The organisers of the huge Intertraffic Amsterdam conference and exhibition have announced that they are postponing this year’s event – due for April – because of fears around Cornonavirus.
ITS (UK) was due to be there in force and be involved in several meetings and discussions.
You can read the full statement here:
Intertraffic Amsterdam is moving from 21-24 April 2020 to 23 – 26 March 2021. We, as organiser, are complying with the explicit wishes of both exhibitors and visitors to reschedule the event. Last week’s significant increase in the global spread of COVID-19 has resulted in this decision.
Joyce de Winter, Exhibition manager of Intertraffic at RAI Amsterdam comments: “Catching up with your peers, networking and meeting people from all over the world is core to the success of Intertraffic. Under the current circumstances Intertraffic Amsterdam cannot fulfill its purpose next month without substantial compromises and in view of an anticipated decrease in exhibitor and visitor numbers”.
Intertraffic, as the key industry event in the traffic and mobility sector, caters for a global community. 90% of the exhibitors are international and in 2018 visitors originated from 140 countries. The international character of the event is significantly impacted by the measures taken in other countries. The top three exhibiting countries outside The Netherlands are China, Italy and Germany. In these and other countries, measures have been put in place which influence exhibitor’s and visitor’s ability to attend.
Joyce de Winter underlines: ”We have an obligation to our community to meet the quality and expectations associated with our brand. Hence the decision to reschedule this year’s edition, to serve you and stage Intertraffic to its full potential in 2021“.
Switch to the uneven years
With the change of dates to 2021, the biennial frequency of Intertraffic Amsterdam will as of now move to the uneven years. The upcoming editions will hence be in 2021, 2023 etc.
