Visit the Expedite Expo this week in Michigan

| 8/9/2004

Billed as North America’s only expediting-specific truck show, the Expedite Expo 2004 is scheduled this week at the Detroiter Travel Center in Woodhaven, MI.

Set for Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 11 and 12, the show will include performances by trucking singer/songwriter Joey Holiday, an OOIDA member, who was featured in July's Land Line Magazine.

“Joey Holiday is one of a select few entertainers to specialize in music for and about the professional driver, and we’re thrilled to have him at this, the 4th Annual Expedite Expo,” Lawrence McCord, the Expo's show manager, says. “We've seen Joey perform at a number of events in the past, and he never fails to give a great show.

“We've tried to have Joey at the Expo in the past, but this is the first year that his busy schedule has permitted him to join us.”

The free-admission event features expedited carrier recruiters, seminars and workshops about the expediting business, expedited truck dealers and manufacturers, the Expediter Pride truck beauty show, aftermarket vendors and a special guest appearance by trucking radio legend Dave Nemo.

This event is made possible by the kind sponsorship of OOIDA, Freightliner of Knoxville, FedEx Custom Critical, Big Rig Owner Magazine, Espar Of Michigan and Tri-State Expedited Service.
