Why hold the 2024 Congress in West Yorkshire? 

The Light Rail Conference prides itself as being at the forefront of all things LRT - and this is why we are excited to base our next industry leading conference at, what is soon to be, the newest urban light rail system within the UK. 
 
When the northern leg of HS2 was cancelled. The Government announced that the remaining funding would be placed back into developing better transit links across the North - including providing the funding for a new urban transit system in Leeds. 
 
Be right at the heart of the action by meeting key decision-makers and planners from the West Yorkshire Combined Authority team as they prepare for the launch of their new system.  
 
With key panel debates, meet the buyers networking and many opportunities to place your brand and offering in front of the people that matter, this is a fantastic chance to develop and build new connections and build upon all the potential that a brand new system has to offer!
