IRTE Conference 2016 rush: overflow hotel available 31 August 2016

Space is fast running out for delegates wanting accommodation at the 2016 national IRTE Conference on 28 September, at Eastwood Hall, Notts, following record bookings.

Rooms at the hotel venue are now extremely limited and the organisers state that, while they will endeavour to accommodate more delegates on site, they may now be booked into The Derbyshire Hotel, a 15-minute drive from the venue.

For those attending the pre-conference dinner, hosted by senior traffic commissioner Beverley Bell and England Rugby legend Ben Kay on 27 September, transport will be provided to and from the overflow hotel.

This year’s IRTE Conference theme – Driving fleet operational efficiency, profitability and compliance – has clearly struck a chord with the transport industry.

Delegates will hear from Beverley Bell on key strategic objectives of the traffic commissioners, who will also provide a legislative update on O licence obligations.

The technology keynote will be delivered by LowCVP’s Andy Eastlake, reviewing the implications of technologies from multi-fuel engines to hydrogen power, hybrids, range extenders, platoons and autonomous vehicles.

Other speakers include: Ricardo’s Andy Noble on Euro 7; and Carlsberg’s Philip Thompson on the firm’s transformational fleet efficiency project.

There will also be sessions on selecting better trucks, as well as cutting operational costs and improving sustainability, with Dr Phil Greening, of Heriot Watt University, and David Cebon, of Cambridge University.

The IRTE Conference is sponsored by Shell, along with ATE, Brigade Electronics, Bullwell Trailer Solutions, FTA (Freight Transport Association), FORS (Freight Operator Recognition Scheme), Microlise, Pirelli, r2c online, TruTac and Volvo Group.
