Highways UK is for the people and organisations involved in the planning, designing, building, operating and future-proofing of the UK’s road network. It is not a trade show, but is positioned to attract and capture strategic planning and thought leadership at the leading edge of UK road infrastructure development, especially at the intersection of asset management and intelligent infrastructure.

What’s on?

Highways UK includes multiple content streams across a number of different stages – the scale, richness and quality of what is on offer is why the event has been dubbed the Glastonbury for the roads sector!

The event is part conference, part exhibition, part industry briefing, part supper, part socialising and part networking. The proven and vibrant format is designed to combine thought leadership, insight and information exchange together with the provision of a route to market for vendors.

Most of the what is on offer is free to attend – you only pay for the Highways UK Conference (8th November), Highways People (9th November) and The Highways UK Supper.

The main events are:

  • The Highways UK Conference
  • Highways People (new)
  • Safer Highways UK (new)
  • The Intelligent Infrastructure Hub & Challenge
  • Keynote Addresses
  • Industry Briefings
  • The Highways England Theatre
  • The Highways UK Supper


Highways UK is a major event bringing together those responsible for the planning, designing, building, maintaining, operating and future-proofing of the UK’s road network.

Highways UK is the place to discover what these changes mean in practice and how your organisation can profit from this exciting new era for the UK’s highways sector. We look forward to welcoming you to our stand where you can speak with one of our technical advisors regarding our services, geosynthetic and geogrid products.
