We are already looking forward to seeing you personally at IT-TRANS in Karlsruhe from 10 to 12 May 2022. The conference and exhibition will again be held as an in-person event at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre. Preparations have already started.

Since its first edition in 2008, IT-TRANS has offered a platform for decision-makers to foster the digitalisation of public transport and to present and learn about recent innovations.

What makes IT-TRANS so special is the event’s focus on acknowledged experts in the urban transport sector. Knowledge meets competence; experts meet decision-makers.

We are completely satisfied with the Exhibition and will be back next time. It is a very focused event that gives us the opportunity to meet a lot of key suppliers and our customers. Other big advantages are the compact exhibition layout of IT-TRANS and of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre itself making it simple and quick to get around.
