What’s new for 2019?
The conference committee is introducing a number of new features and enhancements for National Conference 2019 including:
A bigger, more comfortable exhibition area
The exhibition area at Telford is more spacious than we’ve ever had before, and with this in mind we will be offering exhibitors the opportunity to purchase a larger space. There will also be a seating area to make it easier and more enjoyable for delegates to take lunch and other refreshments within the exhibition area.
A post-conference drinks reception
At the end of day one (Tuesday 12 Nov) there will be a short complimentary drinks reception for delegates to be held in the exhibition area (5.00-6.00pm). This will provide an extra hour of networking before delegates depart and get changed for dinner etc.
Several new additions to the programme
Popular elements of the conference programme – including Speed Dating, the Big Debate and Question Time – will be retained alongside several new additions. As an example, on the final afternoon, rather than formal presentations this session will comprise a series of small workshops (previously known as ‘pick my brains’), and an informal session in the main conference hall which will comprise interviews hosted by an experienced presenter with ‘well-known’ guests from the road safety sector.
The 2019 programme will also include a session on behaviour change and the use of behaviour change techniques in road safety interventions, and another session covering a range of ‘grass roots’ road safety issues such as sustainable transport & road safety, public health & air quality, the transition from primary to secondary school, and funding and ‘internal politics’.
