Stuart Jackson, Chairman of TyreSafe, said: “The Awards are TyreSafe’s leading event of the year and celebrate and promote the outstanding work that goes on across the UK to educate the driving public about tyre safety. We are always hugely inspired and encouraged by the endeavours of both large and small organisations who use creative campaigns and activities to raise the level of awareness of tyre safety with their customers and stakeholders. We would encourage anyone who has participated in any kind of tyre safety activity, large or small, to forward an entry.”
The Briefing is a unique opportunity to network with professionals from the road safety, industry and emergency service communities. For the first time there will be a tyre-safety technology focus, as well as the usual high-calibre expert speakers presenting a programme on national tyre safety concerns and solutions. It will also see the launch of TyreSafe’s new campaign materials for Tyre Safety Month in October, highlighting the importance of tyre safety.
There is no fee to attend the Briefing and all road safety stakeholders are welcomed with a networking lunch. However, only pre-registered guests will be admitted as spaces are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations can be made using the online booking form at tyresafe.org.
Bookings for the dinner are now open, and will cost £51 for dinner only, or £151 with overnight accommodation and can be made through a form in the awards section here.
