2016 Auto Rental Summit Announces Agenda

Celebrating its fifth year, Auto Rental Summit (ARS) announces this year’s speakers and agenda, along with a new city and headquarters hotel. This year’s event will be held Oct. 24-25 at the B Resort & Spa near Orlando, Fla.

“We’re excited to be moving north to Orlando, a world-class destination, reachable with many direct domestic and international flights,” said Chris Brown, executive editor of Auto Rental News. “And wait until you see the new property — it’s upscale, modern, and boutique, and will serve the Summit well.”

Brown said the 2016 agenda will deliver on the event’s theme of “People, Process, and Profits.”

“ARS is not about legislative issues; it’s not Car Rental 101, or the future of car rental,” added Brown. “The Auto Rental Summit theme is about improving car rental operations. It’s about giving owners, managers, and their top employees the tools to achieve sustainability and directly improve their bottom line today.”

This year’s keynote presentation from Geoffrey Toffetti, president of Frontline Performance Group, asks attendees to examine this uncomfortable truth: “Employees don’t quit their job; they quit their boss.”
Toffetti will demonstrate how to hone leadership skills by defining a company’s core belief system and understanding key aspects of the employee mind-set.

Toffetti has delivered this message to senior management teams at Europcar, Universal Studios, Hilton Hotels, and its Waldorf Astoria brand.

“Geoffrey is a sought-after speaker worldwide on the topic of leadership,” Brown said. “Expect an inspirational message, along with take-home tools to improve employee engagement and drive peak performance.”

Returning for 2016, the Fleet Jam Session — a three-hour deep dive into fleet issues and solutions — kicks off the event Monday morning.
