As LCT gets ready to head to the LCT Summit, this Sunday-Tuesday (May 17-19), the LCT Fast40 Group will reconvene for another panel session to discuss how a new generation of limo business is adapting to today's technological, cultural, and political landscapes.
This latest Fast 40 session will feature an all-new panel and will examine how aspects of limousine business that were done in an “old-school” way, can now be adapted with “new-school” technology and techniques. Companies can sharpen marketing efforts by focusing on Millennials as a single demographic, and dig deeper into preferences, lifestyles, and consumer habits, and chauffeured operations can use this data to better sell their services and promote their brands. Panelists will cover social media best practices and explain how operators can attract younger Millennial-age chauffeurs who are qualified for top-level work.
