Do not be confused. There are two UK Transport Infrastructure Summits in London this Spring. The first, ‘London Infrastructure’ takes place at Kings Place, King’s Cross, 10 March, and is a 2016 update of last year’s successful gathering.
On 12-13 April Transport Times is hosting a two-day event with a similar title ‘UK Transport Infrastructure Summit’ at Canary Wharf.
A new independent National Infrastructure Commission (see BTN 12 October) has been created, with the task of offering unbiased analysis of the UK's long-term infrastructure needs.
Former cabinet minister and transport secretary Lord Adonis will lead the commission as its first chairman and will speak at both gatherings.
The Kings Place gathering is shorter but one intriguing session (12:15) will bring together Declan Collier, chief executive, London City Airport; Andrew Harrison, managing director, Stansted Airport; John Holland-Kaye, chief executive officer, Heathrow Airport; and Stewart Wingate, chief executive officer, Gatwick Airport.
The Transport Times conference will be addressed by Robert Goodwill MP, transport minister, and on the second day (14:00) highlights aviation with the key speakers John Holland-Kaye, chief executive officer, Heathrow Airport; Andrew Haines, chief executive, CAA; and Darren Caplan, chief executive, Airport Operators Association. www.transporttimes.co.uk/conferences https://custom.cvent.com
