Gerry Keaney, BVRLA

Limited tickets remain for next month's BVRLA Industry Conference.

Two-thirds of tickets have already been sold for the event, which takes place on December 3 and is supported by CAP and KeeResources.

The Conference will be held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull and offers a great opportunity to network and debate key issues.

“This year’s event is shaping up to be one of our best-ever conferences,” said BVRLA chief executive Gerry Keaney (pictured).

“Delegates will have the opportunity to network and debate key issues, and we’ve assembled a line-up of expert speakers who will discuss the most topical issues facing our industry.”

The theme for this year’s conference is Air Quality, Energy and Emissions. As well as a keynote address from Gerry Keaney, the day will feature a panel session with appearances from Transport Minister Andrew Jones, green-energy guru Dr Jeremy Leggett, low-carbon transport analyst Alex Stewart and CAP’s Dylan Setterfield.

Other panel sessions include:

  • Future Mobility Trends – Frost & Sullivan mobility consultant Graeme Banister will set the scene before asking leasing experts from Enterprise, FMG and LeasePlan to share the vision for their businesses.
  • Customer Service in the Digital Age – In today’s era of connected vehicles, apps and smartphones, do businesses need to take a more digital approach to dealing with customers? BlaBlaCar will outline its social media success story, while ACFO’s Caroline Sandall will give a fleet perspective. 
  • Where next for Whole Life Costs? – With a growing demand for ultra-low emission vehicles and ‘mobility solutions’, does the way our industry sells and manages its services need to change? Industry expert Colin Tourick and automotive data specialists KeeResources will lead this challenging debate.

Anyone in the fleet industry may attend the event, and tickets cost from £256.
