NAFA’s International Fleet Academy, the premier industry event for fleet professionals who manage fleets of vehicles outside of the United States and Canada, is proud to announce A.I.A.G.A. (Italy’s largest fleet management association), Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler as platinum sponsors of the conference; bronze sponsors include ARI and PHH Arval; and Automotive Digest (Fleet Management Weekly) and International Fleet World have come on board as media sponsors.
NAFA’s International Fleet Academy will take place October 21–23 at Loews Ventana Canyon in Tucson, AZ. The 3-day conference will demystify global fleet management as experts and panel discussions provide valuable cost-savings strategies, offer a strategic overview of the differences among countries and cultures, inform attendees of the right questions to ask for the RFI-RFQ process, and present valuable lessons on how to decrease corporate liability by avoiding international insurance pitfalls.
“Global fleet management is the great unknown for many corporations,” explained NAFA’s Executive Director Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “When nearly every country presents an entirely new ball game for fleet managers, you need to know who to trust. NAFA has presented the International Fleet Academy since 2011. We’ve earned trust in the industry. The International Fleet Academy has a faculty in place with many of the world’s best global fleet managers. This is the perfect opportunity to learn from their experiences.”
The International Fleet Academy features a stellar roster of leading global fleet professionals. Among them is Kevin Fisher, CAFM, Vice President of Strategic Fleet Operations, ARAMARK, who will participate on a panel discussing the intricacies of the global RFI/RFQ process.
