"The Request for Information (RFI) and Request for Quote (RFQ) processes are among the most important aspects of fleet management,"
The RFI-RFQ processes are further examined during two additional sessions:
What an OEM Expects and What They Deliver in Return – Representatives from major global OEM suppliers discuss their perspectives on the tender processes used by fleet managers to secure vehicles.
What a Fleet Management Company Expects and What They Deliver in Return – Representatives from major fleet management companies discuss their perspectives on the tender processes used by fleet managers to secure vehicles.
In addition to over 15 educational sessions, NAFA's International Fleet Academy offers exclusive networking opportunities and a cocktail reception and dinner each night. Early-bird registration is $650 for NAFA members and $1,105 for non-members. After August 16, registration costs are $799 for NAFA members and $1,550 for non-members. Fleet professionals may save $200 off the registration costs by joining NAFA as they register.
Attendees receive several value-added educational items to take back to the office including a ready-to-use executive summary; free subscription to International Fleet World magazine; the newly published NAFA's Global Fleet Guide; and valuable checklists for policies, RFIs, and RFQs. All total, it's a resource package valued at $2,500 - well worth the registration costs alone.
