PRINCETON, NJ – Nearly 200 companies have registered to exhibit at NAFA's 2009 Institute and Expo in New Orleans — many with larger booths than in past years — and both expo revenue and total square footage is up from last year's numbers, according to the association. NAFA expects the event, which runs April 25-28 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, to be one of its best.

Manufacturers such as American Honda Motor Company, Audi of America, Ford Motor Company, General Motors Fleet and Commercial Operations, Harley Davidson Motor Company, Mazda North American Operations, Mercedes-Benz Fleet Operations, Subaru of America/Canada, and Toyota Fleet will all be exhibiting this year while Chrysler remains a major sponsor. Some of the larger service providers on the floor will be Reading Fleet Services, Insurance Auto Auctions, Flexible Marketing, Magna-SVE Commercial Services, Wright Express, ARI, Adrian Steel, AmeriFleet, Comdata, and GE Capital.

NAFA's Expo is actually larger this year than last — both in terms of the number of exhibitors and the total square footage of exhibit space sold, according to the association. In addition, NAFA has kept a full program of educational sessions and speakers in place as in years past.
