Thought Leadership

Leading debate on the future of cities, transport and infrastructure

Interchange is a thought leadership initiative facilitated by London Transport Museum in partnership with Gowling WLG and Thales. It is a programme of lively, thought-provoking and informed discussions and debates for leading thinkers and decision-makers to consider the challenges and opportunities facing cities, transport and infrastructure, today and tomorrow. This contemporary programme evolves as the transport industry grows and changes; by keeping our finger on the pulse we ensure we are discussing the right issues at the right time. These invite-only events are a benefit of Corporate Membership of London Transport Museum and are attended by senior decision-makers from across the transport industry.

The Interchange agenda builds upon the Museum’s role as a platform for debate and creativity for the wider transport industry. Topics are based on the most relevant subjects affecting business today. These include smart cities, sustainable logistics, road pricing, autonomous vehicles, infrastructure investment, and the promotion of engineering as a career choice.

Interchange: moving thinking forward
