The Institute of Engineering and Technology’s impressive conference facilities in the heart of Birmingham are set to host a major light rail event in September.
IET: Austin Court has been named as the venue for this year’s Light Rail Summit, staged by UKTram, and the sector’s representative organisation is now inviting professionals from across the sector to take part in the high-profile event.
Lorraine George, UKTram Business Manager, commented: “With state-of-the-art facilities within a charming and historic listed building, Austin Court looks set to provide a perfect setting for top level discussions on the challenges and opportunities faced by the light rail sector.
“We will soon be announcing details of the ‘hot topics’ for discussion, together with a line-up of guest speakers, and we are already starting to take bookings for what promises to be another landmark event that’s also free to attend.”
Building on the success of previous similar events in Manchester and Edinburgh, this year’s summit will take place on September 21 and further information, including booking details, are available by emailing lorraineGeorge@uktram.co.uk.
