Deadline extended for Great British Fleet Awards 2019

Fleet managers and suppliers still have time to enter next year’s Great British Fleet Awards, with the deadline now extended to 17 December due to a rush of last-minute entries.

Awards entries are now open until 17 December

Launched to recognise the pinnacle of innovation and talent in the fleet industry, the awards take place on 24 January 2019 at the Novotel London West as part of the Great British Fleet Event. This ground-breaking event – which is now open for registrations – will feature a morning conference and exhibition to spotlight the latest eco, risk and compliance changes for the fleet industry followed by presentation of the awards winners’ trophies at a lunch and then a networking event in the afternoon.

The awards will be judged by Fleet World’s expert panel of editors and recognise excellence in fleet management, and the products and services which support operators running safer, greener, more cost-effective fleets. Fleet Manager and Supplier awards are entry-only, but nominations of potential winners will also be accepted.
