The roundtables are back!
The 2013 Auto Rental Summit, which takes place Nov. 4-5 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., announces this year’s roundtable discussions.
Sticking to last year’s unique format, roundtable participants will be divided into working groups based on discussion topic. Each working group will have a problem to solve together, and then each group will present their solutions to all attendees.
The roundtables will take place on Monday, Nov. 4, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
