Auto Rental News and the American Car Rental Association (ACRA) are pleased to announce the closing keynote address for the 2013 Car Rental Show (CRS).

Titled “The Auto Industry and Car Rental: Volume, Pricing, Trends,” the closing keynote will be presented by Tom Webb, chief economist at Manheim, Ricky Beggs, vice president and managing editor at Black Book, and Alec Gutierrez, senior market analyst of automotive insights for Kelley Blue Book.

These top analysts will discuss the moving parts of the auto industry and the forces affecting fleet costs this year and beyond.

This is a can’t-miss close to our show.”
