Our Tuesday morning sessions kick off with Remote Work Is Here to Stay: What Does That Mean for Your Business? We have news for you: remote work continues to be a rising trend even in our industry, and it could be beneficial for both you and your team. Moderator Robyn Goldenberg of Strategy Leaders and speakers Gary Arrington of Party Over Here and Dave Uziel of Urban Worldwide each run their own remote operations, and they will provide an update on best practices for hiring and managing off-site employees and offer tangible takeaways to apply to your business.
Motorcoaches and larger vehicles are an investment that can have a big payoff if you play it right—but staying on top of regulations is a must. On Tuesday morning, Join Speaker Danielle Smith of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) for Bus Like a Boss, a session that will address some of the more pressing issues facing our industry in 2022, including top violations and how to avoid them, Entry-Level Driver Training, emergency egress requirements on specialized vehicles, and more. Whether you’re a motorcoach newbie or just want a refresher on FMCSA regs, this session should be on your list.
The sessions continue Tuesday with Retail Pivots: Five Ways That Operators Have Adapted to the Changing Landscape. Moderated by CD/NLA Education Committee Co-chair Jason Sharenow of Broadway Elite Worldwide, join five industry operators as they share how you can maximize your profits in the broad retail landscape. Learn how these operators have successfully shifted strategies to market to retail customers.
On Wednesday, we conclude our educational programming with a session that tackles one of the hottest topics in ground transportation: Electric Vehicles. In our session Embracing Change—The Pros & Cons of EVs, Tiffany Hinton of Motev and Simon Chen of Eight Black Transport will share their real-world numbers on how integrating EVs into their fleets has worked for them, the pros and cons, customer and driver feedback, and more. They will also address issues concerning range anxiety and reliability.
And while you’re using the app to plan your CD/NLA Show experience, don’t forget to check out our after-hours networking events. On Monday night, we’re activating our DeLorean time machine for a return to radder times. Back by popular demand is our Totally Awesome ’80s Party. The DJ’ed music and quick bites—not to mention our endless drinks—will transport you to those days when big hair and pagers ruled and “zoom” wasn’t the dreaded virtual meeting platform. Bring your neon duds, Miami Vice blazer, old concert shirts, Wayfarer shades, or any other accessory that screams 1980s, because, no duh, the Totally Awesome ’80s Party is one you won’t want to skip.
