Tuesday July 12, 2022 to Wednesday July 13, 2022

Reconfiguring urban transport to build a better future for our cities

Baroness Vere Light Rail Minister

The UK light and urban rail sector’s leading conference and exhibition returns to the Gateshead Hilton for 2022, with the generous support of local partners Nexus and Transport North East.

Covering two parallel halls, highlights of the 2022 schedule include:
