The pandemic, lockdowns and economic fallout brought to light the inadequacies of systems and processes worldwide. As more organizations look to digital tech to transform their operations, the global Intelligent Transport System (ITS) community is seizing the moment by capitalizing on ongoing projects and by bringing new ideas and innovations forward. At the ITS World Congress in Hamburg this October, developments and solutions will be brought to life.
“This will be one of Europe’s largest face-to-face events for quite some time,” says Lisa Boch-Andersen, Director of Communications and Events at ERTICO-ITS Europe, a public-private partnership based in Brussels and organizer of the event. “Contributions from the ITS community will be showcased in 180 technical sessions, alongside high-level plenaries and executive presentations, three regional forums, 45 demonstrations, and 20 technical visits. And for the first time this year, we will have two global forums. As usual, an innovative start-up program focused on matchmaking will take place The most important element are the people – that’s what ITS is all about. We hope to see you there: the World Congress is for the ITS community by the ITS community.”
