Astronaut starts ITT Hub 2021 countdown
Astronaut Major Tim Peake CMG appears in a video to start the countdown to ITT Hub 2021.
The video was launched on the day that ITT Hub 2020, a new event for the road transport sector, would have been opening its doors. Peake was joined by a number of the event’s key stakeholders in making the recording. With the postponement of ITT Hub 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, ITT Hub 2021 is set to take place on 12 to 13 May next year.
As well as a contribution from Tim Peake, who will be a key note speaker at the FTA’s Future Logistics Conference which will run in parallel with the exhibition at Farnborough International at ITT Hub 2021, the video also includes contributions from David Wells CEO FTA, Founder and MD of Electric Vehicles Outlook, Roger Atkins and Binswood Media Chairman, Leon Daniels OBE.
Taking place at the Farnborough International Conference & Exhibition Centre, ITT Hub will showcase what the exhibitor describes as the largest display of buses, coaches, minibuses, vans and trucks anywhere in the UK next year. With 6,000-plus visitors expected, an integral part of ITT Hub 2021 will be the free to attend FTA Future Logistics Conference with 45 sessions and over 120 speakers is co-located.

CEO of Binswood Media, Mark Griffin, said: “Naturally everyone’s attention is focussed upon the immediate issues that we are all facing in relation to the current situation, but we thought creating and sharing a video which looks forward to brighter times ahead would be a morale boost for everyone. We will all face a very different business world in the future and our team is ready to play its part when the economy restarts and our industry finds its feet again.
“The vast majority of exhibitors who were due to attend this week have confirmed that they plan to be at ITT Hub 2021 and indeed we have continued to receive high levels of interest and taken a number of new bookings over the last eight weeks I think that underlines the strength of our proposition, which looks to deliver an exciting new event in a new format, at a world class venue. “It is heartening that some companies in the supply chain already have an eye on next year, as they look at ways of engaging with clients and restore business relationships. I strongly believe that exhibitions and live events are the most powerful way to generate business. As business leaders, we must do whatever we can responsibly to get our economy re-energised for the journey to Net-Zero.”
