The Transportation Alliance (TTA) has released its draft agenda for Mobilize 2020, its annual convention and expo, with a packed slate to help fleet operators through the pandemic – and to position them for the coming business resurgence. The event, which is has been named, “The road to economic recovery” Mobilize 2020, takes place Nov. 7-9 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, Ga.
Convention topics on the preliminary agenda include:
- First-hand accounts from some of the most successful operators in the country on how they are surviving the pandemic and keeping their passengers and drivers safe
- Tips on expanding into the fast-growing non-emergency medical transportation market, and the push for national certification of NEMT drivers
- Finding and responding to RFPs to win new lines of business, including school, transit, and corporate contracts
- Technology discussions on systems automation, data management, apps, vehicle tracking, and call centers
- The latest information on new federal stimulus plans, as well as updated guidance on Paycheck Protection Program loan forgiveness
- The view from Washington and what the national election means for the industry
- Extra networking opportunities provided by open discussion sessions focused on responding to the pandemic, NEMT, and accessing funds
On the show floor, attendees will be able to peruse the latest technology and services from vendors and enjoy food and beverages in the Expo Hall. A complete list of exhibitors can be found here.
TTA will also be holding its annual meeting, electing new officers, and honoring its 2020 Executive of the Year and Driver of the Year.
