Ten days have passed since we hosted TRANSPORT Smart Class, Scotland 2018 at the Radisson Blu Glasgow. Here’s what some of the stakeholders in attendance had to say:

The speakers were excellent and the roundtable speed dating style discussion sessions were also really useful” – City of Edinburgh Council • “An excellent event with a range of interesting subjects covered. The half day format is ideal”, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport • “Thanks again for organising the excellent event last week – the mix of speakers and delegates was absolutely superb, and the talks were incredibly informative all round” – Perth & Kinross Council • “A very useful session”, CalMac Ferries • “An enjoyable event and we had several very interesting discussions.
