Fleet news logo

Transport minister Andrew Jones will be a keynote speaker at the Microlise Transport Conference at The Ricoh Arena in Coventry, in May.

“We’ve made excellent progress in helping to deal with the big challenges facing the industry and I look forward to briefing transport operators, manufacturers and stakeholders on what has been achieved and our plans,” said Jones.

The conference includes a full day’s programme and is supported by focused workshops and a 3,500 square metre industry exhibition area.

The programme will once again be chaired by Quentin Willson and will feature speakers from across the industry, including transport operators, industry bodies, Government and other key stakeholders.

“We knew that with the growing scale of the conference it would be vital to have a representative from Westminster at this year’s event,” said Nadeem Raza, Microlise chief executive officer.

“We recognise the progress Mr Jones and his colleagues are making – for example approving the new Trailblazer apprenticeship and supporting the DVSA’s next generation compliance plans.

“We look forward to hearing from Mr Jones as he marks one year in the job at the Microlise Transport Conference.”

In addition to the conference programme, delegates attending in 2016 will gain access to a series of workshop areas covering a range of topics relevant for transport professionals and an exhibition area a third bigger than last year.
