RHA Spring Conference & Gala Dinner 2017

Friday 31st March to Saturday 1st April

Venue: Macdonald Old England Hotel & Spa, Cumbria

This year’s RHA Spring Conference will focus on three hot topics that will have a strong bearing on the future of our industry: Brexit; the Trailblazer apprenticeship initiative; and the urgent need to improve the image of road haulage in order to attract the next generation.

The conference promises to be informative and thought-provoking, and will incorporate break-out sessions to facilitate discussion and get feedback from delegates.  There is also a significant fun element to the conference with the opportunity to attend a fantastic Gala Dinner on the Saturday night, featuring an after-dinner speaker, charity auction and the chance to socialise with others in the industry.
