More than 1,500 visitors expected at Fleet Management Live

Car, van and truck fleets responsible for more than 500,000 vehicles will converge on Fleet Management Live in October when the UK’s biggest fleet event opens its doors.

Following the success of last year’s exhibition, the showcase for manufacturers, leasing companies and other industry suppliers is expanding to incorporate the Commercial Fleet Van & Truck Show.

The expansion reflects the wishes of vehicle operators, many of whom operate both cars and commercial vehicles, who wanted to meet with the widest possible range of companies in a single day.

The event will offer a vital opportunity for industry suppliers to meet and influence fleet operators during their critical planning phase for 2018.

Fleet Management Live, which takes place at the NEC on October 3-4, has become the UK’s biggest fleet event, with more than 1,500 visitors expected to pass through the doors this year.

At last year’s show, nearly one-third of attendees had board level responsibility with every fleet size represented, from SMEs through to the UK’s biggest fleets.

Nearly 70% of visitors last year said they attended to find out about new products and services, while 63% were there to meet suppliers.

Furthermore, 96% said they were likely to attend this year’s show to update their supplier knowledge.

Chris Lester, event director, said: “Fleet Management Live is seen as an essential part of the fleet calendar by vehicle operators from every industry sector. For fleet suppliers, from manufacturers to leasing companies, this is an important opportunity to meet managers as they consider their strategies for 2018 to ensure they are part of their future decision-making process.”
