The next meeting of the Young Bus Managers Network (YBMN) has been announced for October 23-24 in the Novotel in Leeds.

The meeting will get underway Tuesday, October 23 with dinner from around 1800hrs. The popular team ‘pub quiz’ is back again and attendees will have the chance to network and enjoy the evening.

This is followed by a conference day which begins with a morning Hybrid Bus Tour of the Scott Hall Road Guided Busway on Wednesday, 24 October, after which the YBMN will be addressed by a diverse range of speakers including the highly respected Les Warneford.

Also confirmed are Dr Bob Tebb who will discuss the opportunities provided by Bus Rapid Transit and Nigel Eggleton, Marketing Director of Veolia Transdev Blazefield, which runs throughout much of Yorkshire and Lancashire.

The day’s activities should be concluded by around 1500hrs after the now-customary ‘workshop’ session hosted by the ever-friendly Reading Buses CEO James Freeman.

Rates are the same as the two previous events at £155 + VAT for the residential package and £76.50 + VAT for a non-residential one. This includes dinner and the other events on Tuesday evening.
