The 2021 Fleet Forward Conference, convening in person at the Hayes Mansion in San Jose Nov. 10-12, announces Innovation in Motion, in which attendees can ride, drive, and experience electric vehicles and other technologies available now or coming soon to the fleet market.  

A new addition to the conference, Innovation in Motion is sponsored by Element and Geotab and will take place on Thursday, Nov. 11, at 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. PST.  

“At the Fleet Forward Conference, we’re cultivating thought leadership on the new technologies that are making fleets more efficient, sustainable, and safer,” said Chris Brown, conference chair. “Innovation in Motion takes this mandate out of the seminar halls and into the hands of attendees, where they can experience these technologies themselves.” 

Experts will be on hand to explain and demonstrate the vehicles and technologies ranging from electric passenger car and commercial vehicles to demonstrations of an electric pallet, solar EV charging, a mobile cleaning unit, and an autonomous tractor.
