The UK’s five biggest leasing companies - Lex Autolease, LeasePlan, Alphabet, Arval and ALD Automotive - will be exhibiting at Fleet Management Live, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on October 19 and 20.

Fleet Management Live is Fleet News’s major event for company car decision-makers, whether they are traditional fleet operators or procurement, finance, HR, travel and facilities professionals who also have fleet responsibilities.

The two-day event, which had more than 1,000 attendees last year, offers a host of networking opportunities, as well as best practice workshops, seminars, and advice clinics to keep company car decision-makers up to date with the latest developments in fleet and to help them tackle their fleet challenges.

The UK’s five biggest leasing companies will also be joined by Zenith (number seven in last year’s FN50), who will once more be hosting the funding best practice session, Multileasing, Pendragon Vehicle Management, TCH Leasing, and Venson Automotive Solutions.  

Making their debut appearances will be Daimler Fleet Management, Total Motion Vehicle Management and Marshall Leasing.

A spokesman for the UK’s largest leasing company, Lex Autolease, said: “Lex Autolease focuses on using its insight and expertise in fleet leasing to deliver real benefits for its customers’ operations.

“Events such as Fleet Management Live, provide us with the platform to share this knowledge in an engaging face-to-face environment with a wide audience.  Our fleet experts will be at the event, discussing how organisations can tackle some of the main fleet issues in order to drive their business forward.”

Both ALD Automotive and Alphabet, meanwhile, will be looking to discuss mobility options with company car decision-makers. ALD will also be hosting the telematics best practice session.

David Yates, marketing director at ALD, said: “The event will enable fleet decision-makers to find out more about ALD’s Smart Mobility solution and how it can help businesses looking to cut costs and improve practicality for their employees through an all-embracing solution.

“Using a dedicated team of specialists, the Smart Mobility team can help businesses introduce more effective mobility solutions across all areas of fleet operation, covering everything from leased cars, short-term rentals, salary sacrifice, grey fleet management and personal leasing through to alternatively fuelled vehicles (AFVs) and motorbikes or scooters – an increasingly popular option with city-based businesses.

“At Fleet Management Live, ALD will also be talking to fleets about large-scale corporate mobility projects and discussing how it has helped one major UK business implement a completely new travel scheme and switch company drivers to AFVs, fit charging points at homes and offices, integrate car club and car sharing schemes, a Bike to Work initiative and other smarter ways of working.”

Attendees will be able to speak with ALD’s telematics specialist Rhys Harrhy to find out how its ProFleet2 technology can determine the suitability of AFVs for fleet operators.

Carly Pieslak, marketing manager at Alphabet, said: “The agenda is very much in the attendees’ hands and we are happy to discuss and answer any questions they may have about their fleet and business mobility as a whole. Last year, we enjoyed having lots of great discussions about all sorts of mobility related areas and are looking forward to the same again this year.”

Attendees will also have the chance to meet a number of key manufacturers, with Vauxhall confirming its first appearance at the event this year.
