2024 NACD PROCUREMENT and FLEET GROUP CONFERENCE

Registration will open March 4, 2024

WHY SHOULD WE ATTEND?

We are 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. The group is small but powerful – our attendees are the decision makers and dealer leaders for their respective areas. Our attendees are often split equally between procurement and fleet roles. For details on our typical conference attendance numbers, see our Conference History.

The conference includes a Trade Show to meet and network with current and potential vendors. Having you as a part of our conference allows us to see and explore the products you represent, cultivate strong partnerships, and bring many new opportunities back to the dealers we represent. 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.

In addition to your sponsorship, we have great additional opportunities to showcase your company during the conference:

Sponsor Selection Process

All sponsor company registrations are due on 6/28. However, registration closes when 50 sponsors have been reached (first come basis). Immediately following, the submissions will be provided to the NACDPFG Board of Directors, Procurement Committee, and Fleet Committee for review.

  • Hot Metal Bridge Sponsor Selection – Of the companies that registered for this top-level sponsorship, 3 fleet-focused companies and 3 procurement-focused companies will be selected for the 6 spots. Preference is given to companies who will have 40-min presentations including new products or updates that are urgent or timely.
  • Additional Attendees – These requests are almost always approved, but reviewed to ensure space is available.
  • Smithfield Street Bridge Add-Ons – These are assigned on a first come basis. When an opportunity has hit maximum participation, it will be marked as sold out.

All sponsors will be notified by 7/12 via email of the selection outcomes.

Sponsor Attendee Registration

Every sponsor has 4 attendees included in the package. Each of these 4 attendees must be individually registered by 8/9.  Registration includes contact information and headshot upload used in the conference directory. After 8/9, sponsor representatives listed in the directory cannot be changed. Make sure to register the individuals expected to be at the event to get the most out of the directory listing.

Submissions for Artwork or Add-On Details

Sponsor logos are uploaded during the initial company registration. All other artwork or required materials (if applicable) listed for submission are due on 8/9 to NACDProcurementFleet@nacdpfg.com.

The NACD Procurement & Fleet Group recognizes, that there may be unforeseen changes to our event should a major issue arise (e.g. pandemic, labor strike, weather disaster, etc.). If we find this to be the case, we will work to reduce our fees regarding sponsorship and look to refund some of the sponsor dollars which were provided to take part in our event. At this time the NACD Procurement & Fleet Group looks to hold its Annual Conference/Trade show in person without delay or restriction.

90 day cancellation policy: If registration is cancelled more than 90 days before the start of the conference (on or before July 2, 2024), a 100% refund (minus all processing fees) will be issued.

90-30 day cancellation policy: If registration is cancelled between 90-30 days before the start of the conference (between July 3 – August 31, 2024), a 50% refund (minus all processing fees) will be issued. 

30 day cancellation policy: If registration is cancelled within 30 days of the start of the conference (between September 1 – 30, 2024), no refund will be issued.

The NACDPFG cannot THANK YOU enough for your interest in sponsorship & support.
