Sponsor/Exhibit

We are currently offering all attendees the opportunity to be exhibitors at the 2022 Northeast Commercial Vehicle Safety Summit – Advancing Technology to Prevent Truck & Bus Crashes, in order to promote safety and best practices. The 2022 Summit is an opportunity to teach representatives from the truck and bus industry, law enforcement and State and federal government about emerging technologies and ways they can be utilized to improve commercial vehicle safety.

Exhibitor booths will be located to ensure maximum exposure. We schedule numerous breaks throughout the day, providing opportunities for Summit attendees to network and mingle with exhibitors. All these elements combine to create an ideal environment for developing fresh clientele.

Each exhibitor will have access to a table top display space with six foot draped table, one chair, and access to electrical outlets. Because this is an FMCSA supported event, policy requires that all exhibitors use the space to present technologies and services, rather than direct promotion of any specific private company.

To apply to become an exhibitor, please complete the following form: http://www.umasstransportationcenter.org/Forms.asp?MODE=NEW&Forms_FormTypeID=-112
