The 1999 Fleet Show is to be held in Halls 2, 3 and 3a at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, on April 27-29, and to help fleet decision-makers plan ahead the new website offers regularly updated show-specific news, a pre-registration section, exhibitor listing, and travel information. Developed by Emap Automotive, publisher of Fleet NewsNet, the site also features information on exhibitors, and an on-line search facility to access fleet topics ranging from alternative fuels to VAT guidance.
Event director Keith Dalton said: 'We had a Fleet Show area on Fleet NewsNet in 1997 and last year, and the number of visitors to that section demonstrated clearly there was a case for a Fleet Show website in its own right. Fleet NewsNet averages about 550,000 'hits' and 20,000 individual user sessions a month, and there's no reason why the show site shouldn't attract similar numbers as it continues to develop with our portfolio of events.'
David Goodchild, publisher - electronic development at Emap Automotive, said: 'The new site reflects the rapidly growing use of the internet as a business tool, and we have used similar criteria in its development to that which made Fleet NewsNet such a success - it's quick, uncluttered, easy to use, and packed with useful fleet-specific information.'
