The Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) will hold its first annual conference at The British Motor Museum, Gaydon, on May 18.
The conference, which is open to all AFP members, will consider the switch from ICE vehicles to electric cars and vans.
Paul Hollick, chair at the AFP, explained that the pandemic had prevented the industry body from holding such events since its formation in early 2020.
“The timing of the creation of the AFP and the arrival of coronavirus means that almost all of our events to date have been digital, so we are very pleased to be able to unveil the plans for our annual conference and to see everyone in-person,” he said.
“It is open to all AFP members and will focus heavily on a range of topics surrounding the adoption of electric cars and vans, which is very much the headline subject of the moment.”
Hollick says this will include a look at the electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure at home and in the office, how to reimburse drivers for home charging costs, delivering a smart EV highway charging solution for vehicles, salary sacrifice deployment, and using data and telematics to optimise your fleet and monitor your EVs.
Hollick added: “We’ll be announcing more details about speakers soon, as well as how to register, but May 18th is a date that all serious fleet operators should be adding to their diary, we believe.”
