Fleet Live has announced that Geotab is the new headline sponsor for the largest event for the fleet sector in the UK, Fleet Live.
The event, taking place at the NEC in Birmingham on October 8-9, will attract over 2,000 visitors.
Geotab is a global leader in telematics, providing open platform fleet management solutions to businesses of all sizes. Geotab’s intuitive, full-featured solutions help businesses better manage their drivers and vehicles by extracting accurate and actionable intelligence from real-time and historical trips data.
Fleet Live is the UK’s leading event for the fleet management community and gives decision-makers the chance to face future challenges and opportunities together with two days of learning, sharing and networking.
Edward Kulperger, Geotab Europe vice president said: “Fleet Live is an important event for us, as it puts us in front of over 2,000 fleet decision-makers. We are thrilled to confirm that Geotab is the new headline sponsor for the show, which is the biggest of its kind for the fleet management community in the UK.
“One of our core values at Geotab is to innovate and continuously seek ways to improve. We are committed to advancing technology, empowering businesses and making the roads safer for everyone.”
Visitors to the show will also have the opportunity to meet with members of Geotab’s team on stand F22 and speak with them about the latest developments at the company, including its electric vehicle solutions and software platform-as-a-service.
Geotab’s EV expertise
As the headline sponsor, Geotab will also be showcasing its EV expertise.
With the recent announcement of 0% benefit-in-kind company car taxation from April next year, the UK’s move to zero-emissions is expected to be on a sharp upward curve over the next 12 months as fleets consider adding more EVs to choice lists.
Kulperger said: “For our customers, EVs offer opportunities to go green and reduce long-term emissions.
“They also bring a wave of new challenges. With over one million connected vehicles on the road, Geotab is helping businesses develop their own electrification strategies.”
In addition to offering EV compatibility through the Geotab GO device, the company uses data to navigate different electrification challenges.
This can take the form of optimising electric range through fuel efficiency measurement, reporting on charging activities, or using real-time information to help managers make decisions on whether to electrify.
Kulperger added: “Wherever your business is on its electrification journey, Fleet Live 2019 is a great time to meet our team of experts and learn about the role of telematics in your transition to EVs.”
