Last week TCH Leasing had the opportunity to exhibit at Fleet Live, the UK's leading event to attend if you're in the fleet management community. This was the perfect opportunity for us to demonstrate our services including contract hire, fleet management, employee benefits and outsourcing. See below to hear what our team had to say about the event.
Alex Bristow, Business Development Manager, enjoyed the event, saying: "Fleet Live is an excellent event and has continued to grow its exposure in the Fleet industry, particularly over the last few years.
Attendance records were once again exceeded and it was excellent to see the likes of BMW, JLR, Toyota/Lexus and Volvo showcasing their latest products and innovations.
The forums which were running throughout the two days were very interesting, informative and covered a large range of important topics such as WLTP and Hybrid/Electric vehicle developments.
Being fortunate enough to exhibit gave us the ability to promote our brand, meet a large number of Fleet Managers/Directors and useful contacts within our industry and increase our knowledge on how aspects will unfold in the near future."
TCH Leasing was proud to be one of the 150 exhibitors at the event in Birmingham's NEC. The team had the chance to listen in on some interesting seminars and debates on the changing face of fleet management and learned about the challenges facing the industry in the future.
"The free seminars helped the attendees gain some valuable information that was impacting their drivers and fleet and the response on our stand from visitors seemed to indicate that many were in the market for new providers." - Ranjit Grewal, Head of Business Development.
The team also benefitted from being located right outside of the 'Technology Zone' at the event and had the chance to explore what upcoming future technology the fleet industry could utilise, as well as exploring the other exhibitors' stands at the event.
Our corporate sales manager, Mark Proudfoot, booked several appointments with clients, saying "I and the rest of the team had some really good conversations with people in the ‘Looking Zone’ regarding the products and services that TCH offer. It was a great two days and now the real work starts!"
Duncan Howell, Corporate Sales Manager of Salsa, added "There didn’t seem to be one particular product in demand – many had the need for a combination of Contract Hire and Leasing, Salary Sacrifice schemes, Fleet Management, Daily Rental, Outsourcing or Personal Lease so we could offer a solution to just about everybody that came on our stand. Our offer of a free, no commitment, Fleet Review was taken up by quite a few visitors on the spot."
The whole team enjoyed the event and can't wait to attend again next year.
