Join us on 11 June 2019 for this practical event which will offer help and advice to enable engineers to better manage their fleet for the next year and beyond. The key focus will be the advancement of vehicle technology and preparing engineers so that they can maintain these vehicles in a fully compliant condition - as is their legal commitment.


Our strong programme of speakers will give a well-rounded view from manufacturers, industry experts and Government, along with the chance to network with like-minded professionals within the industry.
