18 - 20 February 2014 IT-TRANS in Karlsruhe Germany
We are happy to welcome you at stand F9 in hall 1! We look forward to seeing you!
IT-TRANS has established itself as a leading global exhibition for the industry. The International Association of Public Transport (UITP), Brussels, and Karlsruher Messe- und Kongress-GmbH (KMK), the two organisers of IT-TRANS – International conference and exhibition on IT solutions for public transport, have some impressive figures to report from the 2012 event. 3,132 participants, including 528 conference delegates from some 50 countries, were on hand in Karlsruhe from 15 to 17 February 2012.
IT-TRANS is a meeting place for decision-makers, managing directors, buyers and IT managers from public sector transport operators. “90 percent of them are involved in their companies’ investment decisions,” explains Britta Wirtz. “This means that Karlsruher Messe- und Kongress-GmbH has succeeded in creating another top international event that showcases the strengths of the Karlsruhe technology region for an international audience.” IT-TRANS has developed into a leading global information and communication platform for IT solutions in public transport. “Within only four years, IT-TRANS has become an absolute must for all decision-makers in the public transport industry,” states Alain Flausch, General Secretary of the UITP. “IT-TRANS is helping us to achieve our goal of doubling the market share of public transport by making it a part of our daily lives.”
The significance of IT-TRANS for the industry was also underscored by the high-calibre lecture programme which UITP organised for this international conference. The focus was on IT solutions for public transport, including e-ticketing, electronic passenger information systems, interoperable fare management and safety. One topic given particular attention by this conference was how public transport could be made into an attractive option for younger people, an age group in which the trend towards a “mobility mix” is particularly evident. The public transport of the future will be marked by the integration of different modes of transport, such as e-bikes, car sharing, trams, trains and individual transport.
