Fleet's “Mobility Evolution” Takes Center Stage at NAFA's International Fleet Academy Pre-Conference
 
Event Just Prior to NAFA’s I&E to Provide In-Depth Exploration of Mobility Changes All Fleets Must Adopt
 
PRINCETON, N.J. – (January 23, 2018)NAFA Fleet Management Association, the vehicle fleet industry’s largest trade association, today announces the return of the annual International Fleet Academy (IFA), taking place April 23, in Anaheim, Calif. The IFA precedes the Association's annual conference, the NAFA Institute & Expo (I&E).
 
Radical change is coming in the form of vehicle sharing, greater autonomy, and an explosion of technology. The IFA will provide an engaging forum to discuss questions concerning where the fleet/mobility industry will be 10 years from now and how this rapidly evolving industry will impact North American and global fleets.
 
"Today’s fleets could very quickly be unrecognizable in tomorrow's business world. More than ever, fleet professionals need education and peer networking to stay up to date on the mobility continuum and all it entails for the industry," said NAFA CEO Phillip E. Russo, CAE. "Fleet managers who don’t embrace and lead in mobility will risk obsolescence. This event was developed to give attendees the edge in what are exciting, and certainly innovative, changes to fleets all across the world."
 
Topics to be covered at IFA:
 

  • The Continuum: Mobility from Infancy to Reality
  • Changing Your Language: TCO to TCM (Total Cost of Mobility)
  • Arming Yourself for the MaaS (Mobility as a Service) Revolution
  • Electrification Trends and Practicalities
  • Lessons Learned (Panel): Fleet Managers Discuss Their Journeys Along the Mobility Continuum
