Top speakers line up for our conference

A HOST of expert speakers have been announced for the Fleet News Europe Conference 2005.

It will take place at the Brussels Marriott Hotel on February 1 next year and topics to be covered include taxation in Europe, transport and traffic policy, car pricing and creating a European fleet policy. Maciej Szczepaniak, editor-in-chief of Polish publication Flota and Flota Auto News, will profile opportunities in the expanded EU and Nick Margetts of Jato Dynamics will host a presentation of car pricing across Europe and how to make money out of fleet vehicles.

Gareth Wilsher, fleet manager Europe, Middle East and Africa for AT&T, will present a case study on making cross border fleet management work, Gregoire Chove, director, larger corporates group at Arval will talk about whether pan-European fleet business is possible and a representative from software company Epyx will present on whether a web-based service is the perfect cross-border solution. Other speakers will be announced shortly. 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 on taxation and will offer an insight into when barriers to trade are tackled.

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 be put under the spotlight.

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