Held during the second media day of last week’s show, the event – now in its sixth year – was attended by some 200 fleet managers and representatives of the automotive, leasing and service industries from all over the world.

This year’s expert speaker line-up included Tomas Björnsson, vice president by trade, head of business unit e-mobility at Vattenfall AB and Steffen Krautwasser, global head of car fleet, SAP SE, who provided an overview of the electrification of their fleets.

The event also saw a panel discussion on the subject of ‘Converting a fleet into full electric’, which included Sandra Roling, head of EV100, The Climate Group, and was moderated by Thilo von Ulmenstein, managing partner at Fleetcompetence Group.

Information and pictures of the event will be available shortly on www.internationalfleetmeeting.com as well as details of next year’s International Fleet Meeting.
