Omnitracs announced that former Texas Gov. Rick Perry will deliver the keynote address at its annual user conference—Omnitracs Outlook 2016: Innovation for the Road Ahead—at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas (Jan. 31-Feb. 3). He is scheduled to speak on Monday, Feb. 1, from 8:45-9:45 a.m. CST.
Perry joins Joseph DeLorenzo, director, office of compliance and enforcement for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), in the lineup of speakers for the conference.
“Year after year at our user conference, we look for ways to build an event itinerary—complete with compelling speaking slots and breakout sessions—that delivers significant ROI and actionable insights to help fleets improve operational efficiency, safety and regulatory compliance,” said John Graham, CEO. “The addition of Rick Perry, a nationally-recognized public figure, to our program as keynote speaker underscores Omnitracs’ ongoing commitment to excellence in service and solutions in the transportation industry. Having served 14 years as governor of the nation’s second largest state, Perry will weigh in on current events and share what he’s learned from his extensive executive and legislative experiences.”
Considered the “don’t miss” industry gathering of the year, Omnitracs said its Outlook 2016 will offer previews of several new Omnitracs products and peer-to-peer networking opportunities for fleet customers across all Omnitracs’ product portfolio.
“United by a consistent thematic element—Innovation for the Road Ahead—the conference will serve as a forum for fleet executives, managers and power users to engage with product experts, specialized third-party technology providers and industry thought leaders,” the company said. “There will be countless opportunities to learn first-hand about emerging technologies and trend forecasts within each coverage area serviced by Omnitracs—compliance, safety and security, productivity, planning and delivery, data and analytics, and innovations.”
