Paul Hutton

An announcement about two innovative open source safety solutions for roadworks zones on dual carriageways will launch a new feature of Traffex 2019 – live news conferences from the exhibition floor at Europe’s biggest highways and transport technology show this year.

Highway safety and mobile traffic product supplier Highway Care will speak in the Trading Floor Theatre at 9.35 on Tuesday 2 April about its solutions to keep workers safe behind barriers and remind drivers to keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front, including a very innovative use of VMS.

The announcement is one of several lined up to be made during the three day event, where the breaking news alerts are generally presented while other theatres are taking a break, in order to maximise the opportunity to hear them first hand.

Traffex Event Director Adrian Tatum said, 'We are always striving to offer extra value to our exhibitors and the Trading Floor news alerts will allow them to add an extra dimension to their promotion at Traffex 2019. 

'To hear first hand some big news stories will really add to the buzz around the exhibition floor.  For those who are tied up in networking at the time, we’re pleased to say that we’ll be filming these announcements and making them available as soon as possible on our website, adding even more value for those taking part.'

The Trading Floor also features a range of exhibitors making 20-minute presentations about their innovations on display at Traffex. For the full programme and descriptions, click here
