Highways UK, taking place on 18th-19th October, is the must-attend event for the highways and road infrastructure sector in the United Kingdom, featuring 10,000+ attendees, 300+ exhibitors, 350+ speakers and 70+ startups. The event is free to attend and is the place for market knowledge, innovation, and new business for the entire value chain.
Encouraging the supply chain to work together to become smarter, greener, more efficient knowing what the stakes are. That’s precisely why the need for Highways UK.
Working alongside National Highways as their official partner as well as an influential advisory board with key leaders from across the sector, Highways UK covers the key topics, issues, and concerns that matter.
Their high-level, multi-stream conference includes 12 theatres covering everything from digital construction, sustainable civil materials, research and policy and electric vehicles and alternative fuels. In 2023, their keynote stage will feature senior leaders from National Highways, Department for Transport, National Infrastructure Commission, Skanska, Balfour Beatty, Morgan Sindall, and FM Conway.
The supplier-led exhibition showcases the best of what the UK roads sector has on offer. From the latest developments in construction equipment, connectivity, road surface treatments and intelligent transport systems, the trade show floor has something aimed at every level of the supply chain. This year, they have huge support from the UK’s leading Tier 1 contractors including Kier Highways, Tarmac, Atkins, Mott MacDonald, and Arcadis.
They understand that innovation is desperately needed in this sector in order to decarbonise, which is why they offer start-ups who are disrupting the sector a free exhibition place to connect them to the UK’s most influential investors. Some of the start-ups confirmed already for this year include carbon monitoring software, smart wearable technology, e-mobility, and wall-climbing robotics.
Highways UK also takes time to recognise projects, teams and individuals that go above and beyond to change the sector for the better through their Excellence Awards which take place on 18th October. For 2023 they have new categories that focus on net-zero, social value and well as site and road safety schemes.
