2021 LMTA Annual Convention

Thursday July 22 - Saturday July 24, 2021 

Pensacola Beach, Florida


Keep on Truckin'!


2020 was a difficult year for everyone, especially for the highway heroes in Louisiana's transportation industry. While a historic pandemic and hurricane season threatened to halt our state's economy, it was our industry that kept America moving forward. Through it all, we keep on truckin'!

Inspired by the popular comic by Robert Crumb, this year's convention will focus on our members who, through it all, kept on moving! The comic, animated from the Blind Boy Fuller song "Truckin' My Blues Away," was a symbol of 60's optimism. We hope to channel this same optimism moving forward into 2021, with our association's refreshed vision, leadership and focus.


About the Event:


Keynote Speaker Chris Spear, President of the American Trucking Association joins us Saturday with a special message and federal update. We will also have dedicated sessions on transportation updates, trucking research, and state legislative updates as well as key membership meetings. We hope you will join us in beautiful Pensacola Beach, Fla. at the Hilton Pensacola Beach July 22-24!

This year we will also be announcing the winners of Great West Casualty Company's 2021 Fleet Safety Awards as well as LATREC's 2021 Safety Professional and Truck Driver of the Year. We will also be recognizing the Louisiana Trooper of the Year and Weight Enforcement Officer of the Year at our Officer's Installation Banquet. The dress code for the banquet will be business casual.

In your wealth of free time outside of convention events, enjoy all that the Hilton and Pensacola Beach have to offer, with sugar-white sands and beautiful blue waters. Bring your families, we can’t wait to see you there!
