The global COVID-19 pandemic carries significant consequences for all sectors of society, including the many stakeholders within the tank truck industry.
With the ongoing emergency declarations, global travel constraints, and various state and local restrictions on group events, the overwhelming impact of the COVID-19 pandemic renders it impossible for us to host the NTTC’s Tank Truck Week scheduled for October 6 – 8, 2020 in Dallas, Texas. While an extremely difficult decision, the association’s leadership stands committed to best practices to ensure that all members of tank truck nation are safe from unnecessary exposure to the virus.
For your background, know that cancellation of major NTTC events like TTW and our Annual Conference greatly impact the association's revenue, margins, and cash flow just like the experience of many of our members since the onset of the virus in late March. Yet, NTTC forefathers were prescient in planning for crises like the virus and we stand well-positioned to weather the storm as we continue to advance the industry's interests through advocacy and education. Accordingly, we will refund all Tank Truck Week and Cargo Tank Inspection Workshop registrations, and will work with our exhibitors on refunds and alternative 2021 options by August 21, 2020.
Despite the trying circumstances, the tank truck industry continues to fulfill its essential role in the North American economy, and we continue to face numerous issues as the government clumsily attempts to address the crisis. As such, NTTC is currently developing a digital process to deliver components of Tank Truck Week, specifically including the reveal of the North American Safety Contest Champions. We will share the details of our virtual plans as soon as they are confirmed.
Thank you for your continued understanding and support as we try to navigate this rapidly changing landscape. We will follow-up with more information as developments warrant. Please do everything in your power to ensure that you and yours remain safe and healthy.
