Organised by the team behind the established and well-attended Young Driver Focus, this new one-day event for road safety professionals will take a look at the challenge of reducing collisions and casualties among young, inexperienced powered two wheeler (P2W) riders.
There are many who believe the young PTW rider sector is often overlooked, underfunded and under-represented within the road safety community.
Young Rider Focus was conceived following a survey among road safety professionals which confirmed an appetite for a conference focusing on the key issues faced by 16-25 year-old motorcyclists, the highest risk road user group in the UK.
The event will bring together public and private sector road safety professionals from across the UK, who are committed to helping reduce casualties among young riders.
Young Rider Focus will seek to shine a light on the key issues - and to spark debate, interest and importantly, positive action.
In order to make the conference geographically accessible for as many delegates as possible, Young Rider Focus 2019 will be held in the heart of the country at Villa Park, Birmingham - home of Aston Villa Football Club.
Villa Park, one of Europe’s oldest and most famous football stadiums, has a fantastic central location. It is less than two miles from the M6, with more than 1,000 car parking spaces on site - and just a few minutes’ walk from the nearest train station.
Wembley may be the spiritual home of English football - but Villa Park is a close second.
Within the stadium, Young Rider Focus will be held in the 82 Club, a spacious, open plan event space with a relaxation area and food theatre with park views.
