National Modeshift Convention & Team Modeshift National sustainable Travel Awards

We’ve been running our annual Convention every year (with the exception of 2020 when we went online) to bring our Members, Partners and Supporters into one space to grow our knowledge, share best practice and recognise great examples across the country.

The event takes place over two days with an awards evening on the first day.

Its open on a first come first basis for our Members and Partners. Our local authority Member packages include a space to attend and a discounted rate for additional spaces.  If spaces are made available, non-members can purchase tickets at the full rate.

A call for contributions is shared with all Members of Modeshift in the Spring and the two-day event takes place in November each year.

Members and Partners are encouraged to look out for updates in our Modeshift Matters weekly digest, follow our social channels, look out for our dedicated events emails and attend our other events and meetings for updates.
