    CT ’19 is a two day event in Manchester that aims to bring together CTA members and friends from all parts of the UK to network, learn, share ideas and celebrate the amazing work of our sector. 

    We’ll have a packed agenda across the two days including:

    • Great opportunities to network, learn and celebrate with colleagues from across the sector.
    • A half day conference with panel discussions and member contributions.
    • CTA’s Annual General Meeting.
    • Drinks, dinner and the Community Transport Awards.
    • Interesting and practical workshops run by a mix of CTA staff and guest conveners.
    • Launch of new reports and initiatives.
    • An exhibition bringing together top suppliers to the community transport sector.

    Why are we running this event?

    When we’ve spoken to our members about what they want out of CTA events, a common theme is that they want the opportunity to come together, for more than just a day or an afternoon, with other community transport providers from across the UK, to meet new people, learn new things and celebrate, recognise and commend the work being done across the community transport sector.

    Some of you will remember the three day annual event that we used to hold in Manchester a number of years ago. With CT ’19 we want to bring back the spirit of this sort of event, taking what was best from it, building on it with new ideas and making it more affordable for the wide range of organisations that make up our membership. CT ’19 is all about coming together over two days as an exciting and varied sector, learning, sharing, networking and celebrating the amazing work done by community transport providers all across the UK.

    How much does it cost to attend?

    For £100 (£125 for non-CTA members) you’ll have access to all aspects of the event, including the conference, workshops, exhibition and the Community Transport Awards, so don’t miss out! Book here.
