The Big ITS Conversation
16 January, 2024 @ 14:00 - 16:30
The Big ITS Conversation is back! Following the success of the first event in April, the Big ITS Conversation returns to put local authorities and public sector organisations in touch with ITS providers.
The Big ITS Conversation is a major virtual networking event using an online technology platform, where local authority and regional transport body representatives will be able to speak to a selection of intelligent transport providers over Zoom. The public sector representatives host virtual tables where ITS companies can come and meet them for short, informal meetings.
Before the event, the public sector representatives provide short challenge statements, listing in broad terms the challenges they are facing that intelligent transport could help resolve. The statements help make the networking as valuable as possible, ensuring the event is as effective as possible.
We have public sector table hosts confirmed from:
- East West Rail
- Transport for London
- Transport for the West Midlands
- Dorset Council
- Transport for Greater Manchester
- Reading Borough Council
- Coventry City Council
- Glasgow City Council
- Department for Infrastructure (NI)
- With more to be confirmed soon!
