What is the Dispatchers Convention?

by Oded Carmi

 

Those of you who are Domestic Asset Based Movers (US-DABs) have likely heard talk of the Dispatchers Convention. If you haven't attended before, let me tell you what it's all about.

 

The Dispatchers Convention is an unaffiliated event. This means it is not organized by an association like most other notable industry gatherings. Each year a different moving company is voted to host the conference. Past Dispatchers Conventions have been hosted by industry leaders such as National and Carlyle. This year DN Van Lines and Day Transfer were chosen to host the event. The 46th Annual Dispatchers Convention will be held in Clearwater FL from March 30 to April 3.

In the future, we’ll share information about Warehouse and Cargo liability, Workers’ Comp, Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) and Cyber coverage among other topics.
