The 12th Annual UK Light Rail Conference welcomed around 260 delegates to Manchester for two days of presentations, panel debates and exhibition focused upon the latest trends and innovation in the sector.
With a greater worldwide presence than ever before, presentations on game-changing schemes and new technology were received from 12 countries, as well as project updates on new and ongoing schemes across the UK.
With parallel streams on strategy, scheme development and funding, and technical and operational innovation, the event also featured exhibits from some of the industry’s leading suppliers and service providers as well as almost ten hours of networking with a popular drinks reception and a summer BBQ event.
Supported by the Department for Transport, Marketing Manchester, UKTram and Transport for Greater Manchester, daytime refreshment and networking sessions were hosted by KeolisAmey Docklands, with a drinks reception in the landscaped gardens of the University of Manchester hosted by international transport operator Keolis.
