The must-attend event of the summer, the Innovation and Learning Festival with Paula Claytonsmith on this week’s Highways Voices

The event sees local authorities find out about new innovations from the supply chain that can help to meet their current and future challenges, as products, solutions, new innovations and techniques from across the highways sector are showcased.

Local Council Roads Innovation Group CEO Paula Claytonsmith is our guest, discussing the indoor and outdoor exhibitions plus a range of live demonstration sessions at the new venue of Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.

“It’s nice to move to a new venue, which we know will have better facilities, better food facilities, better networking facilities, and more compact,” she says.

“I think there’s a bit of a misnomer that the Innovation and Learning festival is more on that civils, highways maintenance side, when actually it’s both highways, maintenance, civils, and also technology. So they are actually both present at the event, and what we’ve worked hard this year to do is bring new sort of innovations.”

She discusses the need for stakeholders to work together to address industry challenges, including sustainability and technology integration as well as the need to book as soon as possible.

Away from the main interview, you’ll hear news from our partners including the clock ticking on early bird ticket rates for the ITS UK President’s Dinner, and why Adrian has chosen Coventry University as the winners of his accolade this week.
