If you’re a new driver looking to find your first job, or if you’re a veteran trucker in search of a better place to work, then the Great American Trucking Show may be a good place to begin your search.
Drivers who register to attend GATS can answer questions during the registration process about their driving experience, endorsements, and preferred driving areas. They will then be automatically matched to recruiters who have jobs that align with those criteria. Truckers can then request to set on-site meetings during the show.
GATS will be held Aug. 23-25 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas. Online registration for the show is free.
If registering online, drivers will be able to see a list of fleets before the show that meet their criteria and can either email a recruiter or set a meeting for the show.
Attendees who register for the show on-site will be able to go to Booth No. 3324 in the Recruiting Pavilion, or the GATS VIP Job Service booth in Lobby B near the show entrance to set meetings during the show. The meetings will be held at the fleets’ booths.
Those who register before July 31 will be entered into the Great GATS Giveaway for a chance to win one of three prizes. The grand prize includes two-night accommodations, two VIP concert passes, two GATS VIP preview passes, a tag-along with a Pride & Polish judge, a $250 pre-paid credit card and a $50 voucher to the GATS show store. The second prize includes two-night accommodations, two GATS VIP preview passes, a $150 pre-paid credit card and a $35 voucher to the GATS show store. The third prize includes two-night accommodations, two GATS VIP preview passes, a $100 pre-paid card and a $25 GATS show store voucher.
