Ten thousand visitors, around 300 speakers and nearly 250 exhibitors are expected at Highways UK in October, and with that many people involved, we need to know more about it.
So this week on Highways Voices, we catch up with Highways UK’s Senior Conference Producer Claudia Davidson who tells us all about the ever-growing event and how the team behind it keep innovating year after year to keep it relevant and fresh.
In the chat she talks about how the conference focusses not only on the strategic road network but local roads too, and how more focus is being placed on technology and innovation and asset management.
There are also details of the keynote sessions taking place, which this year involves Highways News co-owner Paul Hutton leading the discussions on the first day with National Highways CEO Nick Harris and other key industry leaders.
In the podcast you’ll also hear a look ahead to next week’s LCRIG Innovation Festival at the Newark Showground with details of all the live demonstrations you can take part in including an industry-first from the Transport Technology Forum, plus a reminder of the key elements of the JCT Traffic Signals Symposium taking place from 13-15 September in Nottingham.
There’s also news of work by ADEPT and a new campaign from ITS UK, and why Oxfordshire’s Highways Department and Milestone Group win this week’s “Adrian’s Accolade”
