LCT moves its elite event for operators to Chicago this year, cuts rates in half, doubles capacity, and gives participants free access to BusCon.
TORRANCE, Calif. — LCT Magazine has launched its LCT LEADERSHIP SUMMIT WEB SITE and is accepting registrations for the executive style conference on Sept. 28-30 in Chicago.
The LCT Summit will be held at the FAIRMONT CHICAGO MILLENIUM PARK HOTEL in downtown. Participants will get free access on the last day of the Summit to the BUSCON EXPO at the nearby Navy Pier, which is sponsored by Metro Magazine, also published by LCT’s parent company, Bobit Business Media.
LCT has cut the Summit admission price in half compared to previous LCT Summits. The fee for NLA members will be $599 per person if registering on or before Sept. 3. For non-NLA members, the fee is $699. Hotel rates start at $179 per night.
Participation will be limited to 200 attendees and to OPERATORS and their spouses/significant others. Suppliers can attend only if they are sponsors of the Summit.
The upscale LCT LEADERSHIP SUMMIT has been the industry's only intimate forum that focuses exclusively on the changing trends of the limousine and chauffeured transportation industry. Designed as an intensive workshop for the sharpest and most dynamic minds, the LCT Leadership Summit promotes breakthrough ideas while providing cutting edge education from experts inside and outside the industry. It also provides relaxed networking and social events that bring together some of the industry’s key movers and shakers.
Details on sessions, topics, speakers, and social events for the redesigned, refocused Summit will be announced in coming weeks.
In its pervious format, the LCT Summit was held at luxury hotels in Miami Beach for most years during the 2000s. The last Summit cost $1,200 per person and was limited to 100 attendees. It was canceled last year due to the effects of a severe recession on the chauffeured transportation industry.
