Thanks for attending the spring 2022 CVB Summit

No matter where you get your news, you know the term MOBILITY is mentioned a lot. But, you may be like many others, asking, “What does it really mean and how does it impact my piece of the commercial vehicle space?” 

Our Commercial Vehicle Summit - Fall 2022 will offer many perspectives on what MOBILITY means and the impact it’s having in the commercial vehicle industry. With a lineup that includes experts from data/market research firms, to vehicle manufacturers, to upfitters, to finance providers and venture capitalists, to fleet management and small business solutions companies, to commercial dealership executives, we’ll cover the full spectrum. 

Attend this two-day virtual event that will provide you with the most comprehensive insight on commercial mobility you’ll find anywhere, and come away with information that will keep you ahead of the curve (and the competition).
