Preparing for the New Normal: Global Fleet Conference 2020 goes virtual

Each year since 2013, the Global Fleet Conference brings together global and international fleet professionals and industry experts from all over the world to discuss global fleet and mobility trends. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, it will do so again this year – in a new virtual format, from 2 June to early July, under the title: Preparing for the New Normal. 

Attending the Conference will be free of charge, but registration is required. To register, simply go on conference.globalfleet.com

Initially scheduled for 25-27 May in Rome, the Global Fleet Conference 2020 was cancelled, due to the travel restrictions and health risks caused by the coronavirus. 

Now more than ever, the global fleet community is in need of a forum for discussion, best practice sharing, expertise and guidance. This was confirmed by a recent survey, in which more than 45 global fleet managers of the largest fleets did underline the importance of having a digital conference.

With its varied topics and various formats, the Global Fleet Virtual Conference 2020 will deliver valuable content from industry experts and leaders. Some events will be pre-recorded, others will be live, enabling maximum engagement with the audience. 

Here is a first overview of the events planned over a five-week period, starting on 2 June:
