This year's Microlise Annual Transport Conference will take place at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on May 14 to meet increased demand.

With more than 400 delegates attending the 2013 conference, Microlise has decided to move the event to the Ricoh Arena, which has a 650-seat auditorium.

This year’s event is expected to be fully-booked with more than 400 delegates already registered.

The conference focuses on helping fleet operators reduce operating costs, improve health and safety, increase their service levels and reduce their impact on the environment.

It offers managers and directors who operate a fleet of vehicles the opportunity to stay informed about developments within the industry, gauge opinion of industry governing bodies, network with their peers and to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in technology.

Bob Harbey, executive director at Microlise, said: “The line-up of speakers this year is very impressive and is guaranteed to ensure that every delegate takes away valuable information from the day that will help them make decisions to meet the challenges of this tough industry of ours.”

With a mixture of governing bodies, like the DVSA, CILT, Department for Transport and the FTA, there will be plenty of valuable information and industry insights.

Steve Agg, CEO at CILT, will open the conference with an overview of the recently published CILT vision report, which outlines the future of the UK’s transport infrastructure.

He will also explain the thinking behind the vision and the likely impact on the industry.
