Farnborough to host Innovation & Technology in Transport Hub (ITT Hub) starting in 2020
A new exhibition aimed at better serving the transport sector has been unveiled.
Innovation & Technology in Transport Hub (ITT Hub) will be an annual exhibition that will take place at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre in Hampshire, home of the world-renowned Airshow. Happening over two days each May, the first edition of the event – ITT Hub 2020 – will take place 13 and 14 May 2020. Organised by Binswood Media, the show is aimed at better serving the rapidly changing wider transport, related technology and mobility sectors.
Leon Daniels, Chairman of Binswood Media, said: “ITT Hub 2020 will be a different kind of event for a dynamic and rapidly changing sector. Innovation and technology are both central themes in transport and they will increasingly shape future service provision at an accelerating rate. Collectively, everyone involved in the sector needs an effective annual event to understand and keep pace with the latest innovations and technologies that are now the new reality in transport.
“As we use transport in an inter-connected and multi-modal way and there is an increasing convergence in the technologies required to provide such a service, ITT Hub will actively encourage exhibitors and visitors from right across the transport spectrum, rather than be defined by vehicle type. So, you can expect to see on display material handling equipment alongside buses, commercial vehicles alongside emergency service units, vans alongside coaches, drones alongside taxis, bikes alongside construction machinery, as well as battery suppliers alongside diesel driveline specialists.”
Andy Eastlake, MD of the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership and one of six guest speakers at the launch, confirmed LowCVP as an Event Partner. Other speakers at the launch included Ian Luckett, Director of Luckett’s Travel; as well as representatives from the wider transport and energies industries.
Leon Daniels also confirmed that a dedicated content channel – ITT Hub Net – will be created to deliver relevant and timely information to key stakeholders across a number of key transport modes.
