NAFA’s 2014 International Fleet Academy is the premier global fleet conference for a good reason. Fleet professionals who attend the IFA learn from the best and most knowledgeable individuals on the subject of global fleet management. Attendees can share information with colleagues in an intimate setting arranged by NAFA, the most trusted name in fleet.
From discussions regarding cloud-based location intelligence software platforms, to fleet centralization versus regionalized structure, standardization of goods and services, staffing, how to identify and visit the right regional people, and more, IFA provides unparalleled education for fleet professionals with international oversight.
This year’s International Fleet Academy takes place November 5–7 at the Rosen Shingle Creek resort in Orlando, FL. The conference is designed specifically to meet the unique needs of those who manage fleets of vehicles outside the United States and Canada, and to provide a high-level, peer-driven environment for the exchange of ideas, solutions, and information.
“NAFA membership wanted an event where global fleet managers could engage each other on a peer-to-peer level,” said NAFA’s Chief Executive Officer Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “The IFA offers these professionals just that, so that they can share with each other with confidence.”
Topics of discussion at IFA include: Global Information Systems; Fleet and Taxation around the Globe; Global Funding Differences Using Finance Leases, Operating Leases, and Capital Allocation Strategies; Global RFP Funding; Global Fleet Procurement and Supply Chain; Global Fuel Card Acceptance; Duty of Care: Global Health and Safety Standards; and much more.
The IFA is the conference that consistently delivers the most, and most relevant, global fleet information in the field.
Russo concluded, “No other conference comes close to covering all of the material that this covers or goes into as much detail. If your corporation has someone managing vehicle fleets outside of North America they need to attend the International Fleet Academy. The education learned, and the knowledge gained from the peer-to-peer communication, can save your company millions of dollars and hundreds of manpower hours!”
In addition to the educational sessions, NAFA’s International Fleet Academy offers exclusive networking opportunities and a cocktail reception and dinner each night. Early registration costs before September 30 are $699 for NAFA members and $1,139 for non-members. Fleet professionals who join NAFA as they register by the early registration deadline of September 30 will receive a year of NAFA membership and registration to the IFA for the low price of $839 – a savings of $779. Seating is limited for this conference, and with early-bird pricing available until September 30, opportunities to attend are going fast.
