NAFA’s 2016 Conference Media Sponsors Help Promote Fleet Management to the Masses

Prestigious publications are joining with NAFA Fleet Management Association to be a part of the 2016 I&E.

Princeton, NJ, March 03, 2016 --( Leading fleet industry publications from throughout the world have signed on as official media sponsors of NAFA’s 2016 Institute & Expo. The 2016 Institute & Expo (I&E) takes place April 19-22 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas. This year’s list includes Bloomberg Businessweek, which has presented advertising for NAFA’s I&E in its two concurrent February issues.

“NAFA’s mandate to elevate the status of fleet management has clearly struck a chord with fleet publications,” said NAFA’s Chief Executive Officer, Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “Our media sponsors continue to help the Association broaden our base of support, tout the bottom-line benefits of expert, educated fleet professionals, and can play an instrumental role in the conference itself,” Russo added, noting that several members of the media will be presenting at NAFA’s 2016 Fleet Excellence Awards (FLEXYs).

In addition to Bloomberg Businessweek, NAFA’s 2016 I&E media sponsors include leading fleet publications and websites such as Autosphere, CAR/Canadian Automotive Review, Field Technologies, FleetDigest, Fleet Management Weekly, CAMAUTO, NGT News, The Municipal, Fleet Management, International Fleet World, and Modern Work Truck Solutions.

NAFA’s Institute & Expo attracts thousands of fleet professionals from throughout the world for four days of education, networking, and motivation to bring back to the office. The event program, created by fleet managers for fleet managers, features fleet training, education, and workshops; and an Expo Floor consisting of more than 200 companies showcasing their products and services, including the Expo Floor Green Zone, showcasing the latest products and services touting sustainable practices. A host of intriguing and informative keynotes includes: Dan Ricci, Global Big Data Automotive Industry Leader for IBM Corporation (“Big Data: Advanced Analytics And The Connected Vehicle“); Sun Country Highway CEO Kent Rathwell (“Driving Innovative Solutions Toward Sustainability“); and Move-Over Awareness Campaign Founder Donna Setaro (“Slow Down, Move Over, It Is The Law“).

Also in Austin in 2016, NAFA’s International Fleet Academy returns as a pre-conference, one-day event on April 18. This gathering focuses on the unique aspects of the global fleet management sector, and what is required of fleet professionals when their organizations go global. It is a “must” for business people who may be involved with international fleet oversight in the future.

“Media sponsorship opportunities are still available and are a powerful way of getting a publication in front of the largest single gathering of fleet business people,” Russo concluded. “I encourage representatives of the business media to contact NAFA today.”
