International Conference and Exhibition | IT-TRANS

Press release / 17 March 2020


Organisers announce 1 to 3 December 2020 as new date after previous postponement due to coronavirus outbreak

UITP and Messe Karlsruhe are pleased to announce that the 2020 edition of IT-TRANS will be held from 1 to 3 December in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Initially postponed from 3 to 5 March due to developments concerning the coronavirus, the new date will see the largest event of its kind dedicated to digitalisation in public transport take place at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre.

UITP and Messe Karlsruhe are now moving forward towards the new date and are ready to welcome the world of urban mobility to Karlsruhe in December.

The Taxi & Ride-hailing Conference and Exhibition, also postponed in February, will remain as a parallel event to IT-TRANS and is confirmed for December.

“We’re delighted to have set the new date for the 2020 edition of IT-TRANS, where we look forward to welcoming our exhibitors, conference delegates and exhibition visitors to Karlsruhe. The initial decision to postpone was the correct one and we’d like to thank everyone involved for their hard work and diligence in finalising the details for the December date. We thank you for your patience and understanding.” said Mohamed Mezghani, Secretary General of UITP and Britta Wirtz, Managing Director of Messe Karlsruhe.
