Following the success of this year’s extended Light Rail Summit in Edinburgh, UKTram and the Light Rail Safety and Standards Board have announced plans for an even more ambitious event in 2022.
To be staged in Manchester on Thursday, September 15, the next summit will again include top-level debate featuring leading figures from across the sector, alongside a wealth of networking opportunities.
As it was this year, the event will also be preceded by a day of UKTram working group meetings, bringing together experts in light rail engineering, operations, and other disciplines at the same venue.
Jamie Swift, UKTram Marketing and Commercial Manager, commented: “Although plans are still at an early stage, a date has been set for what promises to be another landmark event for light rail.
“Since the summit in Edinburgh, we’ve had a lot of positive feedback from delegates which is now helping us to plan for what promises to be another ‘not to be missed’ event.”
Further information about the Light Rail Summit 2022, including details of the venue and ticketing, are expected to be announced over the next few months.
