It is becoming increasingly apparent that the next real challenge for pan-national fleet managers, direct and indirect procurement managers, and executives to whom fleet ultimately reports, is how to transition the management of their multi-regional corporate fleets to a global platform. Developing the subject-matter expertise of managing a fleet from a global perspective is going to be one the core competencies required of fleet managers, especially for those who seek to advance their responsibilities and elevate their careers at multinational corporations.

This is why the value of a truly global fleet conference has resonated so strongly at the world’s largest multinational organizations, especially among managers who have regional and/or global fleet responsibilities. In an era of cross-functional teams, there is a strong need for fleet managers to elevate their subject-matter expertise by being exposed to best practices that will reinforce to senior management that they are the in-house authority for all things dealing with fleet.

The global COVID pandemic has been the catalyst for much change in the management of multinational fleets, which are also being simultaneously driven by global business dynamics, trends in sustainability and mobility, and technology platform upgrades facilitating cross-border management of individual country fleets.

This is an important reason to attend the 2021 Global Fleet Conference, which will be held in-person on October 26-28, 2021, at the Hilton Miami Downtown in Miami, Fla. The conference is produced by Bobit Business Media, the publisher of Automotive Fleet magazine.  The Global Fleet Conference will identify the relevant real-world issues of global fleet management. As a global media organization, we are in regular communication with the brightest minds in fleet management in both North America, Europe, and LatAm, which allows us to develop an agenda pertinent to today’s and tomorrow’s fleet market.


Plenty of Networking Opportunities

The 2021 Global Fleet Conference will provide fleet managers and fleet proposals with an opportunity to network and collaborate with other managers managing multinational fleets. This invaluable networking opportunity, coupled to an educational format, will allow you to learn about industry best practices. Another important networking opportunity at the Global Fleet Conference is that it provides a cost-effective venue to interact with key representatives from major global fleet management companies, fleet suppliers, and OEMs.

In addition, the Global Fleet Conference is designed for country-specific fleet managers who want to learn how to position themselves to management as the No. 1 candidate capable of expanding fleet responsibilities beyond their home market.

The business case for attending the Global Fleet Conference is that fleet challenges are universal and by learning from other fleet professionals, it will lead to quicker problem resolution and creative solutions, saving your organization valuable time and money.

The Global Fleet Conference provides the best ROI by providing the most comprehensive educational forum to share global best practices with exposure to the greatest number of global fleet managers.

I hope to see you October 26-28, 2021, in Miami at the 2021 Global Fleet Conference.
