The 2017 TIA Capital Ideas Conference & Exhibition is just around the corner, coming up April 5-8 in Las Vegas. We hope to see as many of you there as possible.
Here are some must-see, must-do events to put on your calendar:
Panel Discussion - Thursday, April 6, 2:00-3:30 p.m. Know How to Really Recruit Good Carriers? This panel features Pete Emahiser, Tadmore Transportation; Justin Frees, Arrive Logistics; Chad Boblett, Boblett Brothers Trucking, LLC; and Jimmy DeMatteis, Des Moines Truck Brokers. Our own Eileen Hart MC's this panel intended to help new and "young" brokers determine how to recruit and retain carriers in hard and soft markets. The demand for this class has been so great, the TIA has moved it into the main ballroom.

Bowling Party - Friday, April 7, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Join us at the Red Rock Bowling Lanes and see if you come away with a prize for being one of the Lane Kings. Wine and beer and tasty hors d'oeuvres and, as always, a good time to network in our third annual DAT-TIA Friday night party.
DAT Booth - April 6 & 7. Join us in Booth #221 as we introduce a new, unique DAT Broker Benchmarking service that is unlike anything else in the industry (that's why it's "unique"). Seriously, the new service gives you a monthly 22-page report with more than 25 internal and external KPIs for you to benchmark your operational and financial performance against the industry.
Our theme for the conference and exhibition is the Biggest Got Bigger and Better, as we celebrate the DAT Super Database resulting from the consolidation of Getloaded and our own 36% capacity increase year-over-year, which goes hand-in-hand with a doubling of the industry's largest truckload capacity over the last 2 years.
