Join us for a look into the future

By Mark Cartwright, Head of Vans and Light Commercial Vehicles, FTA

Hindsight is a wonderful thing and often we all wish we could have seen into the future. FTA is here to offer the perfect solution with our brand new one-day conference ‘Future Van 2019’. Held at the NAEC in Stoneleigh, Warwickshire on 3 October 2019, the event promises to be a favourite amongst operators, manufacturers and industry leaders.

The conference – sponsored by Mercedes-Benz Vans – is the perfect event for those who are unsure what lies on the road ahead and will be headlined by expert futurologist Fergus McVey from 7th Sense Research.  Armed with extensive research, his sessions will give attendees the knowledge needed to embrace the ever-evolving world of vans and stay ahead of the competition. In the past you may have been forgiven for laughing at the idea of connected vans that can ‘talk’ to each other. However, with this set to become an everyday reality, McVey will be discussing the opportunities and challenges that these technological developments present.

Bringing together some of the most innovative minds in the industry, the event – also sponsored by Bott, Brigade Electronics, Hertz, Lex Autolease and Quartix – will feature a diverse panel of speakers discussing everything from driverless to electric vans, drones and even last mile technology.

With environmental pressure and soaring consumer demand causing monumental changes in the van market, make sure you stay miles ahead with all the up-to-date information. The price to attend the conference is £295.00 + VAT for members or £350.00 + VAT for non-members. Tickets for this event look set to sell out. Ensure you secure your place today by visiting
