Fleet News

Fleet News set for an important year

2007 is set to be the most important and exciting in the 28-year history of Fleet News.

Work has already started on a new website for the FN50. The FN50 are the 50 biggest leasing companies in Britain (by funded fleet size) and the new website will provide innovative ways of researching leasing companies and contacting them.

But all contract hire and leasing companies can be involved. There will be a section on the website for the FN500, which will also include brokers. For more information about the FN50 website, contact Niki Lancaster on 01733 468245.

In June Fleet News will be presenting Company Car In Action at Millbrook Proving Ground. This is a drive and decide event where fleet decision-makers have the opportunity to test important new fleet cars at the exciting Bedfordshire track.

The major manufacturers will be providing cars for you to drive over the twisty alpine course, the high-speed bowl and an off-road course.

The event takes place on June 19, 20 and 21 and if you would like to be added to the mailing list for more information, send your contact details to companycar@emap.com.

But before any of this, there is the Fleet News European Conference in Brussels, a must for all fleet executives with a pan-European view. This takes place on February 7.

Our hugely successful Business Forum moves north, following the popular dual locations for Hit for Six. The Business Forum is like speed-dating for fleet managers, who get the opportunity to meet suppliers face-to-face in a well-managed appointment timetable. The De Vere Oulton Hall near Leeds is the place to be on February 19, 20 and 21.

The Fleet News Spring Conference is on May 15 at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham.
