The delegate booking process for the 2010 Road Safety GB Annual Conference is now open and available on the conference website.
The conference will be hosted by the Road Safety GB Mercia Region at Chesford Grange, Kenilworth, Warwickshire. The event will be held on Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 November 2010, commencing lunchtime on the Tuesday and ending mid afternoon on the Wednesday.
While planning for the conference is in its infancy at this early stage, the conference team has provisionally settled on the following themes for the four sessions:
Tuesday 16 November: Road safety – the issues
Representatives from various road user groups (e.g. young drivers, older drivers, motorcyclists etc) and road safety organisations (e.g. DfT, Road Safety GB) will be invited to talk about the road safety issues that matter to them.
Presentations will be followed by an interactive ‘Question time’ during which the audience will be able to challenge speakers and debate the issues they have raised.
Wednesday 17 November: Road safety – the solutions
Three sessions covering:
• More with less – delivering effective road safety solutions when resources are under pressure.
• Effective targeting – planning and executing a targeted intervention.
• What’s new? – a showcase of new ideas and initiatives.
More detailed information about the agenda/themes and speakers will be published as plans are firmed up.
Anyone who would like to be considered as a speaker on one of these themes should contact Tim Philpott on 07825 530346.
The delegate fees have been set as low as possible to make the conference affordable for road safety professionals wishing to attend. The full residential delegate fee is £250 plus VAT (£235 in 2009) which covers all refreshments, the two-day conference, the conference dinner, and bed and breakfast at Chesford Grange.
As was the case last year, a small exhibition will run alongside the conference, and 17 of the 20 available stands have already been snapped up by organisations keen to be represented.
