National Convention & Truck Show

Welcome to the ATHS Virtual National Convention & Truck Show! Below you will find the schedule for our three-day virtual event. The convention webinars require pre-registration, so be sure to review each opportunity very carefully as you plan your very own virtual show tour. What will you do first—bid on a model truck in the silent auction or see what useful products you can find at the vendor expo? If you have any questions or need technical assistance, feel free to email the ATHS office or call us during business hours at (816) 891-9900.

Looking for something specific?

It takes a wide circle of individuals to keep a 501(c)3 organization running smoothly, and our Board of Directors are key to our continued success. Board members are dedicated volunteers who are elected to office annually. The ATHS Board of Directors meeting begins at 5:00 p.m. CDT on Saturday, May 30, and will be followed by the ATHS Membership meeting after a 10-minute break. Join in and let your voice be heard!

The ATHS Silent Auction is happening in conjunction with eBay. We have hundreds of scale model trucks and trailers in the auction, along with artwork, and trucking memorabilia. Proceeds support the ongoing success of American Truck Historical Society, so please be generous in your bidding!

Enjoy presentations from the comfort of your own home (or truck for those on the road!). Topics cover painting your truck, to insuring it, and of course some history lessons! You can access numerous webinars and meetings during the Convention, as usual. But, you need to register online in advance. When you register, you will be provided with both computer login and telephone dial-in information.

More than 1,400 trucks, representing nearly 125 years of trucking history have been registered for the show. The trucks are being split into decades, with short videos for each, so don’t forget to check them out and let us know what your favorite(s) are!

Everyone loves a good story! Come share some of yours or just listen in.
