Places Full for AFP 2023 Conference with Three Weeks Still to Go!

Date: 26th April 2023



With three weeks still to go, all places are now full for the Association of Fleet Professionals’ (AFP) 2023 annual conference,

In total, 300 AFP members have signed up for the event, which takes place at The British Motor Museum, Gaydon, on Wednesday 17th May, and will focus on practical advice for fleets facing a range of current issues.

Sessions will be chaired by AFP board members and cover subjects including managing supply matters, dealing with the rising costs of leasing and rental, managing an aged fleet, reimbursing drivers of electric vehicles, and optimising van fleets while gearing up for electrification. There will also be a live training exercise involving everyone at the conference on  Engaging stakeholders with future fleet policy.

Paul Hollick, chair at the AFP, said: “While this is just the second AFP annual conference, it already feels like a well-established part of the fleet calendar and the number of members who have signed up to attend is a firm confirmation of its value and importance.

“We’re still receiving requests all the time for places, so have opened a waiting list, which can be accessed online but, to all intents and purposes, the event is already full with three weeks yet to go.”

Paul said that the approach adopted for the conference had been chosen based on an need expressed by many fleet managers to access practical guidance that would have a direct impact on immediate, day-to-day issues.

“In recent years, much attention has been given by the fleet sector to big, strategic subjects such as electrification. These are obviously very important but many AFP members today are instead mainly looking for advice and assistance on how to deal with a whole series of current, practical challenges.

“The ongoing impacts of everything from the pandemic to the current economic crisis means fleet managers are today facing a multitude of difficult issues for which there are often no easy answers such as rising costs across the board, ongoing supply difficulties, and the ageing of their existing cars and vans.

“At next month’s conference, we’ll be tackling as many of these subjects as possible, with a focus on pragmatic solutions that have been proven to work, explained by leading fleet managers and industry experts from across our sector. We want delegates to leave with ideas they can put straight into action.”

The headline sponsor for the AFP conference is Mina and Ashley Tate, CEO, said: “The sense of collaboration and desire for electrification was so strong at last year’s conference that there was no question that we wanted to be involved again this year.”
