CIS Casino Night at Expo 2017

by | Jun 21, 2017 | Expedite Expo Updates

I say enough work…it’s time to PLAY!  Let’s blast off a new season and celebrate our positive momentum at Expedite Expo in Lexington, KY July 14th.  CIS Casino Night is our way or thanking our Owner Operators and Motor Carriers for their support.  So let’s kick back and have some fun together Friday night!

D.J. Rick with Premier Casino Events is back, and he promises to keep everyone moving with music and entertaining contests throughout the night.

We’ll be expanding once again for more games, dancing and play gambling including Blackjack, Craps, Roulette and Texas Hold ‘Em.

Prize pledges are coming in now from motor carriers, fleet owners and vendors asking how they can contribute to give back to all of YOU, the drivers who make AMERICA MOVE.

So whether you’re an Owner Operator, Fleet Owner or Motor Carrier – Give yourself a little vacation and come out and play…you deserve it.

The Expo starts Friday with various interesting trucking workshops that begin at 8:00 am.

(I’ll have one on insurance Friday morning at 9:00 and Christina (CC) will be moderating a roundtable discussion on Networking Friday at 10:00 and Saturday at 1:00.  Please join us.)
