SCANTrivia™ is an interactive game you can play during I&E Virtual with your own smartphone. Get ready for fierce competition and big prizes!

View the list of participating exhibitors and event partners so you know which virtual booths to visit locations to earn points. Within each location, you simply scan the QR codes, answer the question(s) shown, and earn points. Some booths have more than one question, and partner booths have questions worth double points. The more points you earn, the more chances you have to win great prizes. A good strategy can get you ahead of the game in no time!  

Visit the game's information page for more details!

  
With a focus on growing results through expanding your vision, motivational expert Kevin Brown will enhance your skills of being your best when it matters the most. At the heart of Kevin's message is a simple, yet powerful philosophy for life that drives every thought, every action, and, ultimately, every result we achieve both personally and professionally. 
 
Achieve greater results by eliminating "ordinary" thinking and mastering the habit of excellence.
 
Own the moments that matter by taking responsibility for your attitude, your actions, and your results.
 
Create meaningful relationships and deliver an extraordinary experience for every "customer" at work and at home.

Visit the expo booths to research and learn about new products and technologies. Each expo booth is available to socialize and meet with like-minded fleet professionals. Your time is valuable, so consider scheduling a specific time with a supplier using the booth scheduler feature and book a dedicated test or video chat session with a new supplier or reconnect with a current one.

Find your tribe! Connect with your peers and pose questions to our experts. These community-themed lounges will help you find others with fleets like yours. 

Seven lounges are available:

  • Corporate
  • Government
  • Law Enforcement
  • University/Education
  • Utility/Telecomm
  • CAFM Certification Center
  • NAFA Community Center

Create individual or small group text and video chats for friends and new colleagues away from the larger discussions to personalize the experience.

Immediately following each session, the session moderator will lead a 30-minute interactive discussion.

Interact with the presenters and your fellow fleet professionals by using the chat box to ask your questions and share your experiences.

I&E Virtual is excited to welcome 70 exhibitors to showcase their products virtually! 
 
When you log in, you'll arrive in the Lobby and find navigation bars at the top and bottom of the main screen.
 
The top navigation bar provides access to the day's events, upcoming events, and on-demand content when it becomes available. There's also a fun "teleport" option that allows you to move from one part of the platform to another, such as the NAFA Library, chat lounges, the auditorium and more.
 
The bottom navigation bar includes access to all that and more. The AGENDA icon contains all that event information from the top bar, but there are also icons that direct you to the virtual map, chat lounges, forums, as well as your profile and any favorites you've selected from the program. 
 
You'll also notice NAFA partner, media sponsor, and exhibitor logos on the Lobby page. Just click on them to check out their booths and interact with them.
 
Don't forget to complete your profile! 
A huge part of networking on the virtual platform is having a complete profile, so be sure to click on the PROFILE icon in the bottom menu and fill in your information and a nice photo if you have one handy.
 
Need help? Click on the HELP icon in the bottom menu at any time. We also have a few virtual tools and tips posted on the website.
