The exhibition and conference calendar has been on hold for the last year as mass gatherings have been banned, but there’s hope that there may be light at the end of the tunnel for the highways sector.
The leading highways and transport show Highways UK says it’s sold 80% of its floor space already, suggesting that people are hoping that successful popular events can take place after the summer.
Highways UK prides itself on bringing together the people responsible for planning, developing, managing, maintaining, and future-proofing the nation’s roads networks in an exhibition and multi-stream conference.
The event takes place on 3 and 4 November at the NEC in Birmingham.
Many organisations have put any travel or event attendance on hold for the first six months of the year meaning online meetings have been the way to go, but it seems like popular events of different sizes such as the JCT Traffic Signals Symposium in Nottingham and the ITS World Congress in Hamburg, as well as Highways UK could well be a success in-person as 2021 draws to a close.
We at Highways News can’t wait to get out and about again once we have the all clear and public confidence is restored!
