Police Fleet Conference returns in 2024 to the annual Government Fleet Expo & Conference, the largest annual conference for public fleets in the nation.

This year, GFX will be held in Louisville May 7-10.

6 Reasons PFC is a Must-Attend Event

1. Unique Seminars and Panel Discussions Hosted By Your Peers: PFC and GFX is jam-packed with opportunities to learn, including at the seminars and panel discussions. Hear about industry trends, engage in discussions on hot button topics, and learn about up-and-coming technologies optimizing law enforcement fleet management.

These sessions are hosted by fleet professionals with a wealth of industry knowledge. From pursuit-rated vehicles, to tires, and sirens, this year's educational sessions are ones you won't want to miss.

In addition to the educational sessions, you'll also have an opportunity to hear from Kelly Reagan, Fleet Administrator for the City of Columbus, Ohio, this year's industry keynote speaker. Details on the opening keynote speaker are coming soon. But trust us, you'll want to hear their story too!

3. Endless Networking Opportunities: In addition to your time in the Exhibit Hall, we've also carved out several additional networking events for you to meet with fellow fleet professionals so you have opportunities to bounce ideas off one another and learn how your peers are managing their fleets. In addition to our networking opportunities, we've also left time for you to meet 

4. Take a Test Drive of Police Vehicles: A lineup of some of the latest vehicles from OEMs will be available for you to drive at the Block Party & Experience. Interested in testing a different vehicle make and model for your officers? This is your opportunity. OEM reps will be onsite to answer all your questions.

The Block Party & Experience is the official kickoff to GFX. It's a chance to network, test drive some cool vehicles, listen to music, and have some fun.
