AET Membership Benefits

AET provides a forum in which professionals working in the transport sector in different European countries can meet to exchange ideas and information. At present this is done mainly through the European Transport Conference, one of the largest events of its kind in Europe, but in future there will be a membership database and a system of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) which will help members to establish contacts with colleagues in other countries.
