The Department for Transport and Transport Systems Catapult are jointly hosting a conference on accessibility & innovation. This event aims to bring together transport providers, organisations representing disabled people and SMEs to stimulate greater levels of innovation in the design and delivery of an accessible transport system.

Taking place on Thursday 23rd March at Church House, Westminster, the high level speakers will encourage and stimulate debate on how innovation can and must improve accessibility across the transport network.

If you would like to attend this event, please register your interest. Please note, we are expecting strong interest in this event and so will only be able to accommodate one person from each organisation. Only those with a ticket will be admitted on the day.

In addition to presentations, there will also be an exhibition area. If you are interested in exhibiting, please contact Nick Callaghan via email at or by telephone on 01908 359999 ext 1162.

There will also be an opportunity for a small number of organisations to make a two-minute pitch to the audience on the day, with the aim of bringing together those with issues requiring innovation and those who may be able to assist.

If you are a transport provider with a challenge that requires innovation, or you have a product, service, or idea that you wish to promote on the day, please contact us.

Church House is accessible from the Great Smith Street entrance. The venue has induction loop facilities and we will be providing sign language interpreters. If you require any further assistance, please contact us.
