(updated September 2020)
Since lockdown was announced, events have been moving online (including our well received ‘Lifting the Lockdown’ webinar series). There were some hopes that we could return to in-person events towards the end of this year, but these have been dashed by the latest Government announcements. However, the events will still be happening online and it’s now even more important to stay connected and informed.
Here are a few that you won’t want to miss:
6 October: BVRLA ‘Fleets in Charge’
According to the BVRLA, “this free digital event is a must-attend for anybody with an interest in road transport decarbonisation and business recovery for the fleet sector. High profile speakers, panel discussions and breakout sessions will form part of an interactive and insightful agenda.” Link
8 October: Clean Air Day
Pushed back from the third Thursday in June, the UK’s largest air pollution campaign engages thousands of people at hundreds of events and reaches millions more through the media. Link.
GreenFleet’s regional roadshows have moved to a digital platform for 2020. Designed for fleet professionals interested in sustainability, the event season culminates in the prestigious GreenFleet Awards on 2 December. Link
17-19 November: The Virtual Fleet and Mobility Live
This is one of the most important events of the year for the fleet community. It gives you a chance to hear from experts, talk with suppliers, see the latest innovations and learn more about the issues, opportunities and challenges for fleets and mobility. Link
