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.
National Road Safety Conference - background information
The 2014 conference and exhibition, held at The Grand, Brighton in November 2014 was fully subscribed and a resounding success. Around 270 people attended the event and 23 organisations participated in the exhibition which runs alongside the conference. It is anticipated that similar numbers will attend in 2015, when event is being hosted by Road Safety GB East Midlands Region and will be held at The East Midlands Conference Centre on 18-19 November 2015. The event is being 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 comprise three sessions on the afternoon of Wednesday 18 November, and the morning and afternoon of Thursday 19 November. The project team anticipates being in a position to publish an outline conference agenda by early April 2015.
Why is Road Safety GB seeking commercial partners for the conference?
In order to make the event affordable as possible in these financially constrained times, delegate rates for Road Safety GB members will be heavily subsidised. To make the event viable at the subsidised rates, Road Safety GB is looking to raise sponsorship funding to cover the costs of staging the conference.
In 2014 three organisations - Colas, AA DriveTech & Susex Safer Roads Partnership – co-sponsored the event.
What will the partners get for their investment?
First, by association, you will be providing support to Road Safety GB and playing an important part in helping ensure the success of this important event – not just this year, but in future years as well. Perhaps most importantly, you will be helping to extend understanding of road safety issues, and providing support to road safety professionals in their work to reduce crashes and casualties. In return, your branding will appear prominently on the event website and at the event itself. You will also be mentioned in all correspondence and news updates about the event. The standard sponsorship package includes a presence at the exhibition and two full residential delegate places at the conference.
If you have any other specific requests or requirements we will be very happy to discuss these with you, and will do our best to meet them.
