Fleet managers and suppliers gathered at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale, Ariz., Nov. 9 to 11, for the first-ever Work Truck eXchange (WTX). Produced by Bobit Business Media, publisher of Automotive Fleet, WTX consisted of educational sessions, industry roundtables, one-on-one business meetings, and networking.
Fleet managers were enthusiastic about the inaugural event. “WTX facilitates meaningful and mutually beneficial dialogue in a hassle-free environment benefiting both suppliers and operators,” said Marvin McClain, director of Enterprise Fleet for the American Red Cross.
The benefits of WTX continued beyond the event itself. “Being able to participate in WTX will give me the opportunity to bring more value and productive function to my company’s fleet,” said Matthew Weisensel, fleet director for N-LINE Traffic Maintenance. “Meeting in the fashion we did, allowed friendships to be formed, which is an important factor in any business relationship.”
The 2017 WTX will be held Nov. 6 to 8, 2017, at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix.
