Last call for FTA Ireland conference

[ March 1, 2016   //   ]

FTA Ireland says that there is still just time to book a place at its Transport Manager Conference on Wednesday 9 March at the Johnstown House Hotel and Spa in Enfield, Co Kildare. 

Key speakers at the event include Andy Coram of the UK Border Force, who will discuss the steps operators need to take to ensure their vehicles are not used for the illegal transit of people into Ireland.”

With the tightening of security at Calais and the dismantling of the “Jungle” camp by the French authorities, FTA Ireland says that efforts by migrants to access Ireland and the UK are likely to spread beyond Calais.  The discovery of nine Kurdish stowaways in an Irish truck returning from Cherbourg at the weekend confirms what the Association’s members were saying last year; migrants are targeting all North European ports, not just Calais.

Cost for FTAI members is €250 plus VAT for the first delegate and €220 + VAT for subsequent delegates; for non-members €300 plus VAT for the first delegate and €260 plus VAT for subsequent delegates.

For further details or to book a place go to or call FTA Ireland on 01 844 7516.
