Tyre manufacturer Bridgestone will be giving away an Apple iPad 2 to one lucky delegate at each venue; truck manufacturer Isuzu is offering an all expenses paid, two-day trip for one to their assembly plant in Portugal, and supplier of commercial vehicle safety and control systems WABCO is offering a £200 Virgin Experience voucher.

The cost for FTA members is £325 + VAT for the first delegate and £275 + VAT for subsequent delegates, and for non-members £385 + VAT for the first delegate and £345 + VAT for subsequent delegates.
