- The Quiet Seminar Theatre focused on retiming deliveries, quiet equipment, real-life case studies of out-of-hours deliveries; getting the buy-in from local authorities; driver training and the PIEK scheme.
- The Safe Seminar Theatre focused on cycle safety initiatives, the Safer Lorry Scheme, Clocs, vulnerable road user training for commercial vehicle drivers, and current initiatives and campaigns.
