International Car Rental Show Announces “Lightning Rounds”

Instead of an hour-long seminar on one topic, how about four mini–seminars on different subjects, packed into an hour and 15 minutes?

The 2015 International Car Rental Show introduces “lightning rounds,” consisting of 15-minute presentations that will deliver insight into new products and services, best practices and new trends benefitting the car rental process.

The lightning rounds will take place on Tuesday April 14 from 10:45 a.m. to noon. Eight lightning rounds will be presented in two concurrent sessions, four to a room.

“Buckle up and hold on,” says Chris Brown, executive editor of Auto Rental News. “The lightning-round sessions will give operators the information they need in a condensed time frame on a variety of topics. This is part of our commitment to deliver the most educational content in the show’s history.”

The topics are:

Room One
•    Using the Collateral Source Rule in Damage Recovery – David Purinton, PurCo Fleet Services, Inc.
•    How to Present Your Business to a Lender – Wayne Yocum, Automotive Finance Corp.
•    Using Retail Dealer Incentives to Maximize Fleet Procurement – David Castro, MBA, M.M, Lipton Toyota
