Organisers of this year’s Euro Bus Expo have provided a preview of the event’s Master Class Theatre line-up. Speakers include CPT president and head of policy at FirstGroup UK’s Bus Division, John Birtwistle; MD of Nottingham City Transport (NCT), Mark Fowles; CPT’s Director of Policy Development, Steven Salmon; MD of trentbarton, Jeff Counsell and CEO of Reading Buses, Martijn Gilbert. Topics on the agenda include the Bus Services Bill, Brexit, devolution and smart ticketing. The 2016 Master Class Theatre is sponsored by SmartDrive Systems.
Event Director, Helen Conway, said, ‘The seminars at the Master Class Theatre offer the ideal way to keep in touch with the industry and find out more about the latest legislation, business developments and innovations happening right now. It’s the best opportunity of the year to hear first-hand what other operators are doing, what works and what doesn’t, what can work and what can’t. “Euro Bus Expo is the number one place to find the solutions to the challenges (in your business) that you don’t yet know exist,” said Leon Daniels, Transport for London’s Director of Surface Transport. He opened the show in 2014, and is back for 2016 hosting a Keynote session on 2 November outlining his views on “Future prospects for buses and coaches in London”.’
