As we’ve detailed in the past few weeks, education is the heart of the CD/NLA Show. But in addition to our classroom-style sessions and interactive roundtables, we’re excited to offer attendees the opportunity to get a candid insight into our industry as well as vertical markets. Join us on Monday, October 23, at 12:30 p.m. for the State of the Industry, sponsored by Driving Transactions. Always one of our most-attended events—and usually standing-room-only—the State of the Industry provides a unique snapshot of the luxury ground transportation world.
This year, we’re thrilled to welcome two incredibly talented professionals, Dr. Sean Snaith, director of the Institute for Economic Forecasting at the University of Central Florida’s College of Business, and Suzanne Neufang, CEO of the Global Business Travel Association, one of the largest and most-respected organizations for the international corporate travel industry.
“I’m really excited about the direction we are going with our State of the Industry this year. We wanted to try something different this fall, and I’m elated that we did. I can’t wait to hear what these two powerhouses have to share with us,” says CD President Chris Weiss.
Quoted by virtually every renowned media outlet in the country, Snaith is a sought-after speaker known for his engaging and humorous presentations. He has built a national reputation for his unique ability to explain complex subject matter in a digestible manner. You can bet that he will answer your questions about the current economic forecast and how it relates to your operators. Meanwhile, as a transformation-focused executive, Neufang has led the travel industry through times of great change, holding high profile leadership roles for the past 20 years. Expect her to draw on her years of experience as an expert to offer her perspective into our industry’s important role in the corporate travel marketplace. We’re thrilled to present the opportunity for you to hear these two influential voices and learn from their knowledge.
And don’t forget, October is spooky season, so on Monday night, we serve up a scary good celebration with our Halloween Costume Party sponsored by ANB Trans, Centennial Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation, and Crown Worldwide Transportation. Dust off your creativity, tap into your inner ghoul, and conjure up your best looks for a heart-pounding evening of spooks and thrills. We’ll be making spirits fright with our bewitching drinks and devilishly delectable fare while you dance the night away to our spook-tacularly captivating DJ’ed music. Mingle with your fellow attendees, snap a few photos in our photo booth, and forge relationships that will endure long after the masks come off.
