Networking is Necessary for Success, and NAFA's I&E is Fleet’s Premier Networking Event
(PRINCETON, N.J. – February 24, 2020) – NAFA Fleet Management Association, the vehicle fleet industry’s largest trade association, announces an impressive roster of networking opportunities at NAFA’s 2020 Institute and Expo, April 6-8, Indianapolis, Indiana.
NAFA’s I&E is the premier annual fleet event for networking, and is the industry go-to when it comes to getting connected with industry leaders, colleagues, and peers. But what does that mean for the individual?
Writer Bianca Miller Cole said in her March 2019 article for Forbes, titled “10 Reasons Why Networking Is Essential For Your Career,” “For many individuals that have succeeded in their career, the causes have largely been contributed to the strong networking channels they have created over time.”
As published on the website for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation: “No matter how experienced and educated you are, you will do better off when you are in situations where you have a foot in the door. One of the best ways for you to create contacts and expand your set of connections is to network.”
Combining vital, next-gen education with the biggest networking agenda in the fleet/mobility sector, NAFA’s I&E provides the tools for 360-degree professional success. A sampling of networking-oriented happenings includes:
  • Communities Meet-N-Greet
  • I&E Kick-Off Tailgate
  • Opening Reception
  • I&E Half-Time Happy Hour
  • Closing Event at Indy Motor Speedway
  • 2 Days of The Expo
  • Coffee Breaks
  • ...and many more opportunities throughout the event!
"Few people have all the answers but having a knowledgeable network of connections puts you in touch with those answers you require," said NAFA's Interim CEO Bill Schankel, CAE. "I&E helps attendees build those long-term relationships not just for the future, but to succeed at everyday work."
