Market Research for the DfT on Values of TimeBook Now
Start Date:28/06/2016 18:00:00
End Date:28/06/2016 19:45:00
Event Code:BGSG0319
Tuesday, 28 June 2016, 17:45 (for 18:00) - 19:45
Where: University of the West of England, Frenchay Campus, Coldharbour Lane, Bristol, BS16 1QY
Meeting Point: TBC

Richard Batley, Professor of Transport Demand & Valuation, ITS Leeds

The presentation provides an overview of the “Provision of market research for value of time savings and reliability” study by the Arup/ITS Leeds/Accent consortium for the UK Department for Transport (DfT).  It summarises recommendations for revised national average values of in-vehicle travel time savings, reliability and time-related quality (such as crowding and congestion).  These were developed using willingness-to-pay (WTP) methods, for a range of modes, and covered both business and non-work travel purposes.  The presentation examines variations in these values by characteristics of the traveller and trip, and offers insights into the uncertainties around the values, especially through the calculation of confidence intervals.

The presenter, Richard Batley, is Professor of Transport Demand & Valuation at ITS Leeds.  With a disciplinary background in transport economics, his specialist expertise covers two related areas: valuing qualitative aspects of travel in monetary terms; and forecasting the impacts in the demand for travel.  He has operated mainly at the interface between academe and public policy, and can demonstrate lasting impacts from his research, especially in the form of official UK policy and practitioner guidance issued to transport operators and transport scheme promoters.

Richard has reported research outcomes to senior public servants and politicians (to transport ministers, and to the House of Commons Transport Select Committee). This event is jointly organised and promoted by CIHT/CILT .

Room -1/64 Glamorgan Building

Speaker: Jason Hyett, Project Director, Rightacres Property Co Ltd

Cardiff’s city centre has undergone a remarkable transformation over the last decade. High quality retail development and strong urban design have helped create a distinctive and contemporary city centre which is evident in the increasing numbers of visitors coming to Cardiff.

Their Vision for Central Square is that it becomes a proud new Gateway to the Capital of Wales. A revamped Central Square will reflect Cardiff’s ambition to be amongst Europe’s most successful cities. It will build on its success and become a place defined by excellence in design, in quality, in diversity of offer. It will be a place that inspires and excites. Above all it will be a unique place – a place that captures the essence of the Principality and its values, as a place of warmth and welcome.

Come and contribute to the debate on Central Square and Public Transport Interchange.

Monday 4 July 2016, 18.00 (for 19.00) - 20.30
Where: Central London

Speaker: Kevin Richardson FCILT, Chief Executive Officer, CILT

Kevin’s presentation will draw on his deep experience working in this sector, and will cover the following areas:

•     Boardroom focus – profit versus value-added
•     Hunt or farm – how do you get business?
•     Customer needs
•     The rise of the digital native
•     Increasing customer expectation

The Supply Chain Network has been running since September 2004. It was set up as a networking and learning opportunity for people working within the supply chain in retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers. The group numbers about 50 people, with 20 typically at any one meeting. We meet about every six weeks or so in a pub in central London. Networking normally starts from 6pm onwards with snacks at 6.30pm and the 'formal' presentation from 7pm, with more networking afterwards. We aim to have a mix of 'experts' and presentations from within the group. The environment is very informal. The objective is discussion rather than a formal presenter at the front, with presenters encouraged to bring issues as well as experience.

A light buffet will also be provided.

We sometimes have spare spaces, so if you're interested in joining us, please contact Kirsten Tisdale here. - (When booking, write Supply Chain Network in the comments box).

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted.
