Moving target

NCE launches an initiative to get integrated transport moving.

Integrated transport is becoming more than a philosophy. A new marketplace is beginning to evolve and many companies will be looking to take advantage of the anticipated £100bn plus spend on developing Britain's integrated transport infrastructure and operation over the next 10 years.

To provide the construction, transport and local government markets with what they need to exploit the growing opportunities comes the new concept Interchange.

The Interchange event is a radical mix of conference - the Exchange, exhibition - the Showcase, and a prestigious awards ceremony. All will take place between 3-5 April 2001 at the Excel exhibition centre in London's Docklands.

The event is being backed by all the major Government bodies involved in developing integrated transport, as well as an unprecedented alliance of organisations and companies from the public sector and the transport and construction industries. This impressive level of support is reflected in prominent figures who have agreed to sit on the Interchange advisory board.

Interchange is being developed and promoted by Emap MEL through Emap owned titles including Construction News, Local Government Chronicle, Rail Magazine and Fleet News, as well as NCE.

The event is based on the principles of information exchange, networking and the opportunity to showcase new products.

Through Interchange it will be possible to establish new relationships, meet potential consortia partners, clarify government policy and source new finance. Companies will also get an opportunity to demonstrate their new products or services.

We will begin preparing the ground for this seminal event in August this year by launching an interactive website. This will give the integrated transport community a forum to exchange views and information.

The new site will also drive 'Interchange Exchange'.
