2015 North American NGV Conference & Expo in Full Swing!
The 2015 North American NGV Conference & Expo at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado, on September 15–17 is on track to be the best NGV-centric event in the industry. Exhibit and sponsorship package sales are doing well and NGVAmerica encourages members, past participants and all other interested parties to continue to include the 2015 North American NGV Conference & Expo in their marketing plans for this year. The floor plan is filling fast with quality exhibitors and all should act quickly to get the best possible space location by contacting Sebastien David toll free at 844.620.3494 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A special thank you to all members supporting this endeavor and for showing attending conference registrants—including interested new fleet managers and fueling retailers—that the NGV industry is robust and advancing forward. And given the current market conditions, NGVAmerica believes that bringing members, customers and the greater industry together for a focused dialogue is more important than ever.
NGVAmerica has issued a call for nominations for the 23rd Annual NGV Achievement Awards, which will be presented on Tuesday, September 15 at the 2015 North American NGV Conference & Expo. The awards recognize individuals and organizations for their outstanding contributions to the advancement of natural gas as a vehicular fuel. They are awarded to stakeholders from all segments: industry equipment and service suppliers, policymakers, customers and clean air/clean transportation advocate-allies. Note that only NGVAmerica members may make nominations; although, nominees are not required to be NGVAmerica members. Deadline: Nominations are due Friday, July 17. Paperwork may be downloaded from the NGVAmerica website.
Also on Tuesday, NGVAmerica will introduce a repackaged version of the popular Market Development Peer Exchange (“Peer Exchange”) from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Peer Exchange has been renamed Inside Track: Meet the Vendors! and will provide all conference registrants with a venue to hear rapid fire mini-briefings from NGVAmerica members. The format will allow approximately 20 members about 7 minutes to introduce—with or without PowerPoint presentations—their technologies and services to audience participants. This venue is likened to “speed dating,” serving as a fast-paced compilation of NGV-specific topics of interest with the desired outcome to educate and generate additional opportunities of increased foot traffic to members’ exhibition space on the show floor. Inside Track: Meet the Vendors! is a first-come, first-served opportunity, and the limited time for this venue dictates that presenters must be exhibiting members. Reserve your spot now (a signed exhibition contract is required to receive a chance for this presentation opportunity).
Plenary and break out sessions will be finalized this week and published shortly; many high-level industry leaders have been interviewed to determine the most compelling and relevant subject matter for educational content. Energy is also being invested in creating marketing strategies to attract fleet management and fuel retailers, among other show attendee groups within the industry to impact attendance.
