The 68th annual EUFMC saw 157 representatives from fleets operating utility equipment, including 70 first-time attendees, and nine new companies that sent fleet professionals to the conference.
Also in attendance were 337 representatives from 87 manufacturers and providers of vehicles, equipment, products, and services for utility fleet operations.
“The largest EUFMC on record is especially gratifying considering the number of fleets and representatives who joined us for the first time,” said Jeff Schneider, EUFMC chairman. “The Board of Directors is grateful for all the fleet and manufacturer representatives who made the EUFMC a success, and as always the conference isn’t possible without the support of our sponsors. We look forward to continuing to provide unparalleled educational value and to serving as the industry’s leading forum for fleet professionals and suppliers.”
A keynote event at EUFMC was a live exchange with Mary Barra, chair and CEO of General Motors, who discussed GM's approach to addressing supply chain challenges. Barra also covered how the manufacturer is developing a range of electric vehicles, including work trucks, and charging infrastructure solutions, and meeting service needs.
“GM is focused on being responsive to its fleet customers,” Barra said. “We’re developing dedicated vehicles from the ground up to make sure you’re not compromising performance, and we’re looking to our commercial customers to play an important role as our partners in creating a robust EV network for the future.”
