DeliveryCon — the event for last-mile delivery fleet solutions — will close the Call for Papers application process on June 6. Organizations and individuals who have seminar topic or speaker proposal are encouraged to submit a proposal through the Call for Papers portal.
The inaugural two-day event, convening Oct. 16-18 at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, features keynotes, education sessions, an expo hall, and networking.
“We’ve put together an exciting agenda so far, and it has come together quicker than expected,” said Chris Brown, conference chair. “But we still have openings for great education to help delivery fleets discover new efficiencies, tools, and technologies to keep their drivers safe and productive.”
DeliveryCon’s focus is last-mile and middle-mile delivery fleets, both company-owned and contractors to major parcel delivery couriers, running cargo vans, step vans, and box trucks, up to Class 7 and 8 tractors.
High-mileage fleets are also encouraged to attend, such as passenger shuttle services, cannabis and secure transport, grocery and refrigerated transport, franchised services, and beverage distribution.
