‘Progressive Fleet Operators, Advanced Vehicle OEMs, Clean Fuel Suppliers’
“Fleet-focused educational sessions” are a prime emphasis as organizers gear up for the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo – fast approaching at Southern California’s Long Beach Convention Center. ACT Expo 2017 takes place May 1-4.
The gathering is presented in partnership with FleetOwner.
“Gain insight from progressive fleet operators, advanced vehicle OEMs, clean fuel suppliers, and other industry leaders,” says ACT Expo organizer (and Fleets & Fuels publisher) Gladstein, Neandross & Associates.
More Than 3,000 Expected
“This year’s ACT Expo will be the most comprehensive to date, both in terms of an incredibly deep program and the most expansive show floor,” says Erik Neandross, CEO at GNA.
“We are excited to welcome more than 3,000 industry leaders and fleets from around the country to this year’s show,” he told F&F.
