Brake annual conference 2018

Mar 25 | 2018

Road safety charity Brake has announced the date for its annual Fleet Safety Conference in 2018. Brake is inviting bookings from fleet operators and suppliers to attend the conference, which will take place at the Birmingham Conference & Events Centre on Friday, 25 May 2018.

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Facing the future: are you ready?’ with presentations on topics including safety through innovation, the modern driver and utilising crash data. This year, delegates will have the opportunity to choose from a range of breakout sessions in the afternoon covering areas such as routing and journey planning, electric vehicles, managing young drivers, trucks – new vehicle standards, vans – the future of delivery and recruitment and driver training. Speakers are yet to be announced. Last year’s keynote speaker was John Hix, Concession Director, FORS.

There will also be an exhibition alongside the programme with 15 exhibitors working in a wide range of service areas available to meet throughout the day.

“Brake’s Fleet Safety Conference is the perfect opportunity to hear from leading fleet safety academics and fleet operators, on how to successfully manage work related road risk,” said Ross Moorlock, Business Development Director. “The introduction of the breakout sessions into this year’s conference gives delegates additional flexibility, enabling them to shape the conference around their own interests and needs. The conference also provides an excellent networking opportunity for delegates and exhibitors and I would urge anyone responsible for at-work drivers to attend.”

Tickets are £60 from
