Other keynotes and general sessions will tackle the topics of how global operations vary according to market and the challenges of emerging markets, including Brazil, Russia, and China.

Concurrent sessions will drill down into more detail on a range of topics, covering global best practices, how to overcome the challenges of developing corporate fleet policies, how to engage global fleet stakeholders, and how to develop a global supplier strategy.

A unique aspect of the conference will occur during the opening night dinner. Attendees will be assigned tables and will work together to solve a specific global fleet management issue. The outcome of each table's discussion will be presented the following day during a special seminar session.
