SCOTTSDALE, AZ - The Rocky Mountain Fleet Management Association (RMFMA) will hold its 2011 RMFMA Conference & Expo on Oct. 4-7 at the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz. This conference focuses on Fleet Strategies for Success.

Hundreds of fleet professionals, equipment manufacturers, and suppliers from around the country routinely attend this event. Diverse exhibitors range from parts suppliers and tool manufacturers to mobile solutions and vehicle and truck manufacturers. The Expo is more than three acres and showcases the latest in technology, vehicles, and software solutions.
