Previous workshops

Here's what delegates have said about previous Smartex workshops:

“I learned more about ITSO by lunch time on the first day than I had in last 5 years.”

“…Covered a good combination of high level technical and commercial issues that face operators, suppliers, local authorities and government.”

“I found the event informative and I have a better understanding of ITSO as a result.”

“As I am new to the industry I found the first day in particular interesting due to the detail given on the workings & practices of ITSO, which helped me greatly at understanding what ITSO does.”

“Your questions / comments were insightful and very welcome. I think with such a large group it was more difficult for people to speak up and raise questions so your interjections were particularly useful. The workshop was informative, fun and thought-provoking.”

“I particularly liked the presentations from scheme implementers – no substitute for real experience"

“I thought it provided some fascinating insights and it was great to meet all the different participants…”

“I’d like to thank you for the recent workshop and found it very informative with some really interesting information and perspectives from other organisations! The examples from other cities were particularly interesting, as well as visions for the future and other experiences, so I took a lot away from day 2 on this”
