Action-packed day exceeds expectations.

Element invited fleet professionals from the Greater Toronto Area to enjoy a full day of workshops, a keynote presentation, a trade show and a ride & drive.

The day began with workshops that covered three timely subjects: controlling maintenance costs, data insight, and safety and emerging technologies.

Following the opening of the trade show, Element’s guests were ushered into an auditorium to enjoy a presentation by Sebastien Blondin, Element’s President for Canada, and a keynote address by Bruce Croxon, former co-star of Dragon’s Den.

After lunch, Element’s guests were invited to enjoy the Ride & Drive, which featured dozens of vehicles, including some executive-level sedans.

Fleet professionals also had an opportunity to take a closer look at some of the latest products and innovations from an array of upfitters, all of whom had their wares on display near the Ride & Drive area.

Look for a full report in a future issue of fleetdigest.
