TRICS Consortium Limited is pleased to announce the date and location of our 5th annual TRICS Training & Development Forum, after a wait of nearly four years (our first such event since 2019).
This event is being held at the National Justice Museum in Nottingham, on Tuesday 20th June 2023. Registration will commence at 10:30 for a start at 11:00, and the event will close at 15:00.
This is a separate event to our annual TRICS User Meeting (that taking place in November from 2022 onwards with the Training & Development Forum now becoming a June event). Whilst the User Meeting is always held in London, the Training & Development Forum is held regionally in a different part of the UK on each occasion, reflecting the diverse office locations of the TRICS Community. This is also a slightly different event to the User Meeting in that it is more oriented towards the technical day to day operational side of the TRICS system. It is an event where we discuss the use of TRICS and its components and data more than at the User Meeting, which tends to be more wide-ranging across the project as a whole and covering associated transport-industry topics. To give everyone a flavour of what will be discussed at this year’s Training & Development Forum, we have pencilled in the following presentations, which are of course subject to possible amendment.
- Demonstration of Recently Added TRICS System Features
- TRICS System Developments for December 2023 and the TRICS 8 Redesign
The 2023 and 2024 TRICS Data Collection Programmes
The 2023 TRICS Good Practice Guide
TRICS SAM Surveys and the Updated Travel Plan Monitoring Report Feature
Trip Generation at Fast-Food Drive-Through Developments and Research Update
TRICS Development: Open Forum
As per the User Meeting, the TRICS Training & Development Forum is free to attend for one person from each TRICS-licensed office, with additional places for attendees from the same user office charged at £175 + VAT (this fee would also apply to any non-TRICS member organisations per attendee). Tea and coffee will as usual be provided at registration, and attendees can mix in the usual way and exchange their thoughts and ideas over a buffet lunch. Unlike the User Meeting, there will be no optional “breakout” session in the afternoon, with all presentations and discussions taking place in a single room. For those wanting to look up the location of the National Justice Museum, it is in the south of the centre of Nottingham and is easily accessible, being only a 10-minute walk from Nottingham railway station.
Therefore, please save the date in your calendars if you are interested in attending. We will be working on the booking system soon, and will send out a further email to everyone once this is up and running so that places can be booked on a first come, first served basis. Myself and the rest of the TRICS team look forward to meeting with our users once again.
