COVID-19 FAQs

School Bus Fleet ConneX (SBFX) 2020 has been postponed due to the Coronavirus and government travel guidance

Monday, March 16, 2020

We have been in close communication with our key partners among others. After a great deal of discussion, we have jointly decided to postpone the 2020 School Bus Fleet ConneX (SBFX). The safety and health of our attendees and partners is of paramount importance at this time. With that in mind, please stay tuned for more information from Bobit Business Media concerning our updated plans. 

SBFX has been committed to observing the recommendations put forth by public health officials since the beginning of this unprecedented situation. The latest guidance released by the White House Coronavirus Task Force, broadened the recommendations to consider postponing meetings and limiting attendance for any American. Therefore, the current environment makes it impossible for us to hold a successful event for our attendees and sponsors.
