LowCVP’s 2018 “Moving North” Conference is held in association with the Mayor of Greater Manchester, the Northern Automotive Alliance and Transport for Greater Manchester. It is supported by Manchester Metropolitan University.
The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership’s (LowCVP) 2018 ‘Moving North’ Conference, opening with a keynote address by the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, will focus on the challenge of cutting carbon emissions and air pollution, and seizing the business opportunities for automotive and fuel supply companies in the Northern Powerhouse.
The event, on Thursday 12 April 2018, is being held in association with the Mayor of Greater Manchester, the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM). It is supported by Manchester Metropolitan University and sponsored by GEFCO and Uber.
The conference features a range of high profile speakers including:
- Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester
- Mike Hawes, Chief Executive, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders
- Ian Constance, Chief Executive, Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC)
- Lawrence Davies MBE, Chief Executive, Automotive Investment Organisation
- Jon Lamonte, Chief Executive, Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM)
- Andy Eastlake, Managing Director, Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP)
- Carol Holden OBE, Chief Executive, Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA)
- Jon King, Business Development Consultant, Warwick Manufacturing Group
- Dave Roberts, Director, Smart Interventions, EA Technology.
‘Moving North’ will look at the future of transport in the Northern Powerhouse region (and beyond) – a future that will be driven by ever-tighter regulation of carbon dioxide emissions and pollutants which damage air quality – and the resulting opportunities for businesses in the automotive, fuels and related sectors.
The event, and the drinks reception which follows the conference, will also be an important networking opportunity, as it will bring together a number of different sectors, including the automotive and energy industries, governmental/public sector organisations, ‘new mobility’ companies and other stakeholders.
