FTR’s conference was unlike most transportation conferences I’ve attended. This conference is grounded in data and is tailored for those needing, generating, or analyzing data to improve the business.

The multiple content channels were great. The Q&A was handled well and app technology worked very well. The networking and size of the conference allowed many folks to interact and I thought the FTR staff did a fantastic job of talking with people and helping make sure the conference went smoothly.

If you are new to the NA transportation industry or just struggling to understand how it works go to the FTR conference. They have a thorough understanding of the industry and a special knack for bringing in industry insiders & experts to explain everything you need to know. Additionally, the majority of the major OEMs and industry suppliers from trucking and rail send representatives to the conference which provides a great opportunity to network.

I would say that the annual FTR conference is THE event for learning more about the state of the transportation industry and what is around the corner while meeting some new and old friends. The FTR crew do a great job of keeping you engaged and entertained while providing valuable insight into your business.

This was my first year attending the conference. From a content standpoint, this was the most informative conference that I’ve ever attended. If a fraction of the networking meeting that I had pan out, it’s a potential gold mine.

The FTR conference is an extremely informative event, jam-packed with fast-paced sessions throughout the day. With all the right people in the same room, this conference offers countless networking opportunities. The FTR team provides the analytics and forecasts, and the speakers present insight on how their companies approach their transportation strategies accordingly. This is a great conference to attend!

FTR does an excellent job of keeping the industry abreast of the macroeconomic forecast, but more importantly the transportation industry forecast. Their insights are invaluable for every industry participant from OEM to dealer, and from fleet manager to association professional.

The FTR conference is a high quality, information intense 3 days that provides a great introduction to freight transportation for novices, an update on the markets for decision-making and lots of social interaction in an interesting city and venue.
