New ideas and new features for the biggest and most invaluable exhibition and conference in fleet

Back

October 8-9, 2019 NEC Birmingham


Fleet Live is officially open for business. The hall has been booked at the NEC, exhibitors are signing up and you can already register your place for this year.

The show is set to be even bigger this year with curated best practice sessions formulated by a visitor advisory board made up fleet professionals to make sure content is useful for anyone involved in making decisions for their company fleet.


Strategy content sessions


Fleet Live strategy sessions are dedicated to broad, long-term issues that affect operators, particularly where developments and changes will require liaison with other business departments and external providers during the planning process.

Confirmed sessions for this year include the latest on Mobility as a Service, with experts like BMW Group’s Mobility Services head of mobility Tony Douglas, explaining how manufacturers will evolve to keep pace with tech giants like Google and Apple.

It’s impossible to ignore the importance of electric vehicles (EV) on the future of the fleet industry. Another session will detail the UK’s biggest EV trial - Optimise Prime, with Royal Mail and other key stakeholders explaining how they tackled the biggest hurdles on the road to electrification of their fleets.

Chris Lane, Transport for West Midlands Head of Transport Innovation and Tom Hayes, Oxford City Council executive board member for A Safer and Greener Environment, will both explain their smart transport strategies and how fleets can worth with councils to continue to keep goods and people moving in the wake of air quality regulations.

Gary McRae, Dundee City Council corporate fleet manager and Dr David Beeton, chief executive of Urban Foresight will also present how the city was named the most visionary city in Europe for its EV strategy in 2018.

Simon King, procurement director at Mitie, will also present how the company is implementing its plan to make 20% of its 3,500 compact van and car fleet EV by the end of 2020.

More sessions and speakers for the strategy, operations and discover fleet seminar theatres will be revealed in the run up to the event in October. You can see the latest agenda here.

Last year’s post show survey revealed 69% of visitors came to the event to grow their knowledge of best practice, fleet policy and regulations, while 40% were there to meet fleet suppliers.


“If a business wants to cut costs, improve its green credentials, reduce risk, better manage its drivers, buy or lease vehicles more effectively, Fleet Live is the only place they can final all the answers.”

Stephen Briers, Fleet News editor-in-chief


Visitor registration for Fleet Live is now open. 


Tomorrow’s Fleet

There’s a new name to represent the future of the fleet industry at Fleet Live.
The change reflects Fleet News’ own editorial overhaul at the start of this year that saw it add new sections to the magazine, including Tomorrow's Fleet.

Just like the magazine and on fleetnews.co.uk, the Tomorrow’s Fleet zone at Fleet Live this year will shine a light on the latest developments in mobility, autonomy, connectivity, shared services and electrification, helping you to understand how these next-gen technologies can improve your operations.

This will all be displayed with an innovative and interactive display at the show.
