Stage set for 2015 National Conference
309 road safety professionals will travel to Nottingham over the next two days for the 2015 National Road Safety Conference (18-19 Nov), an increase of 10% on the record number that attended last year.
Taking place at the East Midlands Conference Centre, the two-day event is being hosted by Road Safety GB East Midlands Region and co-sponsored by AA DriveTech, Colas, Pepsico and Vysionics.
There will be a total of 33 presentations spread across the main conference agenda and fringe programme, with delegates free to move between the two.
The presentations cover a comprehensive range of road safety-related topics and the speaker line up includes representatives from the DfT, Road Safety GB, National Police Chiefs' Council, CFOA and Highways England.
The Question Time session (Thurs 19 Nov) is usually one of the highlights of the event and this year the panel will field questions relating to, among other topics, speed cameras, the disharmony between road user groups, graduated driver licencing and cycle training.
There will also be 24 organisations (including the sponsors) represented at the exhibition which will run alongside the conference.
