Work Truck magazine, along with sister publications Automotive Fleet and HDT, is launching Work Truck eXchange (WTX) this week, Nov. 9 to 11, at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The event is an intimate meeting that pairs a select group of fleet managers responsible for light- to medium-duty truck and van fleets with industry suppliers at an all-inclusive, networking retreat designed to accelerate the achievement of each participant’s unique business goals, according to event organizer Bobit Business Media.

This esteemed group of fleet managers collectively oversees fleets with well over 200,000 vehicles in operation and hail from some of most progressive fleets in the nation, according to the company.

Participating supplier companies represent all sectors of the industry — from telematics, cargo management, drug and alcohol screening, truck and van leasing, fleet technology, OEMs, oil filters, protective coatings, equipment, electrification systems and more.

The agenda includes ample networking meals and receptions, group presentations by suppliers, one-on-one meetings between fleet managers and suppliers, education and roundtables, where participants will discuss relevant topics such as their fleets biggest challenges, how they have utilized telematics successfully and balancing improving driver safety and productivity and more.

Work Truck eXchange will take place again in 2017 from Nov. 6 to 8 at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix.
