Delegate testimonials

“Great venue and very good speakers. The breakout sessions were very engaging and the conference provided excellent networking opportunities”. Richard Sullivan, Scottish Government

“Prior to this event I had no involvement in social transport and little understanding of this area. I found the speakers and presentations extremely informative and they were pitched at a level that all could understand and participate in when it came to open discussions”. Maria Dick, West Lothian Council

“Very interesting conference, diverse selection of speakers and thought provoking breakout sessions”. Mark Craske, NHS Forth Valley
