Company car on Europe's agenda

PAN-European fleet, rental and leasing will be under the spotlight at this year's Automotive Congress Europe to be held in Amsterdam on November 23/24. Organised by Emap Automotive, publisher of Fleet NewsNet, the congress is being supported by the European Car and Truck Rental Association and will be held at the Hotel Okura, Amsterdam. It is expected to attract more than 200 leading figures from vehicle manufacturers, rental and leasing companies and businesses associated with the automotive industry - in particular company cars - as well as fleet decision-makers.

Topics will include competition and regulation, taxation, pricing, alternative fuels, technology and rental and leasing. Speakers will include Freddie Aldous, president of ECATRA; David Kemp, European director of ABN AMRO Bank; Francois Boulard, managing director of Lease Plan International; and Dr Michael Kern, chief operating officer of Europcar International.

To attend the two-day Automotive Congress Europe costs £520, or £310 for one day, with bookings made before October 15 discounted to £440 and £270 respectively. These delegate rates do not include accommodation which must be booked separately through the Hotel Okura (special agreed rates can be obtained by quoting 'Automotive Congress Europe'). To book your seat at the congress, phone fleet events co-ordinator Charlotte Cunningham on 01733 467038, or click here for an email form and more information.
