The event unfolds on Nov. 28-30 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City hotel, adjacent to Washington’s Reagan National Airport. 

The summit will explore all facets of natural gas use in trucking including recent fleet experiences, current and future technology from truck and engine manufacturers, vehicle maintenance and repair shop considerations, the status and timeline for expanding the nation’s fueling infrastructure and views from Congress and other government policymakers.
