Highways UK will return to the NEC on 7/8 November 2018. The event comprises a multi-stream conference combined with a major exhibition. It is free to attend.

Highways UK is for the people and organisations involved in the planning, designing, building, operating and future-proofing of the UK's road network. We are constructing the event around four hubs focussing on Highways England and the strategic road network, the emerging subnational transport bodies, local authorities and urban mobility. And with additional content contributions from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, Highways UK will offer truly comprehensive learning, networking and business opportunities.

The Intelligent Infrastructure Challenge and Materials Innovation Hub both provide tech and civil engineering product innovators a unique opportunity to showcase their creations to senior highways clients.

And if that wasn't enough we have also launched the Highways UK Laureates to celebrate the extraordinary achievements exhibited by key individuals in the UK highways sector.

Registration for Highways UK will open on 18 June and we will launch our detailed programme of events shortly after.

If you would like to get involved in Highways UK at a time of great opportunity for the sector, do email me andrew.dowding@highways-uk.com to discuss what this highly innovative and inclusive event can do for you  

The 2017 event attracted 3,017 delegates, 140 exhibitors and 153 speakers. You will find a full review of the event, including photos, tweets and presentations here
