2019 ITS (UK) AWARDS – Nominations now OPEN
Deadline Friday 6th September 2019
The ITS (UK) Awards is an annual celebration of excellence and recognition for outstanding contributions within the Intelligent Transport Systems industry in the UK.
The first ITS United Kingdom Awards were made in connection with the 2006 ITS World Congress in London and every year since then, this awards program has been integral in acknowledging and valuing the importance of professional ITS expertise whilst raising awareness across all levels of government bodies and communities about the benefits and value of ITS technologies to our cities, economy, environment, transportation and everyday lives.
We had a memorable 2018 Awards ceremony at the Bristol Harbour Hotel in November last year. This year the ITS (UK) Awards will take place at the RICOH Arena in Coventry on Wednesday 16th October. The Awards ceremony itself will take place alongside the Presidents Dinner and therefore it is an evening not to be missed!
We would appreciate and encourage you to take part in the nomination process and the instructions for doing so are below.
