51st Annual Convention & Trade Show

St. Charles Convention Center & Embassy Suites           January 21 & 22, 2022           St. Charles, Missouri

Wish car drivers were better trained to drive around big trucks... 

Driving around commercial trucks can be dangerous. The risk of an accident increases with these vehicles because they have larger blind spots, cannot maneuver as easily, and take longer to stop compared to passenger vehicles.

In 2022, drive through and experience dump trucks up close and personal. The Missouri Dump Truckers Association (MDTA) 52nd Annual Convention & Trade Show is in St. Charles, Missouri on Friday, January 21, 2022 by member registration or special member invitation only, and Saturday, January 22, 2022 by free general admission from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Together with the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Tennessee Highway Patrol is bringing the first of its kind driving simulator for the general public to experience what it’s like driving around big commercial vehicles. You will be exposed to seven possible driving situations, specifically, distracted driving, stopping safely, reaction times, tractor trailers making wide right turns, the no zone areas of a tractor trailer, effects of cutting off a tractor trailer and the Move Over law.

Members of the MDTA have been running strong for over 50 years to support and protect the interests of the dump truck industry.

MDTA is distinguished in its membership of over-the-road haulers of dry bulk commodities. The membership is statewide, and with the members and their employees, you will find us in communities all over the state. Members are working businessmen and businesswomen who constitute an essential part of the transportation and construction industry.

One critical choice for a dump truck owner and/or operator is building a fleet of trucks and the care and maintenance of those trucks. The MDTA Associate Members consisting of dump truck, trailer body manufacturers/dealers, suppliers, vendors and other entities collaborate with the Regular Members to provide solutions to issues and concerns to support the bulk-hauler industry.

The MDTA convention and trade show offers the opportunity to learn about the latest industry developments, safety regulations and how others in the industry are utilizing this knowledge.

Together with its governmental consultant headquartered in Jefferson City, the MDTA represents the dump truck industry in the legislature and is looking out for your interest.

The St. Charles Convention Center and Embassy Suites extends their hospitality to the MDTA members as well as vendors from all over Missouri and surrounding states. Convention registrations include three meals and entertainment on Friday and Saturday night. The state of Missouri COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, however wearing face masks and practicing social distancing is strongly encouraged by the Convention Center.

During the Friday night social, food and drinks are served for the enjoyment of the registrants and their invited guests, along with music by John Shanahan.

After the Saturday morning breakfast included in the Embassy Suite reservation, a combined Board and General Membership meeting will commence to vote for the 2022 slate of officers. The members will receive an annual financial status report. Following, Senator Mike Moon (R-29, Ash Grove) request audience participation giving an enlightening account of “How a Bill Is Passed--What Really Happens When A Bill Passes The Legislature!”

For registrants, a luncheon is offered in the Junior Ballroom adjacent to the exhibit hall. Saturday night promises another delicious dinner and raffle drawings followed by an evening of entertainment by the Hunter Hathcoat Band.
