This unmissable one-day conference is packed with ideas and influential speakers – 27 of them in total, many of whom will be available to talk to throughout the day on their stands.

It’s a completely fresh approach to conferences – mixing stands and theatres so you can enjoy both presentations and in-depth conversations.

You can pre-book sessions once you have made a ticket booking, or turn up on the day and build your programme as you go. Refreshments are included in the pre-booked ticket price of £150 (plus VAT). 

 

 

Programme Overview

 

Within the conference we have three theatres that will be running a full programme of plenary speaker sessions, interactive sessions and panel discussions.

 

Theatre one -  Managing people in a connected world

These sessions focus on the human aspects of how opportunities like Artificial Intelligence, autonomous transport, the gig economy, lack of new entrants and other ‘soft’ aspects are affecting the future shape of the industry. View the full programme for theatre one.

 

Theatre two - Developing strategies to optimise operations

The combination of an exponential growth in last mile deliveries, too many vehicles and not enough tarmac, means government is demanding more efficient and novel ways of getting goods to customers. These sessions look at the big picture and how businesses need to redesign their operations to survive. View the full programme for theatre two.

 

Theatre three - Tools, technologies and the future of transport

Despite all the hype about self-driving vehicles, the reality is they are still a long way away, but other technologies, such as gas, hydrogen and electricity are reshaping the way our fleets look and work. New ideas such as Virtual DCs also call for new approaches. All will be discussed in this theatre’s packed programme. View the full programme for theatre three.
