This year’s online JCT Traffic Signals Symposium is on course to deliver a record number of delegates for the event as more than two hundred people signed up to take part in just the first four days of registration.
The popular event will be held online on 22 and 23 September because a physical event is impossible under current government restrictions. Places are free to delegates thanks to the support of a range of event partners.
“Compared to the same period last year, we are 60 per cent up on registrations this time around,” explained JCT Director and event organiser John Nightingale. “Given that this is unknown territory for everyone, I am thrilled at the support we’re getting from the industry. It’s also interesting that we are getting a significant number of overseas delegates signing up which is something we will have to take into account in future years.”
The two-day symposium features more than 20 speakers discussing a range of signal-related innovations as well as wider traffic management and technological initiatives. Each session will feature a Q and A session with the expert speakers.
The Symposium has been made possible thanks to the industry support in the shape of event partners; AGD, Aldridge, C&T Technology, Clearview Intelligence, COLAS, Dynniq, IHE, Integrated Traffic Services, ITS (UK), NAL, Now Wireless, PTV, Siemens Mobility, Swarco, Telent, TWM Traffic Control Systems, TRL and Vivacity. Highways News is the event’s media partner.
Once again the MOVA user group is being organised by JCT and this year takes place on 17 September.
This is the 25th JCT Traffic Signals Symposium, which was first held in 1996. Delegates can sign up for both the Symposium and MOVA User Group here. A final schedule of papers will be released next week.
