FLEET suppliers will be shown the route to better fleet business in Europe during a major conference to be held in Brussels on February 8.

The Fleet News Europe Conference will play host to senior figures from European politics, business and fleet management who will give their expert advice and opinion on issues ranging from risk management to customer service.

They will be followed by Professor Peter Cooke, from Nottingham Business School, who will look at how suppliers can provide services that will help fleets improve their safety record and save lives. Nick Brownrigg, chief executive officer of Masterlease Group, and Anita de Groot-Hanegraaf, commodity sourcing manager, responsible for fleet, travel and HR, will speak on service for fleet customers.

The future of the car market will be the subject of presentations from Thomas Chieux, lead researcher of ICDP France, and James Allen, global head of sales for Jato.
