About Road Safety GB
Road Safety GB is a national road safety organisation that represents local authority road safety teams from across the UK, and supports road safety officers in fulfilling their statutory role – to reduce the number and severity of road accidents through education, training and publicity policies and programmes.
Road Safety GB seeks to influence national debate – government policy and action, and public opinion – and works with other organisations to achieve common goals.
Conference – background information
The 2016 conference and exhibition, held at the Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre in November 2016 was fully subscribed and a resounding success. More than 300 people attended the event and 24 organisations participated in the exhibition which runs alongside the conference. It is anticipated that similar numbers will attend in 2017. The 2017 event will be held at the Radisson Blu Hotel at Manchester Airport on 14-15 November 2017.
The event is being promoted to more than 200 local authority road safety teams, police forces, fire & rescue services and government departments and other road safety stakeholder organisations.
As in previous years, the conference will commence at lunchtime on Tuesday 14 November and close mid-afternoon on Wednesday 15 November. The project team anticipates being in a position to publish an outline conference agenda by early April 2017.
