NAFA Becomes Association Partner with Bobit Business Media
for 2019 Global Fleet Conference
 
“This is good for the industry,” as NAFA Members Gain Access to Event Content
 
(PRINCETON, N.J. – January 8, 2019) – NAFA Fleet Management Association, the vehicle fleet industry’s largest trade association, is proud to announce it will be an association partner with Bobit Business Media (BBM) for the 2019 Global Fleet Management Conference, taking place June 4-6 in Miami.
 
As a part of the agreement, NAFA will have access to all of the conference sessions for which speakers have signed releases, enabling the Association to offer that content to its members shortly after the conference concludes.   In addition, NAFA will not be holding its annual International Fleet Academy (IFA), which has been a staple of the association’s educational offerings since 2011.
 
“Fleet managers and suppliers have many competing events to choose from when seeking educational content, as well as when choosing which events to support financially,” said NAFA Chief Executive Officer Phillip E. Russo, CAE.  “NAFA’s agreement with Bobit enables NAFA to provide its members with valuable content – which is our primary objective – while at the same time reducing expenses, obligations, and confusion related to having similar events in the same marketplace.  This is for the good for the industry.”
 
“We are very excited to have NAFA join the Global Fleet Conference as a supporting partner,” said Mike Antich, conference chair of the Global Fleet Conference. “The Global Fleet Conference is a global venue for all fleet professional to exchange best practices as evidenced by the strong support given by the Global Fleet Networking Consortium, which is comprised of the five international fleet associations -- Automotive Fleet & Leasing Association (AFLA), Asociación Méxicana de Arrendadoras de Vehículos (AMAV), the Association of Car Fleet Operations (ACFO) in the UK, the Australasian Fleet Management Association (AfMA), and China Road Transport Association (CRTA).”
 
The agenda for the 2019 Global Fleet Conference has been set, and Conference topics include:
 

  • 10 MegaTrends that Will Influence Global Fleet Management.
  • Four concurrent half-day deep-dive sessions on topics pertinent to global fleet management including safety, productivity, mobility, and managing vocational fleets.
  • Best Practices in Developing a Global Fleet Acquisition Strategy.
  • Making Fleet an Integral Part of a Global Sustainability Strategy.
  • How to Develop a Global Fleet Program from the Ground Up.
  • Transforming a Fleet into an Integrated Mobility Management Solution.
  • Market Reports on the European, Mexico, South American, and South African and North American fleet markets.
