What Learning Looks Like at The NATSO Show


When attendees typically think of learning at conferences like The NATSO Show, they usually think of the learning provided during the structured educational sessions.  And it is true, a lot of great learning happens during these sessions.

At The NATSO Show, we offer keynote sessions on the main stage in the exhibit hall. These sessions feature thought leaders to guide your plans for the future.

We also provide breakout sessions with industry experts who will provide ideas to help improve your travel plaza the day you get home.
We break out of the typical education box with the annual favorite Great Ideas! Workshop for Independent Operators. The workshop provides a forum for independent operators to learn what is working for their peers and rejuvenate their creative juices.

And, we also offer the opportunity for one-on-one learning in the Human Library, sponsored by Bridgestone Commercial Solutions. The Human Library gives attendees a unique chance to meet with experts who will focus on their individual business concerns.

But the truth is, while all that classroom learning is essential, The NATSO Show also offers a lot of opportunities to learn outside the classroom.

Attendees can learn directly from their peers during structured networking opportunities such as the Travel Plaza Attendees Reception and Dinner and the NATSO Foundation Fundraiser Social Event.

They also learn from unstructured networking opportunities in the hallways and during impromptu gatherings on the show floor.


They learn from their peers when they ask questions and provide input during educational sessions.
And don’t forget the exhibit hall, where innovative industry suppliers with blod new products and solutions have a lot of knowledge to share.
These are just a few of the places attendees learn at The NATSO Show. It really is two-and-a-half days of smart ideas, great new products and good advice — all designed to meet the unique needs of travel plaza and truckstop leaders.
