Why Attend I&E?


Driven to Succeed by Attending NAFA’s Institute & Expo

In one trip to NAFA’s Institute & Expo, you will gain the tools to make a valuable difference in your organization’s fleet operations! Building your network is one of the most valuable benefits of attending NAFA’s Institute and Expo.

It’s a fact
I&E is the largest show for Fleet Professionals, drawing more than 1,000 professionals from around the world. By attending I&E, you will experience cutting-edge products, learn about strategies and solutions to today’s fleet concerns, network with hundreds of fleet professionals from all fleet segments, and participate in professional development seminars.  Only I&E 2018 provides these great experiences and more, your potential to learn and save is limitless.

Networking doesn’t only happen during I&E’s 40 educational session. The building blocks of a great network start with casual encounters in hallways or chatting over coffee. During the 15 scheduled networking opportunities scheduled throughout the 2018 I&E, you can:

  • Work through common fleet issues with colleagues during industry-specific workshops
  • Build new relationships and strengthen partnerships on the Expo Floor
  • Enjoy chatting with peers during numerous coffee and refreshment breaks
  • Make connections and spend time with new friends at NAFA’s Networking Reception
  • Rock out at the opening night FLEXY Awards Party. The night includes the prestigious Fleet Excellence Awards, as well as plenty of food, drinks, and fun!

The formula to optimize your investment
Experience over 60,000 sq. ft with 250 exhibitors, learn from the brightest minds in fleet by select up to 8 of 40+ educational sessions that meet the latest fleet needs, and take advantage of networking opportunities all week to help build your rolodex of future fleet solutions; NAFA’s I&E offers so much that it’s nearly impossible to experience everything. And if this isn’t enough, don’t forget to consider two Pre Cons including International Fleet Academy/ Mobility Workshop and Disaster Preperation Workshop to bring thought leaders together and discuss relevant topics.


NAFA is up to date on presentations that address all (the) important issues dealing with fleets today.

NAFA continues to be an organization that provides beneficial information for fleet professionals. The enthusiastic willingness to help that is provided by NAFA members never ceases to amaze me. I learn something new every time I attend NAFA events.

Attendee

Attending I&E as a new fleet manager, I was intimidated at the prospect of meeting and connecting with contacts in the industry. However, all of my preconceived notions were shattered on my first day. Both exhibitors and other fleet managers were so welcoming and knowledgeable, I was put at ease almost immediately. I left the expo with a much better understanding of the overall industry and how I can benefit my fleet as a better fleet manager.
