NAFA Fleet Management Association (NAFA), the vehicle fleet industry’s largest membership association, announces the addition of a ride-and-drive and vehicle showcase to the 2024 Institute & Expo (I&E).
The NAFA's Institute & Expo Ride & Drive will be “Powered By Bobit,” the leading B2B voice of the fleet industry and publisher of Automotive Fleet, Government Fleet, Work Truck, and Heavy Duty Trucking, among other fleet and automotive brands.
The 2024 I&E will take place in San Antonio, Texas from April 22-24 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. The ride-and-drive and vehicle showcase will convene on Wednesday, April 24.
“We’re excited to once again offer a vehicle ride-and-drive at I&E, in which attendees can experience the latest models, electric and alternative fuel vehicles, and cutting-edge technologies behind the wheel,” said Bill Schankel, CEO of NAFA. “Bobit is the ideal partner to bring this to fruition.”
“We’re also looking forward to growing our relationship with Bobit for regional events that will offer certificate programs, education, and networking for NAFA members and potential new members,” Schankel continued.
NAFA and Bobit will also partner on regional events to promote industry knowledge, networking, and NAFA credentialing for fleet managers and fleet professionals.
In that regard, NAFA will co-locate its Southwest Chapter board meeting with Bobit’s Fleet Forward Tour stop in Long Beach, California in February, 2024. The event will include certificate programs, educational seminars, a ride-and-drive, and a networking dinner.
"This partnership not only fortifies the capabilities of both organizations but also enhances their capacity to cater to the needs of fleet managers and fleet professionals," said Henry Dicker, president of events at Bobit.
“At Bobit and NAFA, our mutual goals have always been to create more efficient, safe, and sustainable fleets,” said Chris Brown, associate publisher at Bobit. “We now have complementary forums to provide the education and resources to accomplish these goals.”
