Wendy Morton MP, UK Minister of State for Transport

Wendy Morton MP, UK Minister of State for Transport will present the keynote opening address live at Transport Ticketing Global on 28 June 2022.

This address follows last year’s release of the Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail, detailing the UK government’s plans to reform the UK rail industry including an overhaul of ticketing and fare setting. It is set to be the catalyst for the biggest shake-up of the industry in decades.

Transport Ticketing Global 2022, the world’s largest public transport forum event for smart ticketing and mobility professionals, will bring together delegates from around the world at Olympia, London, on 28 and 29 June 2022 to explore the latest developments in this rapidly evolving industry.

Over 100 industry leading speakers will deliver engaging sessions in the agenda-setting two-day conference on topics including the deployment of Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) & contactless; mobile-based and biometric ticketing; the use of central bank digital currency on public transport; transport data analysis; enabling MaaS; fare modelling and policies; revenue collection procurement and post-COVID UX, new customer behaviour and customer Information.

The conference will also feature an in-depth panel discussion to explore the challenges and opportunities presented by the reform outlined in the Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail, featuring insight from experts across the UK rail and ticketing sectors including senior representatives from FirstGroup, Great British Railways Transition Team, Rail Delivery Group and more.

A series of case studies will explore new international developments and deployments. They include insights into the Nordic MaaS project, NOMAD; frameworks of tariff model development for ABT at HSL Helsinki; the lessons learned by SL in Stockholm while building their ticketing system in-house over the last four years; the implementation of mobile ticketing across 15 transit agencies across multiple counties in the USA and the evolution of digital ticketing by ATAC SpA in Rome.

Among the expert speakers set to share their insights over the two-day conference programme are Juan Corro, Chief Technology & Innovation Officer, EMT Madrid; Mark Langmead, Director Revenue and Compass Operations, Translink Vancouver; Brittany Esdaile, Director – Regional Fare Systems, Sound Transit; Danielle Agius, Head of Digital Experience Strategy, LNER; Andrew Anderson, Head of Customer Payments, Transport for London; Katherine Conrad, Director, NEORide; Hallie Liao, Head of International Development, Shenzhen Bus Group and Nick Mackie, Vice President Global Head of Urban Mobility, Visa.

An extensive exhibition, running alongside the conference, will offer the opportunity for delegates to interact with the latest technologies first-hand and meet with a complete range of solution providers under one roof.
