This year’s World Congress takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark from September 17-21. The ITS Congresses represent the ultimate showcase of mobility services deployment. Every year, ERTICO organizes the ITS regional Congress or World Congress in Europe. These Congresses are the yearly celebration of smart mobility: they underline the importance of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), particularly in cities and regions where they are hosted and are important channels to raise awareness of smart mobility solutions among policy makers, experts and the general public.
The 2018 ITS World Congress will attract more than 10,000 participants from more than 100 countries, and will feature more than 150 sessions, 400 exhibitors, many demonstrations and technical tours, as well as a series of associated events, social occasions and networking opportunities.
The over-arching theme of this year’s ITS World Congress is Quality of Life and panelists will be asked “Quality of Life: How is innovation making mobility better?” Following this first day event, there will be onsite demonstrations of a range of the latest innovations including Keolis: First Autonomous Cab on the market, NordicWay 2: Car traffic management provided by “the sky”; Aurrigo: Self-driving pod shuttle service; MinRejseplan : A Huge Step Towards a Mobility as a Service-App / MaaS App and more.
The official Opening Ceremony of the ITS Congress will then take place in the presence of the HRH the Crown Prince of Denmark with dignitaries such as the Mayor of Copenhagen, Commissioner for Mobility and Transport, President of the FIA and CEO of ERTICO.
