What will your company look like in 10 years? It’s easy to dismiss the thought, because the outlook on the future keeps changing at a historic pace. But do you have a plan for five years, or even two?
The 2018 International Car Rental Show announces its closing keynote seminar, titled “Game Plan 2020 and Beyond: Preparing for Success in Disruptive Times.” This panel seminar will discuss the forces shaping the car rental operations of the near future, with specific guidance for independent and smaller operators.
“It’s easy to believe that the giant tech companies and the auto manufacturers themselves will dominate the transportation market,” says Chris Brown, executive editor of Auto Rental News. “But there will be a place for the savvy entrepreneur, and this seminar will expand on the possibilities.”
The closing keynote panel consists of Arun Kumar, a director at consulting firm AlixPartners with a specialization in transportation and mobility; Gaurav Kohli, founder of JustShareIt carsharing technology; Richard Lowden, founder and CEO at Green Motion International; and Andrew Rodriguez, vice president of Frontline Performance Group.
“The diverse viewpoints from these panelists will prove there are no ‘right’ answers — but the plethora of information you’ll receive will help to better guide your decisions,” Brown says.
The 2018 International Car Rental Show convenes April 15-17 at Bally’s Las Vegas.
Uber will be closing its self-driving vehicle testing operations in Arizona, due to mounting public pressure following a fatal accident involving one of its vehicles earlier this year.
