UK Light Rail Conference will take place in Newcastle upon Tyne on 13 – 14 July 2021. Reconfiguring urban transport to build a better future.
The 2021 UK Light Rail Conference marks the 15th running of this international congress and exhibition that brings together professionals from across the public transport sector to share experience and best practice.
At a time when the industry has never needed a greater requirement for continuity and stability, this two-day event includes insightful and interactive presentations and debates, over 50 top-level speakers, and a busy exhibition of leading suppliers and service providers.
Delegates will learn first-hand the lessons from the Tyne and Wear Metro’s major renewals programme, as well as insights into the next exciting phase of fleet replacement, infrastructure modernisation and expansion.
The mood of the Conference in 2019 was summed up by event chair Ian Brown CBE in his closing remarks on the second day, saying that the lively debate marked “a turning point for the industry. We’ve all got a lot to look forward to.”
