Top 3 Things To See At GATS 2017

The Great American Trucking Show (GATS 2017) will be held in Dallas, Texas from August 24-26, at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.

We’re big fans of GATS! The show delivers a good time, employment opportunities, the latest trucking innovations, and it doesn’t hurt that the show is held Deep in The Heart of Texas, WAR-LOK’s very own backyard. 😃

Seeing how we enjoy the show so much, we’d like to share the top 3 events, exhibitions and booths that we are looking forward to experiencing, come August.
