(DATES FOR YOUR DIARY FOR COMPANY CAR IN ACTION 2014 - 10TH & 11TH JUNE)
Company Car in Action 2013 - powered by Fleet News - huge success
A highly successful Fleet News Company Car In Action saw visitor numbers rise 12% year-on-year to almost 900.
Such was the quality of fleets who attended that orders were placed for cars on the day. One fleet customer even travelled to a local dealership immediately after test driving one model to put down a deposit.
It was a day for records: more manufacturer brands than ever before (25) brought more cars and vans then ever (more than 270) which resulted in a record number of test drives.
CCIA 2013 welcomed back BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Nissan after a period of absence, while exclusive first test drive opportunities were offered in the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo, Lexus IS300h and Toyota Auris Touring Sports. Fleets also had the chance to take Hyundai’s ix35 fuel cell car out for a spin.
This year’s CCIA was about more than simply test driving vehicles, however. A well-attended grey fleet debate prompted much discussion about how to better manage and control this problematic area, while delegates also flocked to a session looking at hydrogen fuel cell technology.
The summer Fleet200 meeting and the half-yearly Fleet Leasing roundtable also helped to bring a broader range of visitors to the event, which was held at the excellent Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire.
A full report of the day will be published in the June 27 issue of Fleet News.
25 manufacturer brands already signed up for UK’s leading arrive-and-drive event
Company Car in Action is shaping up to be the biggest event in its history as well as the most informative and useful fleet driving event of the year. It will include a number of UK debuts and the first opportunity to see and drive vehicles.
The event, to be held at Millbrook Proving Ground on 11th and 12th June 2013, will play a significant role on providing fleets with the information they need to decide their future manufacturer partners, including exclusive first drives, new launches and unrivalled access to all the key cars, from the most efficient diesels to electric and hydrogen.
As well as driving cars on four unique types of route on a purpose-built test track, there will be a number of informative displays and services available in the exhibition hall.
