Collaboratively Speaking: Sharing solutions to meet local road demands

Our flagship annual conference, networking event and awards ceremony, brings together the whole highways community and celebrates the amazing work that is taking place in our sector.

The event provides an opportunity to learn about new innovations and technology, share experiences, receive updates from the DfT and network across two days in the glittering setting of the Ballroom at the Winter Gardens.

It is important to us to ensure our events are accessible to the whole highways community. We do this by offering fully funded places for public sector delegates. Fully funded places include accommodation, transport to and from the hotel to the venue, catering and refreshments. This is funded by revenue generated through sponsorship and exhibitor sales.

And it works. This year’s event saw more than 400 delegates attend over the two days, with representation from more than 70 different highway authorities from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as the Department for Transport (DfT), academia, industry associations, the supply chain and media.
