‘Momentum growing’ for ITT Hub
Organisers of the Innovation and Technology in Transport – ITT Hub, report exhibitor numbers to the event continue to rise.
The exhibition supports the shift to net-zero for passenger and commercial fleets. The organisers say it is one of the UK’s first major business events to take place in more than a year, and the first for the road transport sector.
Running from 30 June to 1 July at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, 130 exhibitors are currently confirmed to attend.
The timing of ITT Hub is in line with the anticipated publication of the Government’s Decarbonisation of Transport plan. Recognising the challenges facing the transport sector as it moves towards achieving net-zero carbon emissions, ITT Hub brings together the complete supply chain – manufacturers, operators, infrastructure solutions, energy providers, technology suppliers and policy makers – to explore how this shift will happen.
“We’re seeing momentum growing as confidence levels rise” – Mark Griffin, CEO of Binswood Media
Mark Griffin, CEO of Binswood Media, said: “We’re seeing momentum growing as confidence levels rise. Those I have spoken to express a very clear appetite for getting back to meeting face to face, having conversations in person – not through a screen; and witnessing some very exciting innovation.
“ITT Hub comes at a crucial time for industry with reality of shifting to net-zero becoming a reality. Now is the time for the road transport sector to seize the opportunity to re-engage through collaboration and support the Government’s policies of ‘build back better’ and ‘build back greener’. We are thrilled at the prospect of opening the doors this summer to a brand-new event for our sector.”
Demonstrations of coaches, buses and other commercial vehicles at the event will take place over a three-mile private road network. ITT Hub 2021 will also host the Future Logistics Conference organised by Logistics UK, featuring high-profile industry speakers and thought leaders. British astronaut Major Tim Peake CMG will be making the keynote address on the opening day of the show.
