More than 200 are set to be present the ICFM National Members’ Conference 2018, marking a record attendance for the event.

To be held on March 20 at The British Motor Museum, the ‘Fuel for the Future, the Emissions Dilemma’ conference will celebrate ICFM’s 25th anniversary milestone.

It has announced JLR as host sponsor and Chargemaster as headline sponsor.

Support sponsors include:

  • Accident Exchange
  • CD Auction Group
  • Geotab
  • Jaama
  • Selsia Vehicle Networks.

Speakers at the conference will cover topics impacting on fleet fuels and emissions.

The speakers will be:

  • Dale Eynon, director, DEFRA Group Fleet Service - Environment Agency
  • Stewart Lightbody, head of fleet services, Anglian Water
  • Alison Moriarty, fleet risk and compliance manager, Skanska
  • Paul Tate, commodity manager fleet, Siemens PLC
  • Rupert Pontin, director of valuations, Cazana
  • Tony Greenidge, business development director, IAM RoadSmart.
  • Celebrity guest speaker Gavin Hastings, a former captain of Scotland’s rugby union team

Alongside conference speakers ICFM will also include the presentation of awards to fleet decision-makers that have successfully completed training courses since the last event.

ICFM’s director Peter Eldridge (pictured) said: “Advance delegate registrations mean that the 2018 Annual National Members’ Conference will set an attendance record for an ICFM conference.

“That, we believe, underlines the importance that the membership attaches to the role of the ICFM in enhancing their skills and fleet management knowledge and the fact that fleet decision-makers are facing more changes today than in the past 25 years.

“The evolution of the sector is becoming ever more rapid and without the skills that ICFM training provides, and the ability to quiz industry experts, fleet chiefs could find themselves making poor decisions that will impact on the operating efficiency and effectiveness of their vehicles and businesses.”

The conference will commence at 9.30am (registration from 8.30am) and finish at 3.45pm.

During lunch, IAM RoadSmart will be holding a ‘parking challenge’.

ICFM members, who may also take a guest who has an interest in fleet, can book their free place online.
