Despite its virtual format, this year’s Virtual Fleet & Mobility Live will still allow fleet decision makers to pose their questions to the most influential and knowledgeable people in the industry.
Across three days, there is an action-packed roster of sessions covering electric vehicles, operational excellence, mobility and manufacturers.
Visitors can hear from more than 20 speakers, as well as representatives from some of the fleet sector’s most prolific car brands.
After each session, delegates will be able to submit questions which will be answered live, as the speakers will be on hand once their session premieres, or via follow-up for those watching later.
Among the speakers will be Dr Darren Handley, head of infrastructure, grants and delivery at the DfT. He will provide an overview of the challenge of vehicle fleet decarbonisation in the UK, focusing on the Government's current plans, including a view on the DfT's impending decision on bringing forward a ban on the internal combustion engine.
Rosie Sharp, behavioural sciences researcher at TRL will provide best practice advice on dealing with driver wellbeing, managing risk and fatigue.
While Andy Eastlake, from Low CVP, will look at overcoming real and perceived hurdles, including the challenge of integrating EVs into the UK’s energy infrastructure, to speed up the transition before the zero emission deadline of 2040/2035.
As part of the event, Fleet News editor-in-chief Stephen Briers has prepared a Q&A session with each car maker to outline their plans for 2021, how they have adapted to Covid restrictions, the actions they are taking to reduce total cost of ownership and some of the latest safety technology.
Visitors can interact with the all car brands via the Virtual Fleet & Mobility Live platform for the duration of the event, via video or online chat.
There are also 24 virtual stands hosted by some of the fleet sector’s leading suppliers, including telematics, leasing and software.
