Record attendance predicted for FTA Transport Manager conferences



Attendance numbers for the FTA’s 2018 Transport Manager conferences look set to exceed previous figures, with more than 1,000 delegates already registered.

The conferences, sponsored by Bridgestone Tyres, take place around the country and each include an address by the local Traffic Commissioner (TC) on their priorities for the coming year. In addition, the TCs will conduct a mock driver hearing at each venue, giving an insight into their decision making.

Other sessions at the one-day events will include talks from the DVSA, as well as briefings on Earned Recognition, lowering emissions, Brexit, managing your maintenance provider, and smart tachographs. The conference series, also sponsored by Brigade Electronics and Microlise, offers insight into issues relevant to those using vehicles as part of their daily work and includes expert advice and guidance from leading industry speakers.

They are designed for anyone running a truck or van fleet, large or small and whatever their industry, to ensure they are up-to-date with the latest developments. The first event in the 10-venue series takes place in Yeovil on 20 September.
