The 2016 Global Fleet Conference will be held June 6-8 at the iconic The Hotel in downtown Brussels, Belgium.

The Global Fleet Conference, now in its fourth year, attracts multinational fleet managers and global fleet suppliers from around the world to learn and exchange ideas about the most pressing topics affecting their international fleets and build professional and personal connections.

The Global Fleet Conference is co-produced by Bobit Business Media, publisher of Automotive Fleet magazine, and Nexus Communication, publisher of Fleet Europe magazine. The annual conference alternates between U.S. and European locations. For those planning to attend, we encourage you to register as early as possible. The previous three conferences in Phoenix, Brussels, and Miami all sold out weeks early.

More information on the 2016 conference and schedule of events can be found on the conference website.

The conference agenda will provide attendees with solid educational content balanced with ample opportunities to network and strengthen their ties with fleet managers and fleet professionals from around the world. In addition, attendees will have numerous networking opportunities to build on the learnings they receive in the general sessions and to build their personal and professional networks.

The conference venue — The Hotel — is located on the Boulevard de Waterloo and is conveniently situated near Avenue Louise, the historic Grand Place, and the European Parliament buildings.

Raves from Multinational Fleets

Following are two testimonials from the 2015 Global Fleet Conference in Miami, offering a North American and European perspective on the value of attending the Global Fleet Conference.

From the North American perspective: “The educational content was very strong and the conference offered a valuable networking experience,” said Michael Bieger, senior director, global procurement for ADP. “What I found very beneficial was the exchange of ideas and the ability to directly speak with the leaders shaping the global industry was extremely important. It cut out the middle men and allowed me to quickly get all the answers to questions I had in one place. Also, the fact that the entire globe (EMEA, LATAM, and APAC) was represented was a huge benefit.”

Offering the European perspective is Dieter Westermann, director of global sourcing for Bayer Healthcare in Leverkusen, Germany.

“I found the 2015 Global Fleet Conference in Miami offered a good opportunity to network, which gave me the ability to find out where the other fleet organizations stand,” said Westermann.
