The 17th Light Rail Conference was a great success. With a sold out exhibition hall, over 55 speakers and a variety of fantastic networking opportunities, it is no wonder that so many companies are already registering their interest for 2024.

After all, 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 their 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.

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.
