The UITP Global Public Transport Summit is the biggest exhibit in the world when it comes to sustainable transport. This year’s event will take place in beautiful Barcelona with the fitting theme “Bright Light of the City”. It’s scheduled for 4-7 June 2023 at the Gran Via, one of Europe’s most modern trade fair venues. Last year’s event had 15000 visitors and more than 375 exhibitors, so you can expect plenty of networking opportunities as well as innovative displays.
The Global Public Transport Summit is organized by the UITP, or the International Association of Public Transport. A unique organization dedicated to promoting and improving public transport systems worldwide. Founded in 1885, the UITP has over 1500 member companies and organizations from over 100 countries, making it the largest network of public transport stakeholders in the world.
One of the key focuses of the UITP is sustainable and innovative solutions for public transport. This includes promoting the use of clean and renewable energy sources, such as electric buses, and supporting the development of intelligent transport systems that can improve efficiency and reduce congestion. In addition to this, they also advocate for the importance of public transport in creating inclusive cities. Well-functioning public transport systems can help reduce social and economic inequality by providing affordable and accessible transportation. What the UITP stands for sets the tone for the Global Public Transport Summit, an event for a sustainable and inclusive future.
