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
Held in November each year, the National Road Safety Conference is Road Safety GB’s flagship annual event. The conference moves around the country and is hosted and organised each year by a Road Safety GB Regional Group or Groups.

More than 300 delegates attended the 2022 National Conference in Harrogate, from across the UK and much further afield. Delegates comprise local authority road safety officers, police and fire & rescue officers, central government departments, academics and representatives from other road safety stakeholder organisations in the private and third sectors.

The 2023 National Conference will be held at The Cotswold Water Park, Gloucestershire on 15-16 November 2023. The event is promoted to more than 200 local authority road safety teams, police forces, fire & rescue services and government departments and other road safety stakeholder organisations.

Why is Road Safety GB seeking commercial partners / sponsors for the conference?
In order to make the event affordable as possible in these financially constrained times, delegate rates for Road Safety GB members will be heavily subsidised.

To make the event viable at the subsidised rates, Road Safety GB seeks to raise sponsorship funding to cover the costs of staging the conference. In 2022, three organisations - Jenoptik, Westcotec and National Highways - co-sponsored the event.

What will partners receive for their investment?
First, by association, you will be providing support to Road Safety GB and playing an important part in helping ensure the success of this important event – not just this year, but in future years as well.

Perhaps most importantly, you will be helping to broaden understanding of road safety issues, and providing support to road safety professionals in their work to reduce crashes and casualties. In return, your branding will appear prominently on the event website, on the conference set and on the delegates’ handbook. You will also be mentioned in all correspondence and news updates about the event. The standard sponsorship package includes a presence at the exhibition and two full residential delegate places at the conference, including accommodation and the conference dinner.

If you have any other specific requests or requirements we will be very happy to discuss these with you, and will do our best to meet them.

Required investment
The investment we ask for from new co-sponsors is £7,000 plus VAT. For more information please contact Nick Rawlings by email or on 07824 663659.
