The official Twitter account for Fleet Show 2016 (@thefleetshow) received 40.2k impressions in under a month in the run-up to the show on 11th May, and fantastic engagement on the day.

Networking opportunities proved particularly popular. Exhibitor Fuelmate (@Fuelmate) tweeted: “Thank you @thefleetshow, we had a great day meeting lots of new friends,” and CVM iLease (@CVMiLease) said, “Great day yesterday at @thefleetshow, thanks to everyone who came to say hello.”

Exhibitor Journey Track (@journeytrack) tweeted, “Thanks to everyone who visited @thefleetshow yesterday at #Silverstone, a fantastic day,” while Nexus Vehicle Rental (@Nexus_Rental) posted: “Thanks for coming to see us at yesterday’s fantastic event – @thefleetshow – well done @fleetworldgroup!”

Professional Driver Magazine (@prodrivermag) also tweeted about their experience of the networking facilities from a visitor’s perspective: “Great day at @thefleetshow yesterday, nice meeting new people and to catch up with familiar faces.”

There was also a very positive response to the track driving experience and the array of vehicles available to try out on three circuits.

“Enjoyed the numerous test drives around the #Silverstone track. The Evoque is a pleasure to drive,” tweeted Car Leasing West London (@VCWestLondon).

“Just had a go in the @Mazda_UK MX-5 and booked my hotlap to see what it can really do,” added Scott Ravenhall (@ScottFleetHire) from Fleet Hire.

While Sharon Smith (@shazatclearb2b) expressed her excitement about the variety of vehicles available to test drive; “I had a great day at @thefleetshow, fave drive was @OfficialLexusUK GS! @Toyota Yaris was fun too!”.

Jay Smith (@jaysmith08) tweeted images from inside the busy Go Ultra Low lunch meeting, and Contract Hire and Leasing (@ContractHire) engaged with the Question Time Debate, posting: “Connected cars’ data being discussed at @thefleetshow – who owns the car’s data? Driver, manufacturer, fleet manager or leasing company?”.

A preliminary date of next year’s Fleet Show has already been set – Thursday 11th May 2017, and will once again be promoted using the @thefleetshow Twitter account and #FleetShow hashtag.
