CDL, and FMCSA Update: What to Expect for 2023. Looking for some leadership advice? Also, add The Fundamentals of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and our session from Sandler Sales Training to your calendar. If you’re looking to acquire a competitor or even planning on retiring someday, you’ll definitely want to attend Mergers, Acquisitions & Preparing for Big Opportunities: Take 2, where our speakers will tackle M&A from the financial, operational, and legal perspectives so you’re well prepared and achieve the best possible outcome for all parties involved.
