One of the UK’s biggest and most influential Chambers of Commerce has confirmed its support of Fleet Management Live 2017.

The Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC) represents more than 2,500 companies with nearly 200,000 employees, operating thousands of cars, vans and trucks.

By supporting the event, GBCC recognises the critical role of fleet in delivering business growth within companies, but also the importance of Fleet Management Live as a key event in the fleet calendar.

The motor industry plays a special role in the Midlands, as it is home to several car manufacturers, leasing companies and other fleet suppliers.

Paul Faulkner, chief executive of the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, said: “The Midlands is a key region for the motor and transport sector, so we’re delighted to work with Fleet Management Live.

“Our members are responsible for fleets that range from small to some of the largest in the country and we recognise the important role fleet management plays in good business practice.”

As part of its involvement at Fleet Management Live 2017, GBCC will be providing advice and support to visitors from the area and also encouraging the fleet departments of its thousands of members to attend.

Fleet Management Live will grow to a record size this year as it expands to include the entire car, van and truck market, with a range of new exhibitors and new added-value presentations.

Chris Lester, event director, said: “Fleet Management Live takes place at the NEC and itself is a major event in the Midlands business calendar.

"I am delighted that Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce is supporting this event, which recognises the importance of fleet for businesses in the region and the benefits of effective and efficient fleet management.”

Fleet Management Live takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on October 3 and 4.
