ATA President Bill Graves to Deliver Keynote Presentation
The American Trucking Associations (ATA) has agreed to be an Event Partner of NGVAmerica’s 2013 North American NGV Conference & Expo, which will take place at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, November 18–21.
Themed Natural Gas: Transportation Fuel for a Better Bottom Line, the event is the largest of its kind in the U.S. to focus solely on the NGV market—comprising three days of plenary and breakout sessions, a 75,000 square foot exposition, a Ride-and-Drive event, pre-conference site tours, presentation of the annual NGV Achievement Awards, receptions and other networking functions, and a variety of related industry meetings.
As an Event Partner, ATA is providing input to NGVAmerica concerning program content, promoting the event to its membership and participating on the program, including a keynote address by ATA President and CEO Bill Graves during the opening plenary session Tuesday, November 19.
“We’re very pleased to have ATA on board as an Event Partner,” said NGVAmerica President Richard Kolodziej. “Powering America’s truck fleets with abundant domestically produced natural gas will improve truckers’ bottom line, lessen our dependence on foreign oil and energize America’s economy.
A number of progressive truck fleets are already transitioning their fleets to run on natural gas,” he added. “We look forward to working with ATA to increase their members’ awareness of this option and to reduce regulatory barriers to wider adoption.”
“There has been a great deal of interest in how America’s trucking industry can best utilize natural gas,” Graves said. “By partnering with NGVAmerica, ATA hopes to foster continued dialogue on this exciting, and potentially revolutionary fuel that can benefit fleets and the environment.”
North American Natural Gas Vehicle Conference and Expo has been endorsed by NGV Global.
