Last chance to apply for the Fleet Europe Awards
Are you particularly proud of a fleet or mobility programme that you implemented as a fleet manager? This year could be your time to shine at the 2020 Fleet Europe Awards! Apply before 14 September.
For the first time ever, the Fleet Europe Summit and the Fleet Europe Awards ceremony will be held online only, on 18 November 2020. Set aside your modesty and apply for this year’s awards!
If your application is shortlisted, you will be invited to a jury meeting, which will also take place digitally. No need to worry about travel restrictions, but it also allows you to make more efficient use of your time.
The jury meeting will take place on 20, 21 or 22 October (the exact date will be confirmed by 12 October). This year’s jury president is Alexandra Melville of Accenture, the first time a corporate fleet customer presides over the procedure.
Attending the jury meeting is already a small victory, giving you the time to present your programme but also forcing you to step back and take a look at what you have achieved from a distance. And it could give you the opportunity to win one of the following awards – maybe even two...
