IT TRANS 2022
From 10 to 12 of May 2022, Switchio will be in the southwestern German city of Karlsruhe, which every two years plays host to IT-TRANS, the world’s leading conference and exhibition devoted to intelligent urban transport systems. Following cancellation of the live format in 2020, organizers are once again preparing to open the doors at the Messe Karlsruhe trade fair centre to more than 7,000 visitors from all over the world eager to learn about the latest developments in the digitalization of public transport.
Since 2008, the IT-TRANS International Conference and Exhibition has been the premier platform for important decision-makers and experts in public transport to exchange ideas, experiences, and inspiration. The event also represents one of the most important opportunities in the industry to establish new contacts and strengthen existing networks.
A Window to the Future of Urban Mobility
With more than 270 exhibitors from 35 countries, IT-TRANS 2022 will offer a broad cross-section of the dynamic multinationals, small and medium enterprises, and startups driving the latest trends in public transport. Visitors to Messe Karlsruhe will see new technologies and directions in a number of key areas, including cyber security, on-demand and flexible transport, and autonomous mobility.
The lineup for this year’s conference boasts some of the brightest minds in the industry. Over 180 experts will speak on subjects ranging from artificial intelligence, autonomous mobility, and mobile ticketing to data governance, integrated network management, and smart cities. Scheduled to give the keynote speech is leading futurist, author, and CEO of The Futures Agency Gerd Leonhard, who in 2015 was ranked by WIRED magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in Europe.
Contactless Ticketing at the Forefront of the Digitalization Movement
One of the hottest topics in recent years is contactless ticketing. The global transition to digital cEMV payments in public transport is picking up momentum thanks in large part to innovative solutions like the one developed by Switchio. Delivered as a white-label software as a service (SaaS), the comprehensive payment gateway gives transport operators a vast array of sophisticated tools with which to streamline their fare and ticketing policies in a single digital platform. Following the interruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the team at Switchio looks forward presenting its unique product in person to the many industry colleagues and experts at IT-TRANS 2022.
Visit Switchio from 10 to 12 May, 2022, in Hall No. 1, Stand I35.
