Highways UK is a major annual gathering of the UK’s road infrastructure sector, with the key influencers and decision makers attending in large numbers, attracted by the extensive free-to-attend high-level conference programmes and access to Highways sector client authorities. Over the last few years we have consistently achieved a 95% visitor satisfaction rating of excellent or good – which is an exceptional response within the events industry.
Described in its first year by the then Roads Minister as a major new event in the transport calendar, Highways UK has subsequently been likened within Ministerial dispatches as the Glastonbury and Woodstock for the roads community.
Highways UK is an opportunity to learn about the changes and innovations in the sector and meet the innovators, constructors, suppliers and client authorities in a neutral environment to network, learn and do business.
Highways UK offers a high-level multi-stream conference combined with a major industry exhibition. Core to its success is engaging with the major road owners and authorities, which attracts tier 1 suppliers and cascades through the entire supply chain. It sets out to bring together at scale the influencers and decision makers across the sector and puts them in a neutral environment to network, learn and do business.
What’s in it for buyers?
Buyers get to learn about the changes and innovations in the sector and meet the innovation developers and vendors. Buyers also get a platform to demonstrate to client authorities how they are making use of innovations as a USP.
What’s in it for sellers?
Highways UK offers sellers an opportunity to network and meet with the key decision makers and big-ticket specifiers in the Highways supply chain. The event is more than a traditional byer-meets seller expo, and offers sellers an independent platform to showcase their capabilities and expertise.
