NAFA Launches Institute & Expo Website; Online Conference Registration Now Open

NAFA Fleet Management Association has created a new website to promote their annual Institute & Expo.

Princeton, NJ, November 15, 2008 --( NAFA Fleet Management Association is proud to announce the launch of – the first website devoted to the fleet industry’s largest networking event of the year: NAFA’s Institute & Expo (I&E).

Coinciding with the site launch is the opening of online registration for NAFA’s 2009 I&E in New Orleans. All fleet professionals are encouraged to register early to take advantage of early-bird discount registration rates that run through December 31, 2008.

The 2009 Institute & Expo will be April 25-28 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. The New Orleans Hilton Riverside will serve as the headquarters hotel. Online hotel reservations are also available through the I&E website. Registrants are encouraged to make their hotel reservations early, too, as the I&E takes place the same time as New Orleans’ famous Jazz Fest, so hotel rooms will be hard to come by.

“NAFA’s Institute & Expo is the fleet conference that offers premier training and educational programs for all fleet managers, whether your fleet is small or large, government or commercial, owned or leased, domestic or international,” said Patti Earley, CAFM, Chair of NAFA’s I&E Curriculum Committee. “No matter if you are just starting out as a fleet manager or have been in the industry for decades, NAFA’s I&E has something for you. With 50 courses to choose from offering 65 hours of training and professional development and the largest expo in the fleet industry, the I&E is a ‘must attend’ event for fleet professionals.”

The new website gives I&E attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors all the information they need in one easy-to-use location. Everything from a detailed schedule of events, to a list of exhibitors, to hotel and travel information, and sponsorship levels, is just a click away. In addition, the website contains information about the Jazz Fest, in case you want to extend your stay.
“This year's I&E in New Orleans will be an event that all fleet professionals must attend,” said Mike C. Camnetar, CAFM, Chair of NAFA’s I&E Arrangements Committee.
