Dealing with the Coronavirus
Conference and Exhibiton exclusively digital
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. We are therefore delighted that IT-TRANS will reassume its role as a stage for innovation at least in a digital form.
The rapidly increasing number of corona infections, the expansion of risk areas worldwide and the fact that also the Karlsruhe region has recently been declared a risk area, have led the organisers of IT-TRANS, International Association of Public Transport (UITP) and Messe Karlsruhe, to refrain from holding IT-TRANS from 1 to 3 December 2020 as an on-site live event. The organisers on their shared decision: "We have been following the developments very closely in recent weeks and have been in constant communication with the relevant authorities. Their latest assessment made it clear to us that a cancellation of the on-site event is unfortunately inevitable”, state Mohamed Mezghani, General Secretary of UITP, and Britta Wirtz, Managing Director of Messe Karlsruhe.
We will inform you here and in our press release about the changes in the exhibition and conference programme, the digital possibilities as well as the procedure regarding already booked tickets.
