Three of the 2016 National Road Safety Conference sponsors have confirmed that they will continue their support for the event in 2017.
Colas, Insure The Box and Jenoptik Traffic Solutions UK have all confirmed their sponsorship for the 2017 edition of the National Conference, which takes place at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport, on 14-15 November.
The 2017 conference is being organised by a committee drawn from Road Safety GB North West, North East and Yorkshire & Humber regions. The event will look to build on the success of last year’s conference in Bristol, which saw a record number of attendees (310).
More than 150 people have already registered to attend this year, and 14 companies have booked to participate in the exhibition which runs alongside the conference.
