As the industry’s leading gathering for sharing knowledge and best practice, the 14th running of the UK Light Rail Conference and exhibition brought together over 250 tramway, light rail and metro professionals from around the world to Manchester for two days of lively debate on 23-24 July.
The packed schedule saw over 50 speakers from across the industry join us for fascinating presentations and stimulating panel debates –all in a climate of fundamental shifts in attitude towards urban mobility and the environment and a need for more focused passenger engagement.
With two parallel streams covering topics such as on urban development strategies; sustainability and the environment; the growing role of technology, and data privacy concerns; innovative vehicle and construction methodologies; safety, security and risk management; and new product launches. The conference was co-located with a busy exhibition from some of Europe’s leading transport product and service providers.
Delegates this year were also treated to a networking evening hosted by international mobility specialist Keolis, and a walking tour of Metrolink’s new £350m Trafford Park Line, courtesy of event partners MPT.
The mood of the Conference was summed up event chair Ian Brown CBEin his closing remarks on the second day, saying that this year “actually marks a turning point for the industry. We’ve all got a lot to look forward to.”
Matt Johnston,Managing Director of Mainspring, added: “We saw a far greater level of interaction at this year’s event. The role of technology is increasingly evident – in improving the passenger experience, as well as in how we plan, design, construct and operate both new and existing tramways and light rail systems.
“Despite the continued uncertainty around Brexit, the mood amongst the audience was overwhelmingly positive; events such as this are crucial in enhancing the sharing of experience as we all look to a bright future for the mode.”
