Future of the Euro market in spotlight

A HOST of expert speakers on the European fleet industry will give their view on the future of the market during a major conference next year.

The Fleet News Europe Conference 2005 will take place at the Brussels Marriott Hotel on February 1 next year.

Topics to be covered include taxation in Europe, transport and traffic policy, car pricing and creating a European fleet policy.

Delegates will come away with a better understanding of the latest European Union policies and how they affect the vehicle leasing and rental industries, gain the knowledge to improve their pan-European and business expansion, maximise opportunities provided by an enlarged EU and exploit networking opportunities.

Speakers will give an insight into the current thinking within the EU with regards to taxation and will offer an insight into when barriers to trade are tackled. They will also discuss the proposed changes to transport and how the EU intends to prepare legislation on working time for drivers, fair conditions of employment for drivers, improving road transport monitoring and improving professional training for drivers.

Other questions answered will be how businesses can benefit from changes to legislation, and whether there are increased opportunities for cross-border supply offered by the proposed Service Directory.

Speakers will also chart the changes to new car prices in Europe and predict what might happen in the future.

Delegates at the event will also be guided through the process of establishing a fleet policy, with experts outlining the pitfalls and benefits that a well implemented and maintained policy can have.

The benefits of customer care excellence by sharing good practice will also go under the spotlight.

Speakers will outline the different customer service expectations across Europe and explain the importance of being aware of local customs.
