LSCT Conference

LSCT  Conference (London Strategic Community Transport) 2020 at Butlin’s Bognor Regis

The dates for the next LSCT Conference will be the 18th and 19th of March 2020.

Please register your interest to attend the next conference here.

This annual event is specifically for Community Transport operators and their suppliers and offers CTs the platform to discuss the key issues that we all face within our sector.

Those who attend will have the chance to meet with their peers and contemporaries, as well as suppliers. It is an excellent opportunity for self-development, learning and networking and those who come along also enjoy the social side of the event.

Westway CT is coordinating and organising the conference on behalf of members of the London Strategic CT Forum.

Last year saw an increased attendance of delegates from over 100 CT operators and, as always, the invitation to attend is extended to new and emerging Community Transport operators.


To Book

If you would like to attend the conference, we offer:

  • Full Package
  • Day Entrance + Overnight Stay (Wednesday or Thursday)
  • Day Entrance only (for either or both days)
  • Exhibition Space

For detailed information about booking options, you will need to see the terms & conditions which will be released in early 2020.

The conference usually begins at 10 am on both days but times will be confirmed nearer the dates. If you are travelling by train and need to book tickets it would be best to aim to be at Butlins by 10 am so you won’t miss the beginning of the event.

It may be helpful for you to know that the main conference day is usually on a Thursday.

For those of you who have attended in previous years, you will know that Butlin’s Bognor Regis has excellent accommodation and conference facilities.


The Agenda

The agenda will be fixed nearer the date but will be relevant and linked to current issues, particularly as we wait for the announcement of the outcome of the section 19 permit consultation.

The conference always offers the chance to have stimulating debates and robust discussions, and we always aim to invite guest speakers that can influence policy and strategy.

Last year, The Department for Transport launched a consultation on the use of section 19 permits at this event.

Additional topics in previous years have included:

• Social Value

• Electric Vehicles

• The Olympic Collaboration

• Zero Hours Contracts

• Governance

• Economic Cost of Loneliness

• Risk Registers

• Diversity

• Partnership Working

• Succession Planning

• How to make politics work for you

Most of our discussions are of a general nature and relate to all CTs in the UK, but it should be noted that although some conversations will be London focused, the issues discussed will be strategic and will have relevance to CTs in general.


The Exhibition

Suppliers relevant to the CT Sector are invited to exhibit. The conference is designed to maximise discussions and interaction between CT operators and suppliers.

Delegates will have the chance to talk with Minibus Converters, Insurance Brokers, Solicitors, Booking Software Developers and many more.
