Exhibitor & Partner Highlights at our User Forum 2022

We spoke with our exhibitors and partners at the User Forum 2022 to share their highlights from the day. 

The focus last year was ‘Connecting and Collaborating across the Railway Community’ to improve performance and reduce incidents.

We were delighted to provide our partners with an opportunity to exhibit and talk about how other products and services could complement the AssessTech offerings in the competence management space, as well as showcase our own training and consulting services.

A message from our COO, Sally Brinkley:

Our most recent User Forum held our biggest and best exhibition so far. We are proud of our partnerships and collaborations with suppliers from across the industry. It was great to see so many of our partners and customers networking in one room and hearing lots of key conversations around industry challenges and opportunities for solutions.

Make sure you SAVE THE DATE for our User Forum 2023, on Thursday 9th November at the Congress Centre, London.
