The event, held at the Leicester Marriott hotel, will feature speakers presenting the technical aspects of compliance with tighter emission regulations, as well as new engine developments (Ricardo on lean-burn gas engines) and a speech from traffic commissioner Nick Jones about the new Welsh traffic office.
This year’s conference has a special bus focus, with a combined presentation led by Richard Harrington in Go-Ahead London’s efforts to develop an all-electric bus, as well as two examples of bus retrofit projects to meet increasing emissions standards.
Two afternoon sessions explore other topics in more detail. While the regulatory session considers the operational aspects of DVSA’s new Earned Recognition programme, the technology session considers the ins and outs of predictive maintenance, followed by a practical session on skills development and training.
The event is sponsored by Axis, CheckedSafe, Disc-Lock, Parker Racor, Pirelli, S&B Automotive Academy, Verizon Connect and Volvo.
