In 2015, fleet managers and telematics professionals now have a range of conferences they can choose to attend, from traditional conferences to the next-generation events that talk increasingly about the benefits of the connected vehicle revolution.
Between the summits, (un)conferences, gatherings and drum circles it can get a little overwhelming, and unfortunately, a lot of companies (ourselves included) tend to push them off, waiting for the next big thing. But we know your 2016 planning is underway, so now is the perfect time to head out to a show and check out all the latest trends and technologies that will help you meet your annual business goals and objectives. Not to mention, tradeshows and expos give employees the opportunities to network, learn best fleet management practice and increase lead generation.
