The AFP will host its first annual conference in May 2022

The Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) is set to hold its first ever annual conference on May 18 2022 at The British Motor Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire. 

The conference will cover: 

  • EV Charging Infrastructure – looking at EV hardware and software solutions for fleets.
  • The Trouble with Vans – a panel session covering the issues fleets are facing when deploying electric vans.
  • Kerbside Charging Activities – presenting data gathered by the AFP from the UK’s top 20 fleets.
  • Delivering a Smart EV Highway Charging Solution for Your Vehicles – using data and telematics to monitor EV use and optimise your fleet operations.
  • Salary Sacrifice Deployment – how to deploy a success EV “salsac” scheme to your employees. 

AFP chair Paul Hollick said that the association is excited to provide its members with the opportunity to meet in the same room for the first time – an event which has been delayed by coronavirus. 

He said, “Not only will it be a chance for fleet managers to get together, network and swap best practice ideas, but the speakers we have been able to secure so far are among the most knowledgeable in our sector.

“We’re concentrating on EV (electric vehicle) adoption and operation as our subject area because it is the overriding fleet topic of the moment and we are sure that anyone who attends the conference will learn a wealth of useful information.”
