IT-TRANS 2020: The next milestone in your digital transformation

Posted: 6 January 2020 |

IT-TRANS, the world’s leading conference and exhibition covering the digital and technological developments in urban mobility is set for 2020. Brought to you by UITP and Messe Karlsruhe, the seventh edition (Karlsruhe, 3-5 March 2020) follows the massive success of the 2018 edition, where record numbers were achieved.

Digitalisation has completely changed the way we think and move – and public transport must harness its potential to better serve the needs of customers.

Beginning in 2008, the key players from the industry descend on Germany’s Silicon Valley to present their developments and discuss the digital concepts and solutions that are redefining the way passengers travel.

From micromobility and Big Data, to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT), IT-TRANS demonstrates where digital solutions can be implanted in public transport.

What’s new for the 2020 edition?

More than 270 exhibitors from 35 countries will showcase their software solutions and mobility services across 28,000m2 of exhibition space. Exhibitors already confirmed include Deutsche Bahn AG, moovel, Siemens and Via. Over 7,000 visitors will witness the key sector players present the future of our digital movement.

The conference will host 30 sessions with over 150 speakers and more than 700 conference delegates.

Leading figures from the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, Transdev and TMB Barcelona have already been announced, with more to follow.

Key topics for discussion include Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), autonomous mobility, ticketing and payments and data ownership and governance.

As technology is constantly accelerating, UITP and Messe Karlsruhe have joined forces once more to keep you at the forefront of innovation and digitalisation. The public transport sector must always embrace new technologies to provide the most efficient services possible, with the passenger always in mind. The 2020 edition of IT-TRANS is shaping up to be our biggest yet and by joining us in Karlsruhe next March you will see first -hand what the future of mobility looks like.
