Win trip of a lifetime at FTA Transport Manager and Fleet Engineer

Thursday 22 July 2010

Commercial vehicle manufacturer Iveco will be giving away 15 fantastic prizes, including a grand prize of an all expenses paid trip of a lifetime to Italy, at the Freight Transport Association’s annual series of Transport Manager and Fleet Engineer seminars taking place across the UK between September and December.

Every seminar will provide one lucky delegate with an opportunity to win a gala dinner including a night’s accommodation plus a VIP hospitality pass to one of the Trofeo Abarth 500 races that will be held at a blue ribbon race circuit during the summer of 2011.

One name will be drawn at the final event to win the grand prize of an all expenses paid, two day visit for two to the Iveco factory at Brescia, where the famed Eurocargo is built.

Transport Manager 2010 offers a unique insight into transport issues affecting operators, with expert advice from local Traffic Commissioners, VOSA and other leading industry speakers.

FTA's highly popular Fleet Engineer seminars will explore forthcoming legislative changes and best practice procedures and will give delegates the opportunity to hear from vehicle manufacturers, VOSA and leading transport industry bodies on engineering and technical issues currently affecting fleet engineers.
