NATIONAL LIMOUSINE ASSOCIATION HOSTS NO OPERATOR LEFT BEHIND VIRTUAL SUMMIT

Leaders in the Industry Gather to Address the Future of Travel

 

May 21 (New York, NY)  The National Limousine Association (NLA), the leading non-profit organization responsible for and dedicated to representing the interests of the private chauffeur transportation industry, proudly hosted their first virtual summit via Facebook Live, called No Operator Left Behind Virtual Summit. Produced by Limo University, the Summit addressed topics ranging from the state of the travel industry in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to business tips for operators and best practices for the future. Hosted by NLA President, Robert Alexander and Founder of Limo University, Bill Faeth, the Summit drew thousands of viewers from across the country and around the world, making it the largest Summit in the NLA’s history.

Alexander and Faeth were joined by a series of guest experts, from noted physicians to business and industry experts including Roger Dow, President and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, who endorsed the belief that the chauffeured car industry is the safer, preferred choice as the nation looks to travel once again. Compared to other options like public transit or ride-sharing, the Summit served to demonstrate that luxury ground transportation goes above and beyond to give riders peace of mind through a number of encouraged safety and prevention practices including thorough cleaning, eliminating or reducing physical contact, and removal of all non-essential materials in the vehicles.

 

“Our industry continues to face an extraordinary moment that may redefine how we travel forever,” said Robert Alexander, President of the NLA. “With change comes uncertainly. The goal of the No Operator Left Behind Virtual Summit is simple: to provide a resource and reiterate to the industry that the NLA is dedicated to providing guidance through insights, expertise and open dialogue. It is our goal to set the precedent that will help guide our industry through this crisis together.”

Several notable speakers joined the Summit to discuss the current crisis from their various professional perspectives. These speakers included, Angela Layton, CMP, CMM, Senior Meeting Planner, National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, Catherine Chaulet, Chief Executive Officer at Global DMC Partners, Sara McCall, Owner of Stunning and Brilliant Events, Jay Karen, Chief Executive Officer at National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA), Chris Weiss, President & Publisher of Chauffeur Driven, Staurt Ross, CEO of Red Light Management, Dr. James Doub, Infectious Disease Specialist, and Dr. Lucy McBride, Physician.

“We must continue to stand together and provide these valuable resources for our members and our industry,” said Founder of Limo University, Bill Faeth. “While some may consider a virtual summit an encumbrance, we see it as an opportunity to continue our mission to keep operators and drivers informed, while embracing technology and overcoming the challenge of distance with the power of community.”
