Service companies see show as a vital forum

SERVICE companies have voiced their support for Fleet Show 2000 as a forum for establishing contacts and winning new business. As the build-up starts to next year's show, the UK's leading fleet service companies are gearing up to take part in the event which has been refined to take account of the needs of both exhibitors and visiting fleet decision makers.

Once again the show will be heavily business-focused, enabling service companies to make the most of the opportunity to win new contracts and meet existing clients with their stands concentrated at the heart of the event. Service company stands will be located around the central area of the exhibition. One feature at the show will be the 'Fleet Show Hub' - a new concept featuring areas conducive to networking.

Other features will include a recruitment corner, a European section and a venue to meet the Fleet News, Fleet NewsNet and Fleet Car Business editorial teams. There will also be a business centre equipped with faxes, phones and e-mail services and a 'rest and recuperation' area providing hot and cold refreshments. In addition, organiser Emap Automotive is also keen to develop an appointments service to benefit both exhibitor and visitor interaction.

Solicitors Amery-Parkes debuted at last year's show and is gearing up for a return in 2000 with partner David Faithful saying: 'Last year the quality of the visitors was high - they were the decision-makers we needed to see and we built up our connections.'
