GRAPEVINE, TEXAS - The 2011 Green Fleet Conference Oct. 3-4 in Grapevine, Texas, saw a 15-percent increase in attendance over last year, with more than 550 fleet professionals present. The 4th annual conference is the largest and best attended one yet.
The conference consisted of two days of presentations and educational panel discussions about green fleet vehicles, strategies, technologies, experiences, and compliance issues. Tulsa, Okla., Mayor Dewey Bartlett gave a conference-opening speech, and keynote speakers for the conference were John Schaaf from Johnson Controls and Britta Gross from General Motors. Thirty-five vehicles were available for a ride-and-drive on Monday, and the show floor allowed conference attendees to connect with key industry suppliers.
Awards announced at the show included the Sustainability All-Stars award, Government Green Fleet awards, and the Propane Hero award.
