The ITS (UK) Summit 2018 – where the technology meets the road

18/07/2018

A new event aimed at debating and discussing how ITS strategies and technology can help solve challenges on the road network will bring together all the relevant stakeholders involved with planning, managing and delivering change.

The ITS (UK) Summit 2018, taking place at Bristol Harbour Hotel on 27 November, will be organised by Transport Network, part of the Hemming Group, publishers of SMART Highways, Highways magazine and organisers of Traffex Road Expo Scotland, Traffex and Traffex Seeing is Believing, in association with ITS (UK).

The aim of this CPD accredited one-day thought leadership style event, hosted by Bristol City Council, is to focus on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and its use in all areas of the highways and transport sector – particularly its role in helping solve some of the most challenging issues on the network today, but also helping create sustainable and long-term opportunities on the road network as well.

Topics covered will include: creating and making better use of road space; dealing with the congestion challenge; breaking down the barriers to delivery; funding; the future of policy and procurement, as well as implementing ITS strategies; mobility as a service; and the latest technology and innovation. There will also be a debate considering how we prepare our network for connected and autonomous vehicles.

The annual ITS (UK) President’s dinner and awards will take place the night before (26 November), also at the Bristol Harbour Hotel.

Jennie Martin (pictured), secretary general at ITS (UK) said: ‘This is not just another conference; this is a meeting of the finest minds in highways and transport as well as ITS, to discuss and examine the issues around implementing the great technology we have. We will have lively debate and knowledge sharing, and not an endless round of Powerpoint presentations. Our old conference fizzled out because it wasn’t offering anything different in a crowded market. I can promise this event will be like no other and really underlines our role as the voice of transport technology in the UK.’

Adrian Tatum, events producer and head of content at Transport Network said: ‘We are delighted to have this opportunity to bring together all the key stakeholders in the sector including ITS professionals-both from the public and private sector, ITS companies and similar organisations, as well as the wider highways sector, to debate and discuss the latest thinking and challenges on the network to highlight how use of ITS strategies and technology could help solve them. This summit will attempt to break down the barriers to ITS delivery to help drive change on the road network.’

The event website will be live very soon with further information and updated information will appear in SMART Highways and on its website www.smarthighways.net.
