Nominations have opened for members of fleet operators' association ACFO to recognise the top vehicles, initiatives and suppliers’ products and services in the industry.
The organisation is also urging members, motor manufacturers and fleet industry suppliers to book tables for its awards ceremony, which takes place on Wednesday, November 16.
The dinner, which is traditionally attended by almost 300 people, is being held at the St John’s Hotel, Warwick Road, Solihull, Birmingham.
It is the 33rd consecutive year of the awards and they enable both members and non-members to initially nominate the very best in their opinion across seven categories:
- Fleet service company of the year
- Environmental initiative of the year
- Fleet safety initiative of the year
- Green vehicle of the year
- Small van of the year
- Large van of the year
- Fleet car of the year
Nominations can be made online at http://www.acfo.org/awards/nominate by September 9.
Meanwhile, table bookings, as well as details of awards’ sponsorship opportunities, can be made by contacting ACFO on 01865 342102, via email email@example.com or through the ACFO website www.acfo.org
This year's charity partner is the 401 Challenge. It sees runner Ben Smith attempting to run a world record 401 marathons in 401 consecutive days around 309 locations in the UK.
He has to date completed almost 300 marathons and covered around 7,500 miles. His aim is to raise £250,000 to support charities Stonewall and Kidscape whose work includes supporting anti-bullying initiatives in UK schools and society.
The evening’s guest speaker will be 'stand-up historian' Bill Callaghan, a Yeoman Warder at the Tower of London.
