SANTA MONICA, Calif. — October 27, 2022 — Organizers of the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo today announced the opening of early bird registration, as well as the nomination process for its 2023 Fleet Awards. Now in its 12th year, ACT Expo is the official annual meeting place for fleet transportation executives focused on achieving both economic and environmental sustainability. More than 8,500 attendees are anticipated to participate as the event moves to the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California from May 1-4, 2023, with Daimler Truck North America, Penske Transportation Solutions, and Shell returning as the event’s presenting sponsors.
The four-day conference will feature executive panels, workshops, and keynotes that provide fleet operators real-world insights into the major trends, unprecedented funding opportunities, and innovative technologies transforming the commercial transportation sector. The opportunity to submit speaker abstracts for dynamic case studies and compelling presentations on advancements in clean vehicles and renewable fuels, advanced energy management, fueling infrastructure, and the regulatory and funding landscape closes on November 2, 2022.
“Fleet operators are facing immense pressure from both regulators and customers to decarbonize their operations, while simultaneously needing to maintain reliable and profitable operations,” said Erik Neandross, chief executive officer at Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA), the nation’s leading clean transportation and energy consulting firm and the producer of ACT Expo. “ACT Expo provides the best opportunity for these fleet executives to gain hands-on access to the array of commercially available and developing solutions, to hear lessons learned from early adopters, to discover financial incentives to reduce total cost of ownership, and make the connections needed to successfully deploy a low- or zero-emission fleet.”
