High level review on the importance of transport and economic prospects in Wales.

Why should I attend?

The 2018 agenda has been fully updated based on market feedback to provide new information on air, rail and road developments together with an update from the Welsh Government.

As well as providing a forum to review the new rail franchise and its key components, the event will also cover the expansion of Cardiff Airport, the Cardiff Metro project, a funding update, and the impact of the Swansea Electrification project on transport infrastructure. The day will also focus on the all-important question of how to derive the greatest economic benefit across the region through transport development.

The 2018 programme will feature a special section on the creation of sustainable public transport networks, as well as commentary on:

  • What impact will the receipt of more funding and new transportation plans for the Metro Central scheme mean for the region?
  • What role can transport infrastructure in Wales play in developing the new Western Powerhouse?
  • What role and limitations can transport have in economic development including skills?
  • Current thinking on the creation of progressive transport hubs

With transport playing a critical role in supporting economic growth, infrastructure optimisation, enhanced supply chain efficiency and job creation, this 1-day conference is a must-attend event for any transport professional operating in Wales.
