  • Leasing companies have entered an exciting new era; the operational leasing product is gaining popularity in various emerging markets, delivering new opportunities to the leasing supply chain. At the same time, the product is evolving in the mature markets: private lease, car + mobility and car-sharing are just a few of the products that will change the landscape. The leasing industry has supported corporate clients for well over 30 years, and prepared to stay the supplier of choice for at least another 30 years! Executive panel discussion with major global leasing companies to find out how they adapt their business with solutions that fit into the new era of Fleet & Mobility. With Tim ALBERTSEN, CEO, ALD Automotive | Marco LESSACHER, CEO, Alphabet International This Panel is preceded by a buyer Walk-In with Guillaume de Subercasaux, Schindler

  •  Being and staying dynamic is what OEMs are good at: the needs and preferences of both consumer and corporate clients have changed rapidly over the last few decades, for example by transitioning from sedan to SUV. OEMs have consistently delivered and are preparing for the next, and perhaps the most dramatic transition ever: electric and autonomous. Add to the mix some exciting new OEMs and and we have all the ingredients for the next phase in automobile production! Discover how OEMs prepare for the future. With Martin JAHN, Board Member for Sales & Marketing, Skoda

  • With ALD Automotive

  • Never in history has technology been as accessible and game-changing as it is right now. The fleet industry is exploring IoT, AI, connectivity and telematics, be it within the confines of regulations and, of course, employee acceptance. The challenge for corporate clients in 2021 is to push tech applications across the finish line and implement new solutions that will benefit employee safety, asset utilisation, data and ultimately, cost control. In the meanwhile, new solutions come to the market and an entirely new supply chain is developing. It's time to pay attention to tech! Panel discussion with major leaders in connectivity, telematics and IoT tech. This panel is preceded by a Buyer Walk-In with David Omodei, Microsoft

  • With Polestar

  • Often challenged, the transition from ownership to usership is inevitable and fits the trend towards cyclic economies like a glove. The translation of this transition into the corporate fleet ecosystem is "mobility", and it has made it to the top of the corporate agenda. The mobility supply chain is new, diverse and very often local, but the pace of its development is exceptional: not only are solutions being provided in more cities than ever before, but also peripheral services, such as mobility platforms, digital payments and integrations, are becoming mainstream. Change has started! With Pim DE WEERD, Global Mobility Manager, Philips and International Smart Mobility Manager of the Year 2020
