Road Haulage Association Returns to Microlise Transport Conference With Workshop Programme
The UK’s only trade association dedicated solely to the needs of UK road transport operators – the Road Haulage Association (RHA) – will once again play a central role at the upcoming Microlise Transport Conference, taking place on the 16th May at The Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

In a dedicated workshop area, the RHA’s policy team, led by Rod McKenzie, Director of Policy & Public Affairs, will deliver a programme of short presentations that seek to lift the lid on a range of key issues not covered as part of the conference’s main stage agenda.

Amongst the topics being covered are environmental performance, clean air zones, investment in road infrastructure and diversity in the transport industry. RHA partner Backhouse Jones will also feature, with Solicitor and Director Andrew Woolfall discussing the implications of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), coming into force in the UK on the 25th April.

“The Microlise Transport Conference is the key date in the industry calendar for discussing the key topics and learning about the future of our industry,” said Richard Burnett, Chief Executive at the RHA. “We’re pleased to be playing a role in the event and engaging with delegates on a number of important issues where the RHA is playing a role in engaging with government to represent the needs of road transport operators.”

The Microlise Transport Conference is free to attend and has grown rapidly in recent years, doubling in size since 2014. It is now Europe’s largest road transport conference and features a main theatre agenda, four speciality workshop areas, as well as an exhibition featuring around fifty companies and industry organisations.

“We have worked closely with the RHA for a number of years and value their input in our wider conference programme,”
said Bob Harbey, Executive Director at Microlise. “Both organisations share similar values and a dedication to improve an industry that is vital to the UK economy. The Microlise Transport Conference seeks to empower delegates with new knowledge through access to thought leaders. The programme this year promises to do just that.”

Hosted by industry lobbyist, journalist and producer Quentin Willson, the Microlise Transport Conference main agenda features speakers from DHL Supply Chain, Royal Mail, Innovate UK and more. A panel session will also feature senior executives from DAF Trucks UK, MAN Truck & Bus UK, Iveco and Scania Great Britain, offering a unique opportunity to hear from the truck manufacturers.

The Ricoh Arena in Coventry is conveniently located in the centre of England within a two-hour drive of 75% of the population.
