Fleet News has announced that its biggest car and van showpiece, Fleet Live, will join up with the Commercial Fleet Awards.
The Commercial Fleet Awards will now take place at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham, on the eve of the first day of Fleet Live, October 8. Fleet Live is held at the nearby NEC on October 8-9.
Now in its 13th year, the Commercial Fleet Awards (formerly known as the Fleet Van Awards) recognises and honours the best people, companies and products in the van and truck sector. The dinner brings together around 500 people from across the industry in a gala night.
Former winners include Royal Mail, Environment Agency, Vodafone and Heathrow Airport in the fleet categories, and Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and DAF in the van and truck categories.
Fleet News’ editor-in-chief Stephen Briers said: “We took the decision to bring together the Commercial Fleet Awards and Fleet Live because we believe both events will benefit from the closer association.
"Fleet Live will get a boost from the ties we have with the van and truck sector, and the Commercial Fleet Awards will look to attract a larger audience of fleets, suppliers and manufacturers.”
Almost 2,000 visitors attended Fleet Live in 2018, a rise of 13% on 2017. Fleet Live 2019 will cover all aspects of fleet management from the future strategic direction of company vehicles and emerging mobility technology through to practical, hands-on advice relevant to today’s fleet needs.
The event consists of interactive exhibitions, best practice workshops, breakfast seminars, daily debates and extensive networking opportunities.
