While Euro Bus Expo has been postponed, ITT Hub plans to proceed with its inaugural event this summer. Innovation and Technology in Transport – ITT Hub, which was itself postponed previously, aims to support the shift to net zero for passenger and commercial fleets, and will also be 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, ITT Hub represents a return to live events, with more than 130 exhibitors.
Mark Griffin, CEO, Binswood Media, says: “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 the objective 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.”
Vehicle demonstrations of vans, buses, trucks, trailers and coaches 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.
