IT-TRANS has developed into an important meeting point for providers and interested parties in the field of public transport in recent years. I was able to follow this positive development from the very first event.

Despite the wide range of technical options, personal contact is very important to us. We are therefore very happy that IT-TRANS is one of the first events in the D-A-CH market where we can meet our partners as well as new prospective customers after a long time. ”
