THE 2023 NACD PROCUREMENT and FLEET GROUP CONFERENCE

Sponsor Registration is Sold Out & Closed
Sponsor Materials Due: 8/18/23
Trade Show – Wednesday 10/11/23

WHY SHOULD WE ATTEND?

For those of you who are not familiar with our groups, we consist of the Procurement and Fleet Professionals (Directors, Managers, Admins, etc.) for the Caterpillar dealers of North America. We hold this conference each year to share ideas, best practices, and network with each other. In recent years, we have incorporated a Vendor Trade & Truck Show to meet and network with current and potential vendors. We have found that having you as a part of our conference has allowed us to cultivate strong partnerships and bring many new opportunities back to the dealers we represent. It has also been a great pathway to see the products you represent and to be able to explore those first hand. Taking part in this event creates a unique opportunity to have a concentrated audience of North American Caterpillar dealers and the Procurement & Fleet Professionals that represent them.

WHAT ARE THE DETAILS?

This year’s conference will be at the Hilton Denver Inverness and hosted by Wagner CAT.
