GFX Named One of the Fastest Growing Trade Shows

Bobit Business Media’s Government Fleet Expo & Conference (GFX) has been named one of the fastest growing conferences of 2018, according to Trade Show Executive. This is GFX’s fourth time receiving the honor, having been on the list in 2017, 2016, and 2014.  This year, GFX landed on the list in all three potential categories  — Fastest 50 by Net Square Feet of Exhibit Space, Fastest 50 by Exhibiting Companies, and Fastest 50 by Total Attendance.

GFX, held annually in June, is going into its 12th year.  The event is the most trusted industry resource for news, training, and information and is backed by Government Fleet magazine, a publication of Bobit Business Media, which was recently acquired by Gemspring Capital, a middle-market private equity firm. Designed for fleet managers, procurement specialists, analysts, maintenance supervisors, and others who work with fleets, attendees receive fleet-specific training, connect with peers in the fleet community and discuss challenges and solutions, and get hands-on with the latest vehicles and technology.

“Government Fleet Expo & Conference is a testament to Bobit’s unwavering commitment to providing our influential audiences with well-crafted events that provide industry-specific education and training while connecting buyers and sellers,” said Richard Rivera, CEO of Bobit Business Media. “Bobit owns more than 20 events, and we expect to see more of those on this list in the years to come as we continue to focus on growing our trade shows and expanding Bobit’s footprint in our various markets.”

This year’s GFX is being held in New Orleans from June 17-20. Agenda topics include fleet foundations, technology solutions and your future fleet, equipment, improving operations, and motivating staff members.
