Vauxhall to make first appearance at Fleet Management Live

Vauxhall Astra 2015

Vauxhall is set to make its debut appearance at Fleet News’s major event for company car decision-makers, Fleet Management Live, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on October 19 and 20.

The two-day event is aimed at traditional fleet operators as well as procurement, finance, HR, travel and facilities professionals who also have fleet responsibilities.

It offers a host of networking opportunities, as well as best practice workshops, seminars, and advice clinics to keep company car decision-makers up to date with the latest developments in fleet and to help them tackle their fleet challenges.

More than 1,000 company car decision-makers attended the inaugural Fleet Management Live last year and Paul Adler, fleet marketing manager at Vauxhall, believes it is the “must-go-to event in the fleet calendar”.

Adler said: “Vauxhall is looking forward to partnering with Fleet News at this important business networking event. With lots of current discussion around connected vehicles, Vauxhall is pleased to display the Fleet News Award-winning Astra and showcase our cutting-edge OnStar connectivity which we expect will be a great talking point.

“Naturally we’ll be displaying the British-built Astra Sports Tourer, plus we’ll take the opportunity to display something a little different...”

As Fleet Management Live is a non-driving event, Vauxhall will be focusing on its services that can support fleet decision-makers and demonstrating the ‘knowledge area’ of its fleet website.

Members from the Vauxhall fleet sales team will be on the stand to answer questions over both days.

Tesla has also confirmed it will be making its debut appearance at Fleet Management Live 2016 and a host of other major manufacturers will be returning to this year’s event, including Audi, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Toyota Lexus and Volvo.

Attendees will have the chance to see another Fleet News Award-winning car, the Volvo XC90, which was named best large SUV.

Selwyn Cooper, head of business sales at Volvo, said: “Volvo Car UK is returning to Fleet Management Live with an exceptionally strong model line-up all with low CO2 emissions, money saving safety technology and impressive mpg figures that are perfect for the fleet market. Last year’s FML was a fantastic opportunity to really talk to fleet decision-makers and company car drivers alike, without the distraction of driving the cars.

“For 2016, we will be showcasing our latest XC90 variant, the T8 Twin Engine, as well as our two most recently unveiled models, the new S90 and V90. The XC90, V90 and S90 luxury model range all share premium design cues, luxurious interiors and innovations that make these products ideal for those out on the roads for business."

Attendees will also have the chance to meet major leasing companies with 12 of the FN50 confirming their attendance
