On the theme of 'Sustainable Travel in a Changing World', Act TravelWise held its Annual Conference & AGM on 17 January 2017 in Birmingham, which was very successful and lots of positive feedback was received from the 120 delegates. SYSTRA (formerly JMP) was the main sponsor, along with WSP|Parsons Brinckerhoff and Motion. Six sessions throughout the day (as numbered below) covered various aspects of how we as transport/travel practitioners should adapt to a changing world. The conference also helped build momentum for the two Act TravelWise sector-specific forums, one focused on NHS sites and the other on travel issues for businesses.
