The driving charity Brake, run with the support of Balfour Beatty Plant & Fleet Services, has announced the date, venue and line-up for its 10th annual awards ceremony, which will be held in June at the MacDonald Burlington Hotel in the heart of the England’s second city, Birmingham.
Targeting achievers in commercial fleet safety, the function will reward the best in class for organisations that have contributed massively to road safety in the last twelve months.
Many of the awards are for innovations we have covered here on cheapvaninsurance.co.uk over the last couple of months, including reducing carbon footprints with emmission levels, analysing crash sites and groundbreaking methods of enhancing fuel efficiency.
If you believe your business has contributed to road saftety in the fleet industry you can submit your details – free of charge – on the online form promoting the event here: http://www.brake.org.uk/friend-of-brake/fsf_award.htm
There is a catch (it is a charity event, after all) – in order to be considered for the award, you must book at least one seat at the networking event.
If you are attending on your own, the charge will be £110 or, if you can organise a party of 10 people, you can secure a private table for £1,000, saving £10/per head. This can be submitted on the form in the link above or you can e-mail the details for booking alone to [email protected]
This is still cheap when you take into consideration the quality of the venue, a pre-dinner reception with drinks, followed by a three-course meal (wine included) access to the casino and you can dance the night away to the disco tunes.
This year’s sponsors are Arval, who received a commendation in the 2011 ceremony for the “Road Safety in the Community Award”. Individual awards are also sponsored by other organisations who recognise the outstanding job that the Fleet Safety Forum does for raising public and commercial awareness of fleet safety issues that may otherwise go unaddressed.
At time of writing, there are still opportunities to put your name in front of a receptive audience of the upper echelons of the the fleet commercial industry by part-sponsoring the event – a flyer can be downloaded as a pdf @ http://www.fleetsafetyforum.org/docs/flyer-12-awards.pdf to see if your business fits the profile of the event; you can also take the first steps to raising your brand awareness by e-mailing Katie Shephard of the Brake charity on [email protected]
If you’re in the commercial fleet business and fancy a night out in Brum, for those in fleet car, truck and van insurance as well as the manufacturing side of the industry, this networking awards event is as good an excuse as your likely to get, this year.
