NBTN Members' Conference: Friday 12 November 2010
Notification: The Conference is still going ahead, regardless of yesterday's events.
Time 09:30 - 16:30
We can't believe it's almost a year since our last NBTN Members' Conference when we heard the latest thoughts from some great opinion formers about the best practice and new initiatives for reducing carbon emissions through business efficiency.
We've chosen the same venue this year – Altitude 360, Millbank Tower – as we don't think you can beat it for amazing views of London, fantastic hospitality and great networking opportunities. During the past year we've been gathering the latest information, data and evidence to provide you with the most comprehensive briefing on sustainable commuting and business travel – and we'll be sharing these with you on the day.
Full Conference Agenda.

Please note that this conference is now fully booked. If you make a booking you will be put on the waiting list.
NBTN 2009 members' conference: Friday 25 September 2009
“Reducing carbon emissions through business efficiency” was the theme for last year’s NBTN Members’ Conference took place on Friday 25 September 2009 at London’s skyscraper conference centre on the top floor of Millbank Tower. A summary of the event and presentations will shortly be on the website.
NBTN Members' Conference: Thursday 11 December 2008
NBTN showed it had all the modes covered when it comes to reducing CO2 emissions at its members’ conference in December. Whatever size or type of organisation you work for and whatever your business travel profile, be it planes, trains or cars the network had a policy to cut all emissions and save money.
It was a close call whether the best views were from the guest speakers or the windows at the latest NBTN conference held in London’s latest skyscraper conference venue, Altitude, on the 29th floor of London’s Millbank Tower in December.
