Here's what former attendees of the Annual Conference
had to say:

• The content of the p
rogram continues to provide new ideas that I can bring back for improvement.

• Very professionally done. A broad array of quality topics.


• Wonderful atmosphere. Great chemistry amidst the members.

• I think the focus on education is on target; also can see how the organization is really working to understand the members' needs and interests of the members.

• This conference was the best I've attended yet.


• There were many great contacts and good sessions.

• This was my first NPTC annual conference, and I was very impressed! The agenda was planned extremely well with the balance of the workshops, general sessions and exhibition.


• I particularly liked the presentation format as it allowed more interaction between the attendees and the presenters.


• The conference was very professional, the exhibit hall was fabulous and the vendor sponsored meals were terrific.


• I met many people I had worked with over the phone, I feel like it really helps the relationship to talk to someone in person. We also met 4-5 other fleets that we are not currently working with and we already have began to do more business with them.


• I have several takeaways that will yield significant "bottom-line" benefits.

• Great seminars and wonderful potential for networking amidst peers.


• I always come away with some items that I can implement which bring in more value than the cost of attending.


• The ROI for participating in the NPTC annual conference and educational materials has always paid back very quickly. Every year, I come away with many new ideas and suggestions on how to improve our fleet operation.

• Good exhibit hall with a lot of good variety. Seemed like more of the booths were set up better to educate on their products or product innovation.

• Vendors had a lot of good information to share. It was great to see such a turn out. Without the vendors, you cannot see & hear what the industry has to offer.
