Global Fleet.com has organised its first two-day regional Fleet Summit in Istanbul in early June to examine the emerging fleet market in Turkey, along with those in neighboring countries.
The inaugural event, which has the backing of TOKKDER, the Turkish Automotive Leasing and Rental Companies Association, is aimed at international and national fleet decision makers who want to understand more about the emerging fleet market in the region.
It is being held at the CVK Bosphorus Park hotel, close to the centre of Istanbul, and day one, Tuesday June 2, will focus on the key elements in today’s and tomorrow's Turkish and international fleet environment.
A series of four expert sessions will begin on the first morning with an understanding of the Turkish fleet market looking at its business specifics, its potential and the challenges and opportunities it presents. This will be followed by a session examining how Turkey can be integrated into an international fleet environment, considering the do’s and don’ts of internationalisation and globalisation and looking at the keys to success.
Following a networking lunch, the afternoon session will consider how to identify European and international trends influencing the Turkish market, and the impact for suppliers and fleet operators of issues such as residual values, taxation, the environment and market saturation.
The day’s final session will examine the move from the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to the Total Cost of Mobility (TCM), and look in detail at the changing elements within TCO and the implementation of an effective TCM model.
After a networking dinner at the end of day one, the next day, Wednesday June 3, will focus on the state of the fleet markets in four different countries within the region: Russia, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, and Romania.
The Summit will close following a networking lunch by early afternoon on day two.
Caroline Thonnon, Global Fleet CEO and head of business development, said: “Following the successful publication of our Guide to Fleet Management in Turkey, the international market asked us for a follow-up in the form of an educational and networking event. So we have organised this first regional Fleet Summit as a direct response to the requests of international and national fleet managers.
“We have chosen Istanbul as the setting because Turkey has been a crucial crossroads throughout history and is now more strategically important than ever. This inaugural regional Fleet Summit is a unique opportunity to network with your peers, share experience with top-notch fleet leaders and take away best practices based on fleet management successes.”
