Upcoming Events

 

As the year comes to a close we're still building up to our Annual Conference, taking place 30 January in Birmingham with the theme 'Sustainable Transport for 2020 and Beyond: From Town and City Centres to the Suburbs' - emphasising the need for different strategies to address the needs of town and city centres vs inner and outer suburbs and new development sites.

Our new interactive Annual Conference format involves using one expanded double-sized room, cabaret style (lots of round tables) and no parallel sessions, so you don't have to make hard decisions on which room to attend. Each session includes a group activity of 30 minutes involving small groups, so there will be plenty of chance to meet and work with your peers from around the UKRegistration is open. Sponsors and exhibitors are encouraged to get in touch. All of the Annual Conference information is here.

We also have a new partnership in place with SmartGo from 1 January, whereby our members can access a range of employee discounts for up to eight employees throughout the calendar year, with companies such as Arriva, First, Halfords and Enterprise. (Merry Christmas!)

Please note the short-notice ECOMM 2020 deadline for papers of 31 December. Also taking place in June but without its own article in this e-bulletin is the Transport Practitioners' Meeting, 24-25 June in London.

Other plans are afoot! If you have ideas for other events/training or wish to lead one yourself, or if your company would like to sponsor one or more events or e-bulletins, please do get in touch. Thank you for reading!
