Bookings are now open for the next Young Bus Managers Network (YBMN) conference, which takes place in Scotland for the first time.

The event will be held at the four star Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow from October 19-20.

The line up of speakers includes Tim O’Toole, FirstGroup CEO, as keynote speaker to start the agenda the evening of Wednesday, October 19.

On the Thursday the conference will hear from Tom Bridge, MD at Stagecoach West Scotland and Andrew Jarvis, MD at Stagecoach East Scotland, along with Ralph Roberts, MD at McGills and Elsie Turbyn, who has overseen the re-branding of National Express bus services as Xplore Dundee.

A senior director, to be confirmed, from Alexander Dennis, will also be present.

Alex Hornby of the YBMN committee said: “We are conscious that we’ve headed further afield than usual for our next conference, and would encourage delegates to book their places and travel early to take advantage of the great offers available.

“As ever, the committee is very grateful for those presenting to us as part of another star-studded programme and look forward to a great gathering of future industry leaders in Glasgow. It promises to be one of our best conferences yet.”
