DENSO, a leading supplier of advanced automotive technology, systems and components for all the world’s major automakers, has been unveiled as a new sponsor of the 2019 National Road Safety Conference.
The National Road Safety Conference is organised by Road Safety GB and the 2019 edition is being held in Telford where DENSO has its largest UK-based manufacturing site.
DENSO has 211 worldwide sites and 178,000 employees, more than 1,000 of whom are based in Telford.
The 2019 National Conference will take place at the International Centre in Telford on 12-13 November, and already more than 250 people have registered to attend. DENSO joins Jenoptic and Insure The Box, who have both sponsored the event for several years, as the event’s sponsors.
Alan Kennedy, executive director of Road Safety GB, said: “We are naturally delighted to have DENSO on board as a partner for the 2019 National Conference. The involvement of such a large automotive player is clearly very relevant.
“The money we raise through sponsorship and the exhibition is used to offset the costs of staging the conference, and to subsidise the delegate fee for public sector road safety professionals.
“Our aim is to make the conference as affordable as possible for local authority employees to attend, which is one of the reasons we are able to attract in excess of 300 attendees.
“However, it is very important to us that we share similar values with our partners from the commercial sector, which is why it is pleasing to note that DENSO’s vision is ‘for a safer and more eco-friendly future with fewer accidents’.
“We also admire DENSO’s philosophy, which requires the organisation and its people to ‘contribute to a better world’.”
