Pre-event at PTV | IT-TRANS

Pre-event at PTV 2020

The IT-TRANS pre-event aims to provide an informal platform for exhibition and conference participants to network and exchange. Hence, the programme starts in the evening and is kept short and sweet to give you enough time to talk to the participants in person.

In cooperation with the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) and Messe Karlsruhe, PTV Group hosts the pre-opening to the IT-TRANS on the eve of the first conference and exhibition day. We invite you to join us for an exclusive event on 2 March 2020, for a get-together with the international Public Transport community.

We are moving rapidly into a future where new technological solutions could change both how we think about private transport and how we travel. We surely will see more self-driving vehicles in our transport system in the near future. But planning future infrastructure needs is difficult. What impact will they have on the existing transportation system? How could self-driving systems affect travel patterns and car use? Will today’s car ownership be the same in the future? Will AVs increase our desire to travel more? How quickly will society adopt AVs?

Endre Angelvik, Vice President Mobility Services at Ruter As and Paul Speirs, Head of Global PreSales at PTV Group, will present the Oslo study about how shared mobility and AVs may change transport in cities on the eve of IT-TRANS 2020, 2 March 2020. If you are looking for an exchange with international experts from the transportation industry and if you are interested in the details of the study, you are very welcome to attend the event. Use the platform to exchange ideas on how you can ensure future mobility for your citizens and customers.
