Datum: 1 december 2020 t/m 3 december 2020

Locatie: Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre

The conference and exhibition will welcome international thought leaders and recognised experts in IT and mobility

The constant advance of digitalisation has revolutionised our everyday lives, redefining the way we live and move around. IT-TRANS focuses on this development and showcases digital solutions for connected urban mobility. Now in its seventh year, the conference and exhibition will once again welcome international thought leaders and recognised experts in IT and mobility to the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre from 1 to 3 December 2020.

The coronavirus pandemic is posing new challenges to many parts of the economy, with public transport particularly affected. This has highlighted the importance of digitalisation in the sector. As a result, the IT-TRANS conference will look to answer specific questions about digital innovations for improving public transport during the pandemic. Other major topics will include shared and on-demand mobility, autonomous driving, artificial intelligence and mobile ticketing systems. A total of 150 speakers will share their expertise in 30 conference sessions. Organisers are also planning to integrate hybrid elements that will allow international participants who cannot attend in person to get involved.

E-Market Updates – Free online seminars for international knowledge transfer

The public transport sector is fighting to recover from the effects of Covid-19 on services and passenger numbers. Transport operators want to ensure safe journeys while also helping passenger numbers to recover. The organisers of IT-TRANS, UITP and Messe Karlsruhe, want to bring the industry together to share ideas and experiences in these difficult times. To do this, a series of regular virtual seminars has been set up, in which leading players from the IT and mobility sectors present their latest developments and share their experiences. The topics of the next E-Market Updates are:

  • Mobility-as-a-service: Building a holistic mobility experience (8 September)
  • Digitalisation of Taxi transport to manage the impact of COVID-19 (15 September)
  • Building integrated planning & scheduling tools for authorities and operators (6 October)
  • Autonomous mobility - Shifting towards better mobility (10 November)
