The Australasian Fleet Management Association organises a Professional Development Forum program for South Australia throughout 2018. This event kicks off with breakfast and follows with discussions on topics chosen by the Chapter Committee based on members needs. The PDF’s are an ideal way of staying abreast of topical issues, networking with fellow fleet managers, connecting with potential clients, entertaining and reaffirming existing clients or taking the first step in discovering what it is like to be an AfMA Member. We encourage you to contact the office if you have any questions about this event.
Who Should Attend
Fleet managers, fleet coordinators, fleet administrators and any individual working to manage an organisation’s vehicles. You should also bring your upper management team, so they’ll be aware of the issues you face and need to plan for in the future.
Topic – Autonomous vehicle technology and trials update
Presented by Mark Borlace | RAA SA
AfMA is pleased to welcome Mark Borlace from the Royal Automotive Association to speak to us about the latest in mobility and automotive policy. Hear about the future of autonomous and connected vehicles and what it means for the city of Adelaide and South Australia generally.
Mark will provide an overview of emerging and existing autonomous vehicle technologies, and provide insights on how and where they are being trialled. This exciting session will also include a tour through the RAA facilities, as provided by Business Development Manager Rob Clapp.
How will vehicle connectivity change the way that fleet managers use and delegate the vehicles inside their organisation? What is being done within the industry to manage these industry changes both now and into the future?
Make sure you get along to hear from the RAA team about this exciting topic and what it could mean for your organisation in both the short and long term.
