After 10 very successful years of continuous growth, ‘The Fleet Event for Scotland’ returns, with a fresh new look and format. And for the first time, we will not only be taking ultra-low emission vehicle technology just to Edinburgh… Aberdeen will also have its very own version too.
Since we launched the event back in 2009, more than 3,000 fleet, transport, HR, environmental and sustainability professionals have joined us to hear the very latest Scottish transport and emissions legislation and discover which solutions can help them run a more efficient transport operation. As a result, we are proud to say that the event has played a significant role in helping Scotland become a ‘beacon of excellence’, in the UK… A region that the rest of the UK can look to and learn from.
Much of the success is down to the continued vision, action and support of Transport Scotland and Energy Saving Trust. And credit to them, they are not about to sit back and relax… They recognise that this is an on-going issue, with continued room for development and improvement, and as a result, we have worked hard to bring you a new-look GREENFLEET SCOTLAND in 2019. This year we will bring you the very latest from our ‘Partners’ above, together with the ‘Host Cities’ themselves, so as a delegate, you will not only hear about the latest national strategy, but also a more local one too, from City of Edinburgh Council and Aberdeen City Council.
2019 sees the event have a new ‘home’ to go with its new look and theme. Murrayfield Stadium, the "Home of Scottish Rugby", will host the event this year, on Friday 12 April. As a delegate, you can expect a highly informative day, packed full of networking, knowledge-sharing, round table discussions and, of course, test drives.
We have lined-up a group of keynote speakers, with our partners, to ensure that you get to hear the very latest on national and local strategies, grants and schemes that can help you make the ‘switch to a cleaner fleet’, and more. Transport Scotland and Energy Saving Trust will deliver keynotes, and are also lining up other authoritative voices too, and you can see the latest speaker line-up HERE. From a more local perspective, you will hear from the City of Edinburgh’s Cllr Lesley MacInnes, outlining the city’s vision for a cleaner future, together with others that will outline the ‘measures’ being taken, and what the future holds, with the probable introduction of a Low Emission Zone.
If you work within the public sector, then we have you covered. Key representatives from Crown Commercial Service and Scotland Excel will be there on the day and will be able to give you the very latest on the frameworks. Some of the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers will be on-hand, as will charge point suppliers and others with innovative technology and solutions that can all be utilised, ensuring that YOUR transport operation is as clean and efficient as possible.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE DAY
The event will be geared to YOU… Upon arrival, you will be greeted by the GREENFLEET team and they will process your DVLA information, if you haven’t done it prior to the event, and hand you your very own ‘Personalised Agenda’. This will outline your day, with timings, where you need to be, etc. This is designed to ensure that when your ‘interactive day’ comes to an end, you will have had an experience that will garner you with the information and tools required to make an ‘educated decision’ on where you go next, on your ultra-low emission journey.
Proven to ensure that every delegate leaves these events with the knowledge and tools required to make an ‘educated decision’ on how to integrate ULEV technology in to their fleet operation, attending a GREENFLEET SCOTLAND event is a MUST if you are looking to make changes that will help improve air quality in your region, help you navigate through new LEZ legislation (if being implemented) and also save money on your operational costs.
BOTH of the GREENFLEET SCOTLAND events are FREE to attend, so Reserve your place NOW!
