  • Innovative live demonstrations and outdoor technical visits covering an area of000 sqm are dedicated to showcasing unique experiences of tomorrow’s mobility solutions and transport technologies.
  • A lively exhibition filled with cutting-edge solutions focusing on contributing to a more sustainable, smarter and cleaner mobility ecosystem.

The sheer speed and scope of innovative and smart mobility solutions, propelled by technological developments as well as social and environmental needs, are unprecedented. Intelligent transport systems and services have started to become more efficient, demand-responsive and safe, but more is to come. The innovative potential of ITS is too vast to foretell the mobile future. We only know that ITS: The Game Changer will keep changing the game – and the future.
