We said “thank you” to the speakers at and sponsors at Trucking Social Media 2011 (aka Truck Driver Social Media Convention in 2011), the first annual event of which was held on Saturday, October 15, 2011, in Tunica, MS.
(Here is our list of 2012 sponsors.)
A huge thanks goes to Allen and Donna Smith, of AskTheTrucker.com and TruthAboutTrucking.com, who organized the whole event.
We were honored to be part of this fine group of folks and businesses that support professional truck drivers.
Because of this support, we think that their products, services or advocacy deserve consideration.
To show our gratitude to these speakers and sponsors, we are “giving back” by listing and linking to them below alphabetically.
Note: Names and website links appear in non-alphabetical order on TruckingSocialMedia.com, the sponsors being listed by sponsorship level.
Some sponsors not listed online were included in the event program.
We are enhancing the list of speaker and sponsor names and links by adding all of the Twitter links we can find.
If you know of a Twitter link that should be included, please contact us.
The Twitter hash tag for this event is #TDSMC (for Truck Driver Social Media Convention).

Money saving tip: When you contact any of the speakers or sponsors from the Trucking Social Media 2011 Convention from the lists above, please tell them that you saw their link on our website.
Also if they sell a product or service, it doesn’t hurt to ask if they have a discount or introductory rate.
They might not have one, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
Sometimes the old saying applies: “You have not because you ask not.”
