What People Are Saying About ELEVATE

April Morone, Freight Sales & Operations Director, GoProFreight

"As a new member and a first-time attendee to the TMSA ELEVATE conference in Savannah, my conference experience was absolutely incredible. The networking, the knowledge, and the energy that go through that conference truly make it one of a kind. I’ll never miss another one, it’s by far the best conference I’ve been to."

Mike Mikulik, VP Sales and Marketing, North America, SPI Logistics

"I love being a part of TMSA. In the last 2 events we have gotten so much out of it. Last year our marketing was in a funk, and if I look what we took from 2022's meetings and connections our marketing is going in the right direction. What we learned at ELEVATE 2023 will take it to another level. Can't wait for 2024!"

Kameel Gaines, CEO, Rig On Wheels

"The TMSA ELEVATE 2023 conference was enlightening and motivating, and I'm glad I went. I couldn't wait to get back to our sales lab and start putting my newfound marketing knowledge to use. I left the conference feeling refreshed and eager to put the new ideas I learned into practice. The 2024 event in New Orleans is also high on my list of must-attends."

Rob Bussey, National Sales Manager, BWS Logistics

“In my first year with TMSA I have made so many great industry connections which have helped me learn and see things from differing perspectives within sales and marketing. If you are not a member, please join the TMSA and I will see you in New Orleans."
