“HDTX is a great peer-to-peer event. The comradery among the attendees is as strong as the fleets represented. To connect with innovators and suppliers alike fosters the unique spirit that is alive and well in the trucking industry.”
“Nothing is more intimate that HDTX. I get 1:1 access; dedicated time that I don’t normally get at larger conventions. I would recommend it to any fleet operator.”
"Great networking opportunity and I would highly recommend it to others."
"I learned a great deal from other fleet managers, including new specs on trucks. I was also able to talk to several OEM suppliers and vendors on items that could be used in our fleet."
“It’s very informative. I found a lot on information, a lot of networking opportunities and a lot to learn from other people.”
"HDTX is one of the most valuable events you can attend for your company’s bottom line."
“One of the better organized conferences I have been to, agenda was well done, the host facility was great, food was good, excellent job by the host committee with everything from start to finish."
“The conference was one of the best (if not the best) I've ever been to. The format was amazing. It really got me in front of the maximum number of vendors in a really efficient way. No awkward uncertainty or inconvenient timing with the vendors."
"I learned about a lot of different types of equipment available to the industry and their benefits. I took away 3 solid ideas that I can implement rather quickly, which will help reduce fleet maintenance costs."
“You find the most incredible value in learning that all the fleets are in a place where they want to learn, excel and grow. The value is beyond compare.”
"A Big Thank You, to HDT for allowing me to attend the HDTX. I found it to be very informative and had a great time. The program was great, the speakers were excellent, and in all made a lot of new contacts. Thank you for allowing me to be a part."
“The best thing that I have found is the 1:1 with suppliers. Being able to sit down with them, learn about their products, pick their brains about products we’re using, and I found some new products I didn’t know were available.”
“I would recommend this to anybody. We have solid business potential - with multiple vendors here.”
“This is a really great mix, people from all across the industry – whether fleet managers, safety people or owners of companies. Everyone’s bring their own unique perspective.”
"I can read all day, but I got more out of HDTX than I could get in a thousand magazines. So THANK YOU all who put this together."
“I found it to me most rewarding and well organized. I am sure you and your group spent numerous hours in preparation. A pat on the back for a job well done!”
"HDTX provides an intimate, focused event with sufficient time to interact with both industry suppliers and other fleet professionals to discuss the demands placed on our business. I would highly recommend this event in the future."
“I like that it’s a smaller format. Its more 1on1 with the vendors and suppliers. I like that. You’re not lost in the shuffle of a huge trucking event.”
“Very well planned event where you have interaction with peers as well as suppliers to discuss common issues and common solutions. No wasted time - excellent interaction.”
“I was able to connect with more than 20 fleet managers from all over the country in one-on-one meetings, and with several others during meals and networking sessions. We are also close to closing a large sale that came out of one of our meetings."
"Your ability to assemble a group of diverse backgrounds with a common view for the future was great to be a part of! HDTX was an absolute wealth of knowledge and experience in one event!"
"HTDX was very well put together and the table discussions helped to get a lot of things taken care of. You were able to have face-to face time with the suppliers, the format was quick and easy, just honest conversation about products."
“The 1:1’s have been great. The suppliers have been very interesting. They’ve all been really meaningful, so time well spent.”
"The HDTX event surpassed my expectations. Spending dedicated time with various vendors allowed me to make conscious decisions about topics of conversations and the amount of time spent networking with fleets was exceptional."
