TMSA Unveils 2021 Conference Theme and Call for Speakers 

Minneapolis, Apr. 12, 2021 (MindShare Strategies Media Services) – The Transportation Marketing & Sales Association (TMSA) unveiled its theme of the 2021 TMSA Logistics Marketing & Sales Conference: “RISE.” The theme embodies the transportation industry’s unprecedented and spectacular ability to rise in response to the changes, challenges and opportunities experienced during the global pandemic. The in-person event will take place Oct. 3-6, 2021 in Nashville, Tenn. Content highlights are based upon the following:

Get ready to rise higher. In 2020, everyone in transportation and logistics rose to a new level. The industry is rising in the face of changes, challenges and opportunities. Ten years of evolution were compressed into one — and there’s no going back.  

What happened during COVID? Over the past year, shippers, carriers and logistics service providers took risks and tried new things. They developed new business models and expanded services. They rose to meet the extraordinary needs of their customers, employees and communities. 

The world is now awake. As the global economy rebounds, sales is focused on growth and capturing marketshare. Marketers are developing business strategy in a completely new context. Customer expectations have changed, technology has advanced, and partners across the supply chain now appreciate how sales and marketing drive customer value and relationships.

During the 2021 TMSA Logistics Marketing & Sales Conference, you’ll RISE as you experience the following:

  • Meet with other industry professionals in person to share ideas and experiences with others who speak the language of transportation, logistics, sales and marketing.
  • Surround yourself with the industry’s best experts as you seek new heights after the unprecedented experience we just had.
  • Gain meaningful insight from interactive roundtable discussions, expo, networking activities and more.

In addition TMSA has opened its call for speakers and presentations. If you are an expert in sales and marketing in the transportation and logistics industry and are willing to share your knowledge and expertise with others, TMSA now is accepting submissions online at
