Young Driver Focus 2015 – early bird places snapped up
The 50 early bird places for the Young Driver Focus 2015 conference have been snapped up in a little over a fortnight.
However, the good news for people who want to attend is that the full fee is only £25 higher than the early bird rate.
Young Driver Focus 2015 is one again being organised by Road Safety GB and FirstCar. The one-day event will be held at the RAC Club in central London on 15 April 2015, courtesy of the RAC Foundation.
The inaugural Young Driver Focus event, held in May 2014, was an unqualified success. Almost 170 people attended - a mix of road safety officers, fire and rescue personnel, police and private sector road safety professionals - 96% of whom rated the event as 'good' or 'excellent'.
The 2015 conference will once again focus on cutting young driver casualties now and in the future. As this suggests the presentations will be forward-focused rather than a retrospective look at young driver collisions and casualties.
The agenda is currently under development but is likely to follow a similar theme to last year when it comprised 11 presentations, all of which can be viewed online here.
The delegate fee is just £75 plus VAT for Road Safety GB & Academy members, and £125 plus VAT for other attendees.
There is also an opportunity for a small number of organisations to exhibit alongside the conference, and/or to sponsor the event. For more details about this contact Richard Storrs on 07702 564422.
CALL FOR PAPERS: To submit a paper or for more information about presenting at the conference contact Nick Rawlings by email.
New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
