ITS United Kingdom promotes UK ITS at the 2013 European ITS Congress in Dublin
The 2013 European ITS Congress was held this month in Dublin.
ITS (UK) organised a pavilion stand in the exhibition associated with the Congress, where four ITS (UK) Members showcased themselves, and where the 200 UK visitors could base themselves and catch up with colleagues. The event was attended by a total of 1700 people.
The ITS (UK) Members on the stand were: Mouchel, MIRA, IBI Group and INRIX. A steady stream of visitors attended the stand and found out more about the capabilities of these four, as well as collecting general UK ITS information.
ITS (UK) was also involved in promoting two sessions at the Congress: one themed on using ITS to support disabled travellers, and one on boosting the presence of women in the ITS profession.
ITS (UK) has very close ties with ITS Ireland, including sharing several member organisations, and had supported the Irish colleagues by taking an active part in the Host Country planning committee for the event.
