UPDATE ON COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS HEAVY DUTY TRUCKING eXchange (originally May 6-8, 2020)

Updated: 1:30 pm PST - March 13, 2020

Postponement: Heavy Duty Trucking eXchange

As the organizer of Heavy Duty Trucking eXchange, we have been in close communication with our venue partners and monitoring the COVID-19 crisis on an hourly basis. We continue to prioritize the safety and health of our attendees, sponsors and staff above all else. We have come to the conclusion that it is best to postpone our event. Heavy Duty Trucking eXchange has quickly become the trusted relationship-building event for leaders in the heavy-duty commercial truck market. None of this would be possible without our partners on this event so we wanted to weigh all of our alternatives on behalf of every constituency that invests in this event alongside Bobit Business Media.

After a great deal of discussion, we have jointly decided to postpone the 2020 Heavy Duty Trucking eXchange. The safety and health of our attendees and partners is of paramount importance at this time.

We have been able to quickly secure new dates with the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch for November 16-18, 2020.

We want to take a minute to offer our sincere thanks and appreciation to all of our operator attendees and sponsor hosts of this event. We look forward to putting together a great event with all of you in the near future. If you have questions regarding your participation, please contact myself (Angelia McCormick) at (310) 533-2591 or [email protected].

We appreciate your patience while we navigate these uncharted waters.

Sincerely,
