Overview

What is GFX?
Government Fleet Expo & Conference (GFX), now in its 12th year, is the largest annual conference of public fleets in the nation. Attendees can:

  • Receive fleet-specific training geared toward their specific needs
  • Connect with peers in the fleet community and discuss daily challenges and solutions
  • Get hands-on with the latest vehicles and technologies for the industry

GFX is designed for fleet managers, procurement specialists, analysts, maintenance supervisors, and others who work with fleets. Attendees will leave with new ideas, knowledge about new vehicles and technologies, steps they can take to improve their fleets and save taxpayer dollars, and new colleagues they can call on for guidance.

GFX is brought to you by the publishers of Government Fleet magazine, the most trusted industry resource for news, training and information.
