The fourth annual FORS Members’ Conference will take place at the National Conference Centre, Birmingham, on Tuesday 15 October 2019.
This key event, which remains free to FORS members, will offer a fantastic opportunity to network with over 450 like-minded professionals and hear from a varied panel of industry experts.
The conference will explore how FORS can make road transport operators ‘Safer, Smarter, Greener’, and will provide an update on current FORS developments. Many exciting speakers have already been confirmed, including Michelin’s Edwin Farquhar, Highways England’s John Kerner, John Spottiswood from Heathrow Logistics Integration and many more.
The event will be hosted by Jo Godsmark, chair of the CILT (Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport) Outsourcing and Procurement Forum, and director of BigChange. Jo is also a trustee of an international charity Transaid that seeks to provide safe, sustainable and affordable transport to communities in need across the world. FORS is supporting Transaid this year and is inviting delegates to do likewise by making a voluntary donation when registering for the conference. FORS will match each donation to a maximum of £10 per place booked.
The conference will include an exhibition featuring FORS Associates and Affinity Partners, each showcasing products or services designed to help you meet the requirements of the FORS Standard and assist in driving-up industry best practice.
Registration for the conference will open next week and primary contacts should look out for an invitation email. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis with a maximum of two delegates per organisation. Lunch and refreshments will be provided and delegates will also be able to claim 3.5 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours which can assist in your career progression.
