Why you should visit IT-TRANS!
Here you can rely on the industry partners’ specific knowledge to help solve your problems. It will be easy to visit them at their exhibition booths and to discuss the details. They spend all their professional time on your particular problem area. They are therefore able to channel know-how from other experiences into your potential solution. The exhibition is the ideal platform to do business face to face. Usually, many deals are finalized at IT-TRANS and plenty more are started here! And even if you do not have a pressing question, go and have a brief chat to hear about latest technologies, knowledge or ideas. It may spark a brainwave you have been waiting for!
If you look for precise experience and knowledge sharing without an extensive networking, please attend the Market Update sessions. This is where the industry will give its product presentations. Simply sit back and absorb the information. There will be many such presentations in no particular order or grouping.
Ask questions if you like!
We understand that you have to first deal with the „everyday problems“ of your specific local situation. At the same time, there are big global developments and challenges which pose uncertainties but also opportunities for dealing with exactly those daily issues. Perhaps you soon need to replace 200 old ticket vending machines or change the outdated variable message signs: all very concrete and pressing (operational) decisions. But maybe your mid-, and long-term (strategic) decisions would be different had you been informed about emerging technologies, future requirements, costs, etc. Perhaps your vending machines can have cameras built in, detect explosives, listen to violence, provide SOS services; can the new LED screens´ energy consumption be satisfied with a simple vandalism proof solar panel, and how can it be installed without the need for a heavy concrete foundation?
There are problems that you simply cannot solve by yourself. These need to be addressed – with your help – on a regional, national or European level, or even on an global level.
Taking into account that technology itself is almost never the problem – but rather the underlying organization – the global topics require a lot of networking. The of IT-TRANS is the platform for you to learn about the latest thinking on global issues like: (electronic) ticketing, (sharing of) travel data, interoperability, privacy, business models, standardization, mobile phones/NFC, marketing, sustainability, security, etc.
