The TDI is returning to London to hold our 11th event on Tuesday 24th September, 2019. The event will be held at 15Hatfields in London, a short walk from the London Underground stations of Waterloo, Southwark or Blackfriars. 

This event will be focusing around Last Mile Delivery and also Department for Transport Data Strategy / Standards. We want to see what the world of Last Mile Delivery looks like, and could look like for the public and private sector, whilst also discovering what DfT is planning to help improve the data scene for the UK.
