Fleet Management Live: one day left to save lives, save money, become a champion in the boardroom



One day to save a life, to become a champion in the boardroom (and to your drivers); a day to maximise the effectiveness of your business.

Yesterday hundreds of fleet decision-makers attended the first day of the biggest show in the sector, Fleet Management Live at the Birmingham NEC, taking advantage of the critical information that can prove stepping stones to the achievement of the above goals.

The two-day show is free to attend and is packed with more than 100 exhibitors.

Plus there are eight best practice sessions covering many aspects of the fleet industry.

With today the final day, visitors will be able to meet key suppliers and question the experts on everything from the future of company cars to practical advice for meeting your fleet’s needs.

HR and finance professionals are welcome, alongside fleet managers and decision makers, and special seminars will be held in the Fleet Insight Theatre to cater for all levels of experience across all sizes of business.

For industry beginners, or those wanting to learn a little more about the basics, a Breakfast for Beginners session will take place hosted by the Institute of Car Fleet Management.

Fleets can keep up to date with the latest learnings in best practice sessions. 

Led by subject specialists, these small interactive sessions will offer practical guidance to fleet operators looking to implement effective policies and processes in their organisations. Each session takes place twice-daily.

Ask Nigel, the regular Fleet News help section, will be featured live with fleet veteran Nigel Trotman on hand to help solve all dilemmas - and you can submit questions beforehand, while ACFO will be hosting a debate on business mobility.

Plus visitors can book a 30-minute session with the Expense Reduction Analysts fuel team to get an unbiased review of their fuel buying policy.

The latest models from a number of manufacturers including Audi, BMW, Vauxhall and Volvo, will be on display. And visitors will get a first look at the new Land Rover Discovery and the 10th generation Honda Civic.

    The turn out was absolutely shocking. Possibly the quietest tradeshow I have ever done. Won't be exhibiting here again.
