An Urbanicity Alert: Transport Practitioners' Meeting 2017
Book now for the 15th Annual Transport Practitioners' Meeting
28 – 29 June 2017
Nottingham Conference Centre

The Transport Practitioners' Meeting is the annual meeting place for all transport planners, highway engineers and urban transport designers to present topical papers, share knowledge, engage in constructive debates and disseminate the latest thinking across the profession.

Now in its 15th year, 2017 TPM is shaping up to be the most exciting, engaging and educational yet! This year we have over 100 paper presentations, nine hands-on workshops, poster presentations, exciting exhibition area, complimentary networks drinks and prestigious awards dinner. PTRC is also happy to announce the theme for this years’ plenary session - Death to Transport Planning, Long Live Transport Planning.

This intriguing topic will be explored in two parts. On day one we will discuss the critical challenges which could change the fundamentals of how and why transport planning exists. Day two will take the previous days learning and focus on a discussion around how transport planning can define its own future success; What practical changes do transport planners need to make to not just meet these challenges, but to take advantage of future opportunities?

And to tie it all together, we will run a workshop on day two translating this engaging conversation into practical actions that can be taken back to the profession as a whole.

Further information on 2017 TPM can be found on the TPM Website available here.
