There's no better place for a fleet manager to be this April than NAFA's 2010 Institute & Expo (I&E) in Detroit. With more than 175 of the leading fleet and automotive industry companies exhibiting their products and services, it's a great opportunity to meet and do business with vendors on a one to one basis. And, thanks to the support of NAFA's Affiliates, all qualified fleet managers can now attend the Expo Hall for free!
The Expo Hall, which takes place at the Cobo Center in Detroit, opens on Sunday, April 25 at noon. Fleet managers will see and experience the latest in fleet products and services from national exhibitors, including top vehicle manufacturers, leasing companies, software suppliers, service providers, maintenance and repair companies, and many others. The Expo Hall is also the home of the Green Zone, a special section where vendors spotlight the latest technology for clean diesel, alternative/renewable fuels, hybrid cars and trucks, electric cars, and other advanced technology designed for a cleaner, more environmentally friendly fleet.
Fleet managers are encouraged to join us Sunday for a special Networking Welcome Reception on the Expo Floor from 4pm to 5:30pm. Affiliates and Manufacturers sponsor the reception, which provides great food and beverages and the opportunity to network with fellow fleet managers from throughout North America.
Qualified fleet managers are welcome to attend the Expo Hall on both Sunday and Monday at no cost. In order to qualify, a person must either manage a fleet or be involved with the managing of a fleet; those who provide a service or product do not qualify for free entry.
The Expo Hall is only one part of NAFA's Institute & Expo. Thousands of fleet professionals from all across the United States and Canada come to the I&E for over 60 hours of fleet training, education, and workshops; events such as the Public Safety Roadeo and Ride-and-Drive; presentations of some of the most prestigious awards in the fleet industry; and countless hours of networking with the best and brightest of their peers.
Fleet managers are encouraged to take advantage of quick and easy online registration at the conference website, but may also show a business card and drivers license (or other form of identification) at the Expo Hall for entry.
