  • WLTP was designed to ensure official emission figures are actually based on reality. Unfortunately, they are always higher than the previous NEDC numbers.

  • Those pitches are made for innovating companies to talk about what they are working on and for attendees to discover new rpoducts/services.

  • Different flees sizes require different management practices. A small fleet spread out across a large number of EU countries, for instance, will face other challenges than the same fleet that also has a presence outside the EU. A large fleet that is limited to one country will be easier to manage than a large fleet spread across EU and non-EU countries. How do you put a car policy together in each case? How many leasing companies should you work with? How many brands can you include? Workshop session moderated by the IFMI Partners where the attendees discuss and define the perfect fleet management policy for 4 types of fleet: 1. Small fleet within a lot of countries in EU 2. Small fleet within a lot of countries inside/outside EU 3. Large fleet within one country 4. Large fleet within a lot of countries inside/outside EU via working groups in café model set-up, moderated by the IFMI Partners.

  • The Fleet Europe village is the heart of the fleet Europe summit where delegates meet and interact with suppliers and fellow fleet and mobility professionals.

  • “How Electrification, Smart Mobility and Artificial Intelligence add value to your Fleet Programme”

  • Not only corporates are responding to the changing mobility behaviour of their people in line with overall objectives; cities are doing the same and some in such a way that they earn the moniker Smart City. Lisbon is one of them: the Portuguese capital has clear objectives to increase mobility efficiency and air quality while reducing pollution and traffic jams, hence optimising quality of life and city productivity – not unlike the ambitions of a company. Deputy Mayor Miguel Gaspar of the City of Lisbon will shine his light on the dynamics linked to the mobility opportunities and challenges within a smart city.

  • The automotive and mobility business sees many start-ups and new companies entering, but often there are two main issues: 1) they have problems in getting connected to the bigger industry players that could be interested to invest, 2) they have issues in commercialising their idea and solutions which means many disappear after a while. In this session you discover the start-up ecosystem, and the conditions for success in growing a start-up to a sustainable business.

  • Experts have been predicting for years that MaaS and shared mobility will push the current one-driver-one-car model aside. Until today the switch hasn’t been made but looking at the results of the 2019 Global Fleet Survey, international fleet managers indeed are considering the transformation from Fleet to Mobility, and are open to implementing solutions like carsharing. This solution is also becoming more important on the supplier side, as two major automotive rivals, Daimler and BMW Group, have merged their mobility offering under the Now umbrella, with Share Now as one of the five mobility pillars. In this session you will get inspired by the founder of Mobility as a Service and the CEO of one of the most promising carsharing models in Europe.

  • In this session we unravel the success of three former Smart Mobility Start-up of the Year winners. Panel discussion.

  • Until recently, diesel was the preferred fuel for most European fleets. But employees are increasingly asking for electric vehicles and car manufacturers are speeding up the launch of several new EVs, supported by charging services and solutions to capitalise on the electric evolution. Presentations by Alain Van Groenendael, Chief Executive Officer, Arval; Marco Lessacher, Chief Executive Officer, Alphabet; Derek von Rönn, Head of Volkswagen Global Business Model Sales E-Mobility, followed by a panel discussion.

  • Traffic jams, city bans and mobility regulations have led to the increasing popularity of new mobility alternatives and micromobility. Indeed, e-scooters, e-bikes and other smaller mobility modes are now used by commuters to ensure their last-mile mobility in many cities. But the business model and more fundamentally the safety aspect of these micromobility solutions abound with questions. Can Micromobility and Safety make a perfect match?

    Congress Center

  • The future of Fleet and Mobility is largely driven by technology innovation. Leveraging technology, connectivity and artificial intelligence are key when the amount of data is big and the need for analysis important, which is the case with CASE: the Connected, Autonomous, Shared and Electric mobility future. Through AI processes will get smarter, fleets more cost-effective and mobility cheaper and safer.

  • This Awards Ceremony will be dedicated to innovative ideas developped by both Start-ups and innovation companies
    Where
