make a booking

Wednesday 14th September and Thursday 15th September at Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham City Campus.

Special Events Sponsored by:

The 2022 Symposium will be held at Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham City Campus on Wednesday 14th September and Thursday 15th September 2022.

The format of the event will be the same as in previous years and include a Symposium programme filled with topical presentations, a specialist Exhibition, and plenty of opportunities to catch up with old friends and colleagues and network with new contacts.

The MOVA User Group will also be held at the City Campus on Tuesday 13th September.


For 26 years the JCT Symposium and exhibition has been bringing traffic signal practitioners together with manufacturers and to maintain a sense of community amongst signals engineers. It is intended to run as an affordable conference that is accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of experience and that encourages the exchange of knowledge, experience and good practice. Over the past few years, the symposium has consolidated its position as the UK's best conference event for traffic signals.

The Symposium & Exhibition runs over two days, and is preceded by the MOVA user group. It mixes conference style papers, the principal manufacturers, networking opportunities and organised social events in the evening. As far as content goes, the emphasis is on the signals community itself and JCT seeks submission of papers and presentations from working signal engineers, manufacturers and suppliers. The broad appeal of the programme means that papers are also welcome from policy makers, interest groups, and academics. If you would like to share your experience with the signals community then please let us know and we will do everything we can to help you including subsidising attendance at this event.


2022 will see the Symposium return to The Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham City Campus. This popular conference venue provides us with all the facilities we need for the presentations, the exhibition, and networking/social events.

The Nottingham City Campus is located centrally within the UK in the centre of Nottingham. It has excellent transport links with the rest of the country by both public transport and road. The Nottingham tram system runs directly from Nottingham Railway Station stopping outside the door of the Symposium Venue. For those travelling by road there are a number of city centre car parks located very near to the campus.
