What is TPM?
The Transport Practitioners' Meeting (TPM) is the annual meeting place for all transport planners, modellers, placemakers, highway engineers and urban transport designers. TPM brings the transport and built environment community together for two days of world class networking, idea sharing and lively debate.
PTRC is proud to announce the release of the 2018 TPM Programme! We are excited to be welcoming so many of you to Oxford this year – take a look at the programme here.
This year’s conference features two plenary sessions, ten hands-on workshops, over 100 paper presentations, numerous poster projects and some very fun PechaKucha presentations to close the event.
Networking and Social Programme
In addition to the networking opportunities available during the conference, there is also a fantastic social programme available.
For the Pre-Event Social, join PTRC and Arup for a walking tour through historic Oxford. This tour will visit the major sites of the city and give you a brief history of transport planning in Oxford. We will conclude the event at a local pub for a chance to catchup with old friends. Spaces are sure to fill up, so be sure to register today!
The TPS Sponsored Networking drinks will take place this year at the Ashmolean Museum. This annual event gives you opportunity to socialise with peers in a beautiful and historic environment.
Join TPS as we mingle over a glass of bubbles in this stunning venue.
New this year, the annual TPM Awards Ceremony will be complimentary with your ticket to the conference, subject to registration. The event this year is generously sponsored by Tracsis. Join peers and industry experts as we recognise thought leaders in the profession over a glass of wine and some nibbles.
Awards being presented:
• Lifetime Achievement Award
