The Annual Truck Driver Social Media Convention was founded on the principle of uniting, recognizing and honoring our nation’s truckers for their daily task of “keeping America moving.”
Social Media is a Branding of Trust
Reaching a targeted audience is a major goal for all those who have a message, product, or service to share. Based upon trust, Social Media is increasingly becoming “the way” to Stand Out with that message and then have that message go VIRAL
The TDSMC creates a positive atmosphere of trust between professional drivers and their supporters within the trucking industry, encouraging knowledge, relationships, networking, and communication. When your audience believes in you, your message to them is then shared through the hundreds of SM websites….thus the power of social media.
The 2013 TDSMC is an opportunity for drivers and the industry to be informed and educated about the issues, including: The Power of Social Media, The Truck Driver Shortage, Truck Driver Wages, The Truck Parking Shortage, including the presentation of results for this year’s National Truck Parking Survey which thousands of drivers have taken already.

- Honors and desires to Stand Out to over 4 million CDL drivers, being recognized as a Supporter of Professional Drivers!
- Understand that honesty and transparency should be priority when reaching targeted audiences
- Desires to be a part of positive change, sharing their knowledge and experience
- Wishes to network with like-minded people
- Believes that based on TRUST, Social Media is the major platform to share you message, product or service, potentially having the power to be shared to millions
