Description

Our first ever Transport Conference!

Transport in Kent is always high on the agenda. With the current improvements being made to the county's motorway network and further revision likely after any exit from the EU, it is vital that local councils have the right tools and the best practice available for their communities.

So join us for a lively and informative conference on the ever changing subject of Transport and logistics in Kent.

We look forward to seeing you - please find our latest draft programme here:
