Fleet Expo 2001, a unique event serving all commercial fleets and especially accomodating smaller ones, will be held Sept. 23-25 at Rosemont Convention Center in Chicago, Ill.

Fleet managers will have the opportunity to meet and talk with dozens of current and potential suppliers and to check out the latest fleet products and services on the exhibit floor. 2002 Models Available for Viewing and Driving in World's Largest Ride & Drive Vehicle manufacturers will be showing hot new 2002 model year vehicles, and in a hands-on event which is one of the most popular and unique features of Fleet Expo, attendees will be able to take part in a Ride & Drive program held when the exhibits have closed on the last day of the Expo. Sedans, trucks, vans, and specialty vehicles will be included in the world's largest Ride & Drive program.
