Heavy Duty Trucking, along with sister publications Automotive Fleet and Work Truck, will be hosting the Work Truck Exchange, an intimate event that pairs a select group of commercial fleet managers with industry suppliers at an all-inclusive, networking retreat designed to accelerate the achievement of each participant's unique business goals. The hosted buyer event, which will be held from November 9-11, 2016, at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale, Ariz., will focus on fleets consisting of light and medium-duty trucks and vans.

Hosted buyer events, a concept imported from the European business market more than a decade ago, create an informal setting in which qualified buyers, or those with the decision-making responsibilities at a fleet, are paired with companies that are attuned to their specific industry. The guests must go through a qualification process that guarantees they are a perfect match for the vendors and suppliers also in attendance. Selected guests receive an all-expense paid trip to participate in the event. The event consists of roundtable discussions, small audience presentations and one-on-one meetings between the buyers and the companies that serve them.

Bobit Business Media, the world’s largest fleet publisher, has served the fleet market for over 55 years. Work Truck, Automotive Fleet, Heavy Duty Trucking and Bobit Business Media have an established relationship with fleet professionals and the companies that serve them. This enables them to have a deep-rooted understanding of the industry and the issues it faces, as well as the solutions that can best fit a fleet’s needs. Together they have crafted an event where industry thought leaders have the opportunity to explore the essential components of creating and maintaining efficient and effective light- and medium-duty truck and van fleets.
