The Transportation Alliance (TTA) has released its draft agenda for Mobilize 2020, its 102nd annual convention, with a packed slate to help fleet operators through the pandemic—and to position them for the coming business resurgence.
Under the tagline, “The road to economic recovery,” Mobilize 2020 is scheduled to take place November 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 (NEMT) 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 Expo side of the event, attendees will be able to survey the latest technology and services from vendors and enjoy food and beverages in the Expo Hall. For a complete list of exhibitors, click here.
In addition, TTA will be holding its annual meeting, electing new officers, and honoring its 2020 Executive of the Year and Driver of the Year.
With a keen eye toward safety, Mobilize 2020 will require all attendees to wear masks, and all events will be set up to ensure social distancing according to CDC guidelines. Meeting rooms will be cleaned and sanitized between sessions, and hand sanitizer will be available throughout the hotel. All food will be available as individual portions or served by hotel staff wearing hairnets, hats, and gloves. Disposable food service items, including utensils and dishes, will be used, and bottled water will be available instead of water stations.
To further ensure a safe event, all registrations must be completed online by October 26—no walk-up, on-site registrations will be allowed.
