Outline programme themes

We'll be revealing the full programme shortly with a range of excellent speakers.

In the meantime, the main areas under discussion across the day are:

Session 1: Launching the TfSE draft transport strategy for consultation report

* Welcome

* What is the South East: the nature of the region and the interrelationships between transport infrastructure, economic growth, the environment and social inclusion

* TfSE transport strategy briefing: headlines from the draft transport strategy

Session 2: Making the South East a better place

Panel and Q&A with stakeholders explore the ambition underpinning the transport strategy and the intrinsic connection between people, mobility, development, the environment, health, economics and place

Session 3: What users want in 2050

A range of perspectives from business leaders and transport user groups who will set out their expectations of what they will want from the South East's transport system in 2050

Session 4: Making it happen

TfSE's transport strategy will be delivered against the backdrop of an uncertain future and the transition to a low carbon economy. With disrupters such as zero emission vehicles, artificial intelligence, big data, connected and self-driving vehicles, shared ownership and changing work patterns, how do you develop the confidence that you are on the right path?
