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 2019 National Conference in Telford, with delegates 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 2020 National Conference will be held at The Majestic Hotel, Harrogate on 10-11 November 2020.
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. As in previous years, the conference will commence around lunchtime on Tuesday 10 November and close mid-afternoon on Wednesday 11 November.
The project team anticipates being in a position to publish an outline conference agenda by early April 2020.
Places at the exhibition, which runs alongside the conference, are allocated on a strictly ‘first come, first served’ basis – for the past six years it has been fully subscribed. We will be limiting the exhibition to around 25 stands in order to ensure delegates have a fair chance of visiting all stands.
The exhibition will be held adjacent to the main conference hall, where delegates will take refreshments. ‘Get in’ for exhibitors will be during the morning of 10 November and ‘Get out’ will be immediately after the end of the event.
The booking process for the 2020 exhibition will go live in early February, at which time the fees to exhibit will be published here. All previous exhibitors will be contacted at this point and invited to book their place. To register interest in the exhibition please contact Sally Bartrum by email or on 01379 650112.
