PepsiCo to sponsor 2015 National Road Safety Conference

Monday 9th March 2015

PepsiCo UK & Ireland* is to sponsor the 2015 National Road Safety Conference which is being held in Nottingham in November 2015.

The 2015 National Conference is being organised by Road Safety GB East Midlands region and will be held at the East Midlands Conference Centre on 18-19 November 2015.

The 2015 National Conference will look to build upon the success of the 2014 event which was held in Brighton and was widely acclaimed as the best in the event’s seven year history. More than 270 people - a record number - attended the Brighton conference, and 20 companies exhibited at the event – more than half of whom have already booked to return this year.

Honor Byford, chair of Road Safety GB, said: “We are delighted that a company of the size and stature of PepsiCo has chosen to partner with us and support the National Road Safety Conference. Their involvement is testament to the growing reputation of the event.

“One of the reasons PepsiCo is keen to be involved is the importance it places on the safety of its drivers, and I know they are keen to share their approach with delegates at the conference.

“We look forward to developing what we hope will be a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with the team at PepsiCo.”

I wondered why Pepsico would want to sponsor a road safety event, but it seems they are involved with something called 'Together for Safer Roads' which is a partnership of lots of big household names dedicated to improving road safety.
