Business Forum

The text below can also be found in our Business Brochure (PDF download).

The Act TravelWise Business Forum was formed in 2017 due to demand for information sharing and networking specifically within the private sector. The growing forum welcomes companies of all sizes and at all levels of expertise in transport and travel management. The forum will offer a minimum of four networking meetings and four training events per year. Each member can send up to five delegates to each event, with the cost included in the annual fee (Act TravelWise membership + Business Forum supplement).

The purpose of the Business Forum:
• to share and exchange good practice in promoting sustainable commuting and the management of transport in the workplace
• to provide a framework for knowledge sharing on key issues across all types of business organisation including single-use sites (including SMEs and larger sites) and multi-occupant sites such as business parks
• to act as a national voice on commuter-related travel and transport matters to the Department for Transport and other government departments
• to explore external funding opportunities for the private sector in relation to investment in sustainable travel

To learn more and to get involved in the Business Forum, contact us on 020 8144 7366 or info@acttravelwise.org.
