The 2010 ATA Management Conference & Exhibition (MC&E), scheduled for Oct. 16-19 in Phoenix, will assess the economic recovery, midterm elections and environmental initiatives from a motor carrier’s perspective. MC&E showcases new technologies and business services, with more than 150 exhibitors displaying everything from trucks and engines to software and support services. With networking opportunities and social events in Phoenix, MC&E is also a place to cement the personal contacts that make a business successful.

Highlights will include:
• A performance by award-winning actor and comedian Jason Alexander, who is best known for his role as George Costanza on the television sitcom “Seinfeld”;
• A two-part general session on new fuel economy standards for large trucks focusing on likely engine modifications and examining probable vehicle adaptations;
• Sixteen educational programs targeted to provide attendees practical information to implement in their business; and
• Bill Kurtis, one of America’s top journalists, and Bob Costello, chief economist for ATA, who along with a panel of blue-ribbon economists will provide insight into key economic factors affecting the trucking industry today.
