About this Event
SMEs constitute 99% of all companies in the UK, making them of critical importance to the economy. In transport, SMEs and start-ups are vital across all modes, providing products and services to all parts of sector, acting as a source of new thinking and ideas and supporting jobs and investment in local communities.
Transport technology has long benefited from its many start-ups, spin-offs and small businesses, but it is vital that the industry continues to support these organisations, providing the right environment for them to flourish and grow. For these companies, having visibility of upcoming work, clear and accessible procurement processes and understanding of how transport authorities and multi-national organisations can work with them, is critical.
The ITS UK SME and Start-Up Conference seeks to explore how we can create the right environment from which smaller transport technology businesses can thrive. The Conference, taking place on 5 December at WSP’s Offices in Birmingham, will explore what Government at all levels, transport authorities and the private sector is doing to support a dynamic and flourishing SME and start up community.
The event will involve a number of key note and panel sessions focused on exploring key issues of pertinence to the SME and start-up community, followed by workshops on how industry and Government can work together in future.
Please note, although you do not need to be a start-up or SME to attend this event, priority will be given to start-up and SME representatives should all places be filled.
