Element Fleet Management held its annual ride and drive event at the Toronto Congress Centre in Ontario on June 23 that included fleet professionals from across Canada.

"Our annual ride and drive event provides an opportunity to connect with clients in an interactive and impactful way," said Patricia Furgiuele, president of Element Fleet Management for Canada. "Through the exhibitor Expo, clients were able to engage in insightful discussions and hands-on demonstrations. The Ride and Drive was aimed at providing attendees with a behind-the-wheel experience with some of the best vehicles our industry has to offer."

Attendees test-drove some of the industry's newest vehicles, including five of the latest high-end vehicles. Over 175 new vehicles from a variety of motor companies, upfitters and specialty suppliers were available on-site.

Element consultants showcased technology offerings from the company that help clients overcome challenges, according to the company. Attendees were able to test Clarus Driver, a mobile tool that allows users to utilize their smartphones or tablets to complete fleet tasks, and Xplore, a business intelligence tool that allows clients to collaborate with Element strategic consultants to investigate data to uncover opportunities for fleet optimization.

Attendees also connected with automotive suppliers and other fleet industry professionals during a networking breakfast and luncheon.
