AltWheels Fleet Day is the largest meeting of corporate and municipal Fleet Managers on the East Coast. Come see and hear the latest in fleet transportation technologies, alternative fuels and fleet management practices.

The day consists of panels, exhibits, and vehicles offering a showcase of alternative transportation solutions — from concept vehicles, to vehicles that are available and affordable today. This year's Fleet Day will be hosted at the Four Points by Sheraton hotel and conference center on Route 1 in Norwood, MA in their state-of-the-art conference space with a large outdoor vehicle display.
