In a new Meetings Mean Business survey of 100 federal agency employees who have travel-related responsibilities, nine of 10 respondents reported that face-to-face interaction enhances productivity, collaboration, and effectiveness.

When asked more specifically about the value of in-person meetings:

  • Two in three federal employees say that collaborating and innovating is best done face-to face.
  • Eight in 10 agree that in-person training is better for meeting and engaging with the "right people."
  • Four in five say that they have attended an in-person event that would not have resulted in the same level of success if conducted remotely.

Government Fleet Expo & Conference (GFX) attendees will get a chance to have in-person meetings with their peers and suppliers. The conference takes place June 8-11 in Denver.
