The ONLY conference dedicated solely to light rail in the UK. 
The 17th Light Rail Conference was a great success. With a sold out exhibition hall, over 55 speakers and a variety of fantastic networking opportunties, it is no wonder that so many companies are already registering their interest for 2024. 
Afterall, our conferences are renowned across the sector for the quality of their speakers. Our 2023 conference featured over 55 speakers from across the light rail industry - from operators, to data analysis to overhead lines.  
We can now confirm the dates and times of our next Conference which will be held in the city of Leeds as they start to plan and prepare for theor promised new light rail system. 
The theme of the conference will be 'Looking to the future' and, as ever, we will be hearing from the key decision makers from all across the industry as we move forward towards a more sustainable future together.

Why hold the 2024 Congress in Leeds? 

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 Mayoral 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 to 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!
