Operating Coaches in London Workshop – Can we deliver the service our customers expect?BOOK NOW
23/09/2019 11:00:00 - 23/09/2019 14:00:00

When: 23 September 10:30 (for 11:00) - 14:00
Where: Hilton Garden Inn, Eastern Perimeter Road, Hatton Cross, London, TW6 2SQ

The Coach has an important role to play in London. With a large network of scheduled services together with private hires for tourism, events and recreation, their presence is felt on London’s streets and meets a significant demand for travel, with the guarantee of a seat and at affordable prices. However, is the infrastructure there to meet current demands?

With rising population, increasing usage on London’s highway network and kerb space, there are significant challenges for the Coach Operator to provide excellent customer service for its passengers. However, the benefits of coach travel tend to be overlooked by many policy makers and opinion formers, whilst many in London see them as an unwelcome intrusion on the roads they live and work in.

The London Tourist Coach Operators Association (LTCOA), in association with the CILT, is hosting a workshop on Monday 23 September to highlight these concerns, to understand the challenges faced by those who manage the road network in London and other road users, and to develop a plan of action to work closer together going forward for the benefit of all.

Paul Sainthouse, President of the CILT (UK) and Managing Director of Dawsongroup Bus and Coach Ltd will set the scene and provide a strategic overview of the challenges. Bruce McVean, Strategic Transportation Group Manager from the City of London will examine the future of coaches in the City following the publication of their Transport Strategy earlier in the year. 

We also welcome speakers from Transport for London and the City of Westminster, as well as Matt Winfield, the London Director of Sustrans who will examine the issue of sharing road space with cyclists and challenge as to how different modes of transport can co-exist safely.

The day opens with registration at 10:30 during which tea and coffee will be served. The workshop itself gets underway at 11:00 with Stephen Telling, Chairman of the LTCOA opening the event, followed by the speakers. This will be followed with a Questions and Answers session before the formal part of the workshop concludes at 13:30. However there will then be plenty of opportunity for networking over a buffet lunch until 14:00.

The workshop will be held in the Hilton Garden Inn, Eastern Perimeter Road, Hatton Cross, London, TW6 2SQ, close to Hatton Cross Underground and Bus Station.

This day is a must, not only for those who work in the Coach Industry, but anyone who has an interest in the safe operation of London’s road network.

Refreshments will be provided.

Making Warehouse Technology Investments Attractive For Your BusinessBOOK NOW
03/10/2019 10:00:00 - 03/10/2019 14:45:00

When: Thursday 3rd October 2019, 09:30 Registration 10:00 - 14:45
Where: Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa, Fawsley, Near Daventry, Northants, NN11 3BA

Long term investments in warehousing technology can too often be considered as a lower priority than investing in other areas of the business. It is important, therefore, to align such large-scale investment needs with the overall business strategy and to demonstrate accurately the value of such investments to ultimate business decision-makers.

This roundtable will explore how you can ensure such business strategy alignment, build complete and robust business cases, adopt the most appropriate solution design approach and gain sponsorship for such key, long-term investment decisions.

You will benefit from an open and honest cross-company discussion, based on real life examples of what has worked well and also where end results have been below what was expected. A round-table attendee take-away will be a pragmatic checklist of things to consider and address for such future important projects.


Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted by the host, Fortna, whose prerogative it is to accept or decline, without reason, a delegate’s attendance.

Planning the Infrastructure to Support the Bexley Growth StrategyBOOK NOW

Where: Peter Brett Associates, 10, Ashford Court, 1 Dover Place, Ashford, TN23 1FB
Meeting Point: Reception

Speaker: Tiffany Lynch, CMILT,MTPS, Infrastructure Strategy Manager, London Borough of Bexley

The London Borough of Bexley- in South East London, between Greenwich and Dartford- adopted a radical growth strategy at the end of 2017. Surrounded by major growth nodes already associated with developing the Thames Gateway, Bexley has come relatively late to the regeneration game. The ambition? To deliver up to 31,500 new homes and 17,000 new jobs over the next 30 years – A big jump from previous plans.

Tiff will explore the development of Bexley Council’s Growth Strategy and report on the continuing journey to secure commitment to the transport strategy that is needed.  Issues covered will include extending Crossrail to Ebbsfleet, Transit Oriented Development, a new Local Plan, the London Plan and the Mayor’s Transport Strategy (to follow or not to follow?). And that challenging funding gap……

Tiff has 35+ years’ experience as a Transport Planner/Strategist in the private and public sectors. She has a long association with transport planning issues in Kent, having worked for Kent County Council, Dartford Borough Council and PBA (particularly projects in/around Ebbsfleet/ Kent Thameside).  Other roles have included bus planning in East Sussex and broader transport planning in London Docklands.

This is a joint event with the Transport Planning Society.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

June 2020
Traffic | Safety | Roads – An Interactive Event (Current and Topical Issues affecting the Road and Traffic Safety Agenda)BOOK NOW
08/06/2020 18:30:00 - 08/06/2020 20:00:00

When: 08 June 2020 18:00 (for 18:30) - 20:00
Where: Reading Town Hall, Blagrave St, Reading, West Berkshire RG1 1QH
Meeting Point: Soane Space

Speaker: Road Safety Consultant – The Graham Feest Consultancy incorporating the UK Road Safety Network

This is an interactive session incorporating presentation, debate/ discussion and opinion on a range of topical issues which are currently influencing the road and traffic safety agenda. A brief introduction will look at the current road casualty figures and this will be followed by a randomly selected number of topics hidden behind a grid upon which the remainder of the spontaneity delivered evening will proceed. The breadth of the discussion will be in the hands of the people participating and will provide no doubt for some strong opinion and lively discussion. The grid which contains some thirty subject areas will never be fully exhausted as experience has shown that rarely to reveal more than three or four in the course of the session depending of course on how the debate proceeds.

Whilst the topics are unknown it could be that you become forced take issue with the presenter as he  may dismiss the lowering of the drink drive limit;  stun the real value of introducing a graduated licensing system; considers that LGV’s on the motorway should only be permitted in the inside lane; people who speed should be disqualified on first offence for at least six months and drivers or their passengers who fail to wear seat belts should be given a minimum fine of £1,000 with a licence endorsement of at least 6 points. Well you need to come and see if these are the values of the speaker and if the topic arises then you might just be able to put your point of view across.

Whatever the topic there will be an opportunity for knowledge gain from both presenter and participants.
