President Dwight Kines and the TLPA leadership invite you to join them in Phoenix for our 98th Annual Convention & Trade Show, October 31-November 4, 2016. This year's conference, titled "Fleet Forward," features an exciting new format, so be sure to look carefully at our agenda prior to making your travel arrangements. You're not going to want to miss anything.

Our Fleet Forward theme signifies the resurgence of licensed, local, for-hire passenger transportation. It is based on a new TLPA initiative, which seeks to inspire all fleet operators by sharing the new business practices and successes of their colleagues in TLPA.

This year's trade show will feature about 100 vendors showcasing the most advanced products and services available to help you run your business more efficiently. You will see the latest vehicles, computer hardware and software, insurance, dispatch systems, advertising, financing, credit card processing, mobile applications and much more. Whether you are a fleet operator or an industry supplier, participating in this prominent industry event will be critical to the continued revitalization of your business.

Now more than ever you need to seek out the information, ideas, people and resources that can help you more effectively run your business, market your services and move your company to the next level. This year's convention registration fee will include the operator tour, one breakfast, one lunch, two cocktail receptions and access to the open educational sessions and Trade Show. You may also purchase tickets to the optional events when you register online.
