We found the ex­pe­ri­ence at the 9th an­nual Road To­day Show ex­tremely valu­able and very pro­fes­sional run. Those who at­tended were ex­tremely fo­cused on bet­ter­ing their own ca­reer and the truck­ing in­dus­try as a whole. I was very im­pressed, it was truly a top notch show. I and my staff will def­i­nitely be re­turn­ing next year. Robert Scheper, Pres­i­dent, THR Man­age­ment Sys­tems/ Mak­ing Your Miles Count
