Following a successful inaugural stop in Atlanta, Fleet Forward: The Tour will convene its next stop in Chicago on June 16 at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center in Oak Brook, Illinois.
An offshoot of the Fleet Forward Conference, Fleet Forward: The Tour consists of one-day, regional events in which fleet operators can drive EVs and experience other new technologies behind the wheel. The Tour is free for qualified fleet managers.
The day also includes seminars and networking opportunities that focus on subjects such as infrastructure planning, charging strategies, funding opportunities, and electrification market trends. During lunch and networking breaks, attendees can interact with tabletop exhibits.
All the automakers that participated in the Atlanta event — BMW, Volkswagen, Volvo, Nissan, and Polestar, along with commercial EV makers Cenntro, Lightning eMotors, and ELMS — will have vehicles at the Chicago stop. More automakers and vehicles will be added and announced soon.
“In Atlanta, fleet managers were able to experience electrification firsthand — not only behind the wheel, but also one-on-one with subject matter experts who were ready to help them begin with EVs,” said Chris Brown, conference chair. “This is the mandate of the Tour stops, and it’ll continue in Chicago.”
Registration for the Chicago stop is open now.
After Chicago, The Tour will stop in Dallas on Sept. 15. The Fleet Forward Conference will convene in Santa Clara Nov. 9-11.
