New dates announced for Australasian Fleet Conference & Exhibition 2020

By April 3, 2020 News

I hope you, your families and businesses are safe, secure and braced from the impacts of COVID-19.

I’m excited to announce the new dates for our Australasian Fleet Conference & Exhibition being Monday & Tuesday 9th & 10th November 2020.

Our success in finding alternative dates is based on preempting the need to postpone the conference and comes after many discussions, negotiations and compromises aligning many stakeholders, including: –

  • Event Partners Toyota Fleet and Toyota Fleet Management
  • Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC)
  • Crown Casino for the conference networking dinner & awards night at the Palladium
  • Moreton Hire for the exhibition fit out
  • Touchpoint our delegate registration, APP and scanning solution
  • Jon Faine our MC and
  • Our entertainers

Importantly, here are the things you need to know: –

  • The location and overall format remain unchanged
  • For exhibitors, the bump-in will take place on a Sunday 8th November
  • The leaders of industry dinner will take place on Sunday night 8th November
  • The conference dinner and fleet awards will take on Monday night 9th November
  • All sponsor, exhibitors and delegate bookings have been transfer to November

Now for the elephant in the room, what is the likelihood the conference will need to be rescheduled again due to COVID-19?

  • Unfortunately, no one can answer this question. COVID-19 is the largest global pandemic in the past 100 years. It’s hoped the restrictions on non-essential travel, gatherings, social distancing and time will allow us as a nation to return to normal, well the new normal (whatever that looks like) many months before the conference.

There are limited sponsorship and exhibition packages still available so contact Monalisa Marin +61 433 330 022
