Become the Fleet Manager of the Year at the 2020 Fleet Europe Awards
For the first time ever, the process of the Fleet Europe Awards' competition for fleet and mobility managers goes fully digital. Are you a Fleet and Mobility Manager and have you implemented a strong vehicle fleet and/or mobility programme? Then don't hesitate but present your case in front of our expert jury during the virtual jury meeting and win one of the six coveted Fleet Europe Awards.
This year, the Fleet Europe Awards will be presented at the Fleet Europe Summit on 18 November 2020. Set aside your modesty and you could take centre stage in front of your peers!
Virtual Jury Meeting
If your application is shortlisted, you will be invited to present your case in front of a jury made up of industry insiders, both other fleet managers and representatives of suppliers. This year, the Jury Meeting will be organised online. This should help respect travel restrictions and increase easy access to the competition for fleet managers across the globe, and it allows you to make more efficient use of your time. The Jury Meeting will take place on 20, 21 or 22 October (precise date will be confirmed by 12 October).
This year's jury president is Alexandra Melville, Global Car Fleet & Mobility Category Lead, Accenture. Not only is she the first woman presiding the jury, it is also the first time the jury president is a corporate fleet customer.
