MARK YOUR CALENDARS: UITP OFFERS NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO NETWORK AND EXPAND YOUR KNOWLEDGE IN 2020

As we welcome a fresh new year, ready to accept new challenges and confront new innovations in the sector, what better way to prepare for the year ahead than by marking your 2020 calendar with the exciting events held by UITP this year!

Highlights for 2020 include new editions of our biennial events like IT-TRANS, the MENA Transport Congress & Exhibition, and SITCE. This year, we also have the Taxi and Ride-hailing Conference and Exhibition—a must-attend for the new mobility sector—and finally, we will be celebrating our Annual Reception in June for a very special occasion!

The defining event in IT and digitalisation for the public transport sector is back in Karlsruhe, Germany (3-5 March 2020). The IT-TRANS International Conference and Exhibition has a full programme focusing on these key themes: digital transformation, artificial intelligence and internet of things (IoT), autonomous mobility, on-demand and shared mobility, Mobility as a Service (MaaS), ticketing and payment, data ownership and governance, and intelligent city traffic management. Ready to innovate and transform your company’s digital strategyRegister now!

Held in conjunction with IT-TRANS this year is our Taxi and Ride-hailing Conference and Exhibition (3-5 March 2020). This conference is your opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge and learn about smart solutions with leading taxi experts from around the world. Sharing the same exhibition floor as IT-TRANS, delegates are welcome to explore the latest innovations from the sector.

In Dubai, UAE, from 13-15 April 2020, our biennial MENA Transport Congress & Exhibition will be held under the theme ‘Building the future of mobility’. This world-class event aims to promote public transport throughout the region, provide opportunities for delegates to share their experiences and reinforce the voice and involvement of MENA on the development of public transport on a worldwide level. Register to attend!

Straying from our usual tradition of holding an Annual Reception in January with the start of the New Year, this year the reception will take place on 4 June 2020 in Brussels, Belgium. The UITP Annual Reception is the occasion to meet and toast to our achievements and future projects. This year, we have an extra reason to celebrate as our association becomes 135 years old—that’s 135 years of advancing public transport together! Please note that this event is open to UITP members only.  

For its fourth edition, the LTA-UITP Singapore International Transport Congress & Exhibition (SITCE) 2020 will bring international urban mobility stakeholders to convene under the theme ‘Heartbeat of Mobility’. This theme aims to bring our attention back to the core issues that pulsate through the heart of urban mobility: a people-centric approach that ensures an inclusive, safe and convenient commuter experience must lie at the heart of discussions.
