National Conference: sponsors renew for 2018

10.38 | 11 April 2018 | |

All three of the 2017 National Road Safety Conference sponsors – Colas, insurethebox and Jenoptik Traffic Solutions UK – have confirmed that they will continue to support the event in 2018.

The 2018 National Road Safety Conference, the 10th edition of the annual event, will take place at The Grand in Brighton on 27-28 November. 2018 will be the second time the conference has been held in Brighton, with the 2014 event also staged at the same iconic venue.

More than 100 people have already registered to attend the conference which is being organised by a committee drawn from Road Safety GB South East region.

Steve Horton, Road Safety GB director of communications and a member of the conference planning committee, said: “We’re naturally delighted that all three of our 2017 partners will be supporting National Conference again this year. We firmly believe in long-term partnerships and have formed excellent relationships with all three organisations.

“The financial support provided by our sponsors is used to offset the costs of staging the conference, and to keep delegate fees for attendees from the public sector as low as possible – a key reason why we get such healthy attendance at National Conference.

“We thank Colas, insurethebox and Jenoptik Traffic Solutions UK for their continued support and – while they make no demands on us – we will be working with each of them to deliver a return on their investment.”
