Events in the Region

A programme of seminars and workshops is organised throughout the year covering all aspects of highway engineering from integrated transport solutions and traffic management, through to road design and construction, blacktop materials and quarrying, network management and procurement strategies. Breakfast and evening seminars are popular with professionals with ever-increasing workloads, so we try to provide a good selection of these, along with full day technical seminars. Our Young Professionals Groups in Bristol and Exeter are active in promoting  technical events .

We organise regular social and networking events. Because of the size of the area covered, our events are held at various locations including Bristol, Exeter, Taunton, Plymouth, Dorchester and Gloucester. One of the highlights of the South West calendar is the Annual Conference & Dinner. More information can be found on our events pages.
