LAS VEGAS – A new one-of-a-kind executive-level conference to help fleets navigate the challenges and opportunities of doing business in the West will be held at the Las Vegas’ Sands Expo and Convention Center, which will also be the new location for the 2012 Great West Truck Show
“With the addition of the Great West Fleet Executives Conference we will be providing exclusive content focusing on western trucking operations, environmental regulations and other issues related to doing business in the West and designed to attract C-level fleet executives, dealers, distributors and industry associations,” says Alan K. Sims, vice president and executive director of the Randall-Reilly Events Group. “The trucking industry in the Western U.S. faces unique obstacles and has more stringent environmental restrictions than the rest of the country. Great West will now be the entry point for fleets and businesses to get the best understanding of that marketplace.”
In developing the new format, the Randall-Reilly Events Group will work closely with the California Trucking Association and other western-based associations. “We are excited to be a significant contributing sponsor to the new Great West Truck Show,” says Mike Campbell, California Trucking Association executive vice president and CEO. “With the significant changes to the venue and content, Great West will be the most relevant annual event for our industry in the West. Our membership, officers and Board will all have an active role in providing support, generating attendance and delivering content to ensure the event’s success.”
Conference and educational track content will include a focus on environmental issues and how carriers can overcome challenges posed by regulations and a changing economy. Industry leaders, experts and fleet executives will headline these sessions. Also, a more experiential exhibition floor will offer exhibitors and attendees greater opportunity for interaction with supplier-led “hands-on and how-to” areas, a first for Great West.
Great West’s new location at the Sands Expo & Convention Center is adjacent to the luxurious Venetian and Palazzo hotels and features a world-class expo hall and meeting space while offering easy access to the heart of Las Vegas.
The 2012 Great West Fleet Executives Conference and Great West Truck Show will be held June 14-16. For more information, contact Alan Sims at (800) 633-5953, ext. 1339 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
