ATHS reports that the 2022 registration numbers look good. “We are tracking ahead of 2021 numbers for both truck and attendee registrations. We are optimistic that truck registrations will be a great turnout with participation from across the States. Hundreds of ATHS dedicated members will make the long road trip, despite any obstacle in their path. Some may have to adjust to demanding time, but most important is their presence,” said Executive Director Laurence Gration. “Our event is ‘more than just a truck show’ – it’s a Convention; a celebration and gathering of members and truck lovers whether they be lifelong or brand-new friends. ATHS is very proud of the educational aspect of the convention, presented by members for members, allowing all to share the experience.”
