Highways UK 2019

The future direction of Britain’s roads and the role they play in connectivity and easing business will be under the spotlight at the NEC Birmingham on 6-7 November for the Highways UK 2019 gathering.

Organisers say the show, billed as “the flagship event for and about roads for a modern and connected Britain”, is of interest to anyone interested in local authority and urban roads or the Strategic Road Network and covers planning, designing, building, operating and future-proofing.

The free-to-attend event comprises a wide range of content platforms, innovation showcases and a major exhibition, with 95% of the 4,000-plus visitors to last year’s show rating it good or excellent.

The content is organised in five clusters, led by sessions on “Big Thinking”, which organisers say will look at how to create opportunities by looking at how government strategy and high-level policy translates into business opportunity now and in the near future.

There will also be insights and thought-leadership from the people shaping the industry, while other components include road owner hubs, intelligent infrastructure, civil infrastructure, and sustainability and people.

Features range from 'Big Thinking' conference sessions to keynote addresses from senior personalities, focused industry briefings, innovation showcases and competitions.
