Traffex: Seeing is believing

 ADEPT is pleased to be a partner at the Traffex: Seeing is believing event on 24 & 25 June at Bruntinthorpe in Leicestershire.

An outdoor exhibition offering real environments, real full-scale demonstrations and real conditions...

That's what makes this biennial highways industry event so unique. Combining free to attend seminar sessions with an outdoor exhibition of displays and demonstrations, Traffex Seeing is Believing provides highways and transportation practitioners with the perfect environment in which to keep up to speed with the very latest innovations from the industry.

With seminar sessions covering everything from intelligent transport systems to innovation in the road markings sector and many of the biggest names from the industry exhibiting, the show provides organisations with a unique platform from which to demonstrate multiple products and services without the restrictions necessitated by an indoor-only event.

For more information and to book your place please visit the Traffex website.
