Fleet News awards – have you entered yet?

FLEETS now have less than a month to enter the prestigious Fleet News Awards 2005.

The closing date for entries is January 4 and the awards ceremony will take place on March 16 at the Grosvenor House, in Park Lane, London.

Last week, we revealed the panel that will be choosing the 2005 winners.

They have been chosen for their expertise in fleet management, knowledge of industry issues and understanding of how to compare suppliers. Full details about which categories each member of the panel is judging, along with their backgrounds, will be posted on FNN.

Publication of details of the panel before the judging takes place is part of a commitment to making the 2005 awards the best in the history of the ceremony. Fleet managers wanting to enter can simply log on to www.fleetnewsnet.co.uk and click on the awards logo before entering a few brief details. Short-listed fleet managers will be invited for interview in February.

Service companies should have received a form by email in the past two weeks for their chosen categories. Requests for additional forms or information on entering the Best Website category can be sent to our awards email address at fleetnewsawards@emap.com.
