The ITS Congresses represent the ultimate showcase of mobility services deployment. Every year, ERTICO organises an ITS regional Congress or World Congress in Europe.
Congresses are the yearly celebration of smart mobility: they underline the importance of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), particularly in cities and regions where they are hosted and are important channels to raise awareness of smart mobility solutions among policy makers, experts and the general public. They include live sessions where industry experts present the latest developments in ITS, a showcase of cutting edge technology and an exhibition space. The Congresses offer stakeholders and patrons the ultimate platform to meet with industry influencers, discuss ideas and initiatives, make new contacts and promote their businesses by taking part in a range of activities.
ERTICO ensures that the themes of the ITS Congresses challenge, deepen and support current and future ERTICO activities. The Congresses represent an ideal channel through which ERTICO fosters cooperation with the international industry community in the Americas and in the Asia-Pacific regions.

In 2018 the City of Copenhagen hosts the 25th ITS World Congress from 17-21 September. The European Commission, ITS America and ITS Asia-Pacific are the strong partners of ERTICO in organising world’s largest event focusing on the digitalisation of transport and smart mobility.
With the theme “ITS – Quality of Life”, the 25th ITS World Congress will look at how the industry can contribute to a higher quality of life by improving liveability, making the surrounding environment greener and lowering congestion. Discussions will take place over five days, while exhibitors and demonstrators will showcase ground-breaking results on how their solutions have a positive impact on all people.
The Congress’ three pillars – the Programme, the Exhibition and the Demonstrations – will all have a common thread looking at new mobility services, connected and automated transport, smart freight and delivery of goods, green solutions, satellite technologies and next generation of transport networks.
