Highways UK, 18-19 October 2023

Join us at this year’s Highways UK event, Hall 3 and 3a, NEC, Birmingham, where we’re proud to be sponsoring the Sustainability Theatre. It will be a space where we can collaborate and share ideas to accelerate our journey to net-zero carbon, improve biodiversity, and maximise the positive impact we have on communities.

Roads will remain the most common mode of travel through to 2050 and beyond. As we enter a pivotal period for the highways sector, we’re looking forward to meeting with our partners and industry leaders to discuss how we work together to deliver a strategic road network that will continue to play a vital role in connecting the country.

You’ll find us leading and participating in discussions and talks in several theatres, including the Sustainability theatre. We’ll be exploring themes ranging from integration and collaboration to digital innovation as well as developments in hydrogen fuel, electric plant, and low carbon materials.

We’re also very much looking forward to welcoming you to Exhibition Stand 179, next to our Sustainability theatre where you’ll be able to meet many of our subject matter experts and highways team.

In a first for Highways UK, we’re delighted to welcome Caterpillar to our stand where we’ll be showcasing the Cat Command Station, which will remote connect to and operate site plant in the future. It will offer many benefits, from reducing people plant interface risks to helping tackle the skills shortage through more flexible working.

Come and join us to find out more. We look forward to seeing you there.
