Running Faster, Longer & Leaner

Ghaya Grand Hotel, Dubai, UAE 05 Dec 2019

Running Faster, Longer and Leaner

The first-ever edition of the Truck & Fleet Conference is around the corner; with the Ghaya Grand Hotel set to play host to a great line-up of speakers exploring ways to make fleets run leaner, faster and safer on 5th December, 2019.

In an exciting and packed programme, delegates will be able to see some of the best trucks ever-made including the new Actros, the Ford F-Max, Scania’s New Truck Generation (NTG), Volvo’s FH 460, and more. Delegates will also have the opportunity to participate in test drives following the conclusion of the event at 3pm.

Inside the conference room, there will be live on-stage interviews – including an inspirational keynote interview with Samer Choucair, one of the pioneers behind the region’s first sustainable transporter, ION. The Transporters Roundtable will explore best practice in the region and how to expand your business. There will also be a look to the future with the OEM panel; technology insights; as well as help from experts on areas such as vehicle finance and training.

There will also be time to find out how the Acciona 100% Ecopowered is pushing the envelope on what is possible in electric vehicles.

Throughout the event, we will be shedding light on key issues in the commercial vehicles, logistics and transportation sectors, bringing the best global and regional practices, solutions and equipment to delegates through presentations and panel discussions. Make sure you don’t miss this ground-breaking opportunity.

The Truck & Fleet Conference is FREE to attend for industry professionals so join us for this, as well as discussions and networking opportunities that can put your fleet on the front foot heading into 2020.
