Public and private sector come together at Virtual Smart Transport Conference

Public sector delegates at this autumn’s Virtual Transport Conference will gain valuable insight that will help deliver outcomes for future national and local policy.

The packed three day conference is being held on October 20, 21 and 22 and will feature over 45 speakers from across the industry that will help outline the private sector’s current and future capabilities.

Industry experts from electric mobility, last mile delivery, active travel and autonomous technology will all share their views on how they can partner with the public sector to position the UK at the forefront of future mobility.

The conference delivers on Smart Transport’s key remit to bring the public and private sector together to work collaboratively on creating exciting and innovative solutions to transport challenges in the UK.

Rachel Maclean MP, Parliamentary under Secretary of State, Department for Transport (DfT) will open up the show on day one with an update on the Government's position on decarbonisation and any derailment or positives from behavioural change seen during the coronavirus pandemic.

There will also be a host of presentations from public sector industry peers at Transport for Greater Manchester, Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, Liverpool City Region, West Yorkshire combined authorities, as well as the DfT and Department for International Trade.

As the autumn conference is being held virtually, the event will be digitally enhanced with live interactive Q&As, polls, online chat rooms and networking opportunities to help facilitate meetings between the influential speakers taking part.

Delegates who miss any content will be able to watch recordings of any sessions they have missed and reach out to speakers and headline strategic partners via email, chat and one-to-one meetings.
