Conference takes place from May 12-14 at Murrayfield stadium, with theme ‘Innovate, Integrate, Motivate,’

Bookings can now be made to attend the 2014 ALBUM Conference hosted by Lothian Buses at Murrayfield Stadium, the home of Scottish Rugby, next May. The conference theme is ‘Innovate, Integrate, Motivate.’

Innovate – how do we create idea-led cultures which help address the multiple challenges facing the industry?

Integrate – how are various transport projects, local authority ambitions and key stakeholder requirements combined to offer customer-focused, quality public transport?

Motivate – in a world of constant change, how do we ensure we motivate our teams to deliver?

The conference will address specifically these three questions by presenting a number of speakers in each field. As well as offering knowledge and expertise, the intention is for the conference to be ‘upbeat and fun’ with opportunities to network and meet with peers and exhibitors presenting products covering all operator needs.

As well as a two day conference at Murrayfield, delegates can enjoy social activities including a round of golf at the Championship links course, Craigielaw, in East Lothian; a cruise on the Forth Belle on the Firth of Forth; a traditional Scottish celebration in Ghillie Dhu, a Scottish-themed, city-centre setting, and a Gala Dinner hosted at Our Dynamic Earth, one of Scotland’s most spectacular tourist attractions, overlooking the extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat, which dominates the city skyline, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Scottish Parliament.

James Freeman, Chairman of ALBUM commented: “I am thoroughly looking forward to the Album Conference 2014 which looks set to expand on previous years. I have every confidence that our hosts Lothian Buses will provide a really excellent platform to share best practice, generate new ideas and network with colleagues. The spectacular setting along with traditional Scots hospitality promises to give us three days to remember.”
