The Transport Technology Forum is delighted to announce that sponsors, exhibitors and private sector delegates are now able to register for this year’s TTF Conference via a dedicated online booking portal that is live on the event platform.
The popular event, which will be held will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Leeds from 25th to 27th April, brings together national government, local authorities, suppliers and academia to explain government policy and showcase best practice and innovation in the use of technology.
The conference provides a key event for practitioners in local authorities and their supply chains to use technology to deliver improved local highway services. It is expected to “sell out” quickly, especially as local authorities are receiving fully-funded places, including food and accommodation.
Invites for fully-funded local authority places, and details of how to register for these places will be sent out shortly.
This year, the conference will examine how Government is supporting Local Authorities in the delivery of road transport technology to create a more prosperous and greener Britain. It will include the launch of the Manual for Smart Streets guidance, details about funding opportunities and case studies from Local Authorities who have successfully implemented transport technology projects.
There will also be meetings of all six TTF Working Groups who cover connected vehicles, Urban Traffic Management and Control, Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure, parking, Mobility as a Service and open data. These groups will then report to all delegates.
Exhibitors have a chance to host a table-top display across the two-day conference – giving them immediate access to the delegates to discuss industry needs and how their products and services can help. There are also cost-effective sponsorship and table host opportunities available. Individual spaces are available for private sector delegates.
Steve Gooding, TTF Chair and Director of the RAC Foundation explained: “The TTF Conference lets the whole sector share ideas, best practice and real-world use-cases to make road transport more sustainable, efficient and safe.
“As Central Government embraces transport technology to tackle our challenges, this event is an opportunity for local authorities and potential suppliers to share the latest views, pose questions and make connections that should lead to better traffic outcomes for us all.”
The TTF Conference is organised by experienced event practitioners, the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG), who deliver numerous events including the Innovation Festival and Strictly Highways, and who ran last year’s highly successful TTF Conference in Liverpool.
