Mobility, safety and driver wellbeing will be key subjects at this year’s Fleet Live, the UK’s leading event for the fleet management community.
The two-day event gives fleet decision-makers of all levels of experience a chance to listen, learn and share their thoughts and actions on the topics currently influencing the business sector.
Focused on executives from a fleet, purchasing and finance background, Fleet Live will deliver insight and advice on how to run an effective, efficient fleet.
It’s free to attend and takes place at the Birmingham NEC on October 8 and 9.
Last year’s event had record-breaking attendance figures with more than 2,100 visits across the two days – an increase of 13% year-on-year.
Visitors to Fleet Live 2019 will be able to take part in a range of seminars and theatre sessions, hearing from 40+ expert speakers on how to tackle and resolve many of the key issues in fleet.
All the speakers are experts in their fields, either fleet decision-makers or representatives of specialist industry bodies and organisations. There will be no sales pitches.
There will also be more than 110 exhibitors at the event, ranging from vehicle manufacturers and leasing companies to telematics and data suppliers.
The future of fleet management
The new Tomorrow’s Fleet Zone will allow visitors to experience the future of fleet management first-hand.
It will feature a purpose-built street of the future, ‘Electric Avenue’, entering the world of the autonomous vehicle, innovative electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions, mobility apps and other future products and services.
Visitors will have the opportunity to touch and see some of these and ask questions from the experts behind the technologies.
Edward Kulperger, Geotab vice president of Europe, said: “Fleet Live is an important event for us. It puts us in front of more than 2,000 fleet decision-makers.
“We are thrilled to confirm our headline sponsorship for the show.”
Visitors 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 EV solutions and software platform-as-a-service.
ACFO has also joined forces with Fleet Live 2019, as a platinum partner, and will promote the event to its membership to engage on the biggest topics affecting the industry.
Caroline Sandall, ACFO’s new chairman, and board members Debbie Floyde, Ryan Coles and Stewart Lightbody all sit on the Visitor Advisory Board for Fleet Live 2019.
The board seeks to ensure that the content at the show is reflective of the biggest challenges facing fleet and mobility managers.
The Fleet News Commercial Fleet Awards will take place at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham, on the evening of the first day of Fleet Live, Tuesday October 8.
