ITS World Congress Open Day on 23 January
On 23 January, the City of Copenhagen, ITS Denmark and ERTICO – ITS Europe hosted an Open Day event at the Bella Center for current and potential exhibitors and commercial partners.
The purpose of the Open Day was to explain the benefits of either exhibiting or entering a commercial partnership with the ITS World Congress. The attending partners were also given a tour in the Bella Center and thus, a chance to see the facilities of the congress and get a feeling of how the exhibition area will look like in September. In addition, the participants were given an insight into the main theme of the congress, ITS – Quality of Life, and how the congress will focus on innovative ITS solutions for easier and healthier mobility in people’s everyday life.
The benefits of either exhibiting or entering a commercial partnership with the Congress are huge and reflect a commitment to bringing together industry professionals with unique ITS expertise and technology in order to develop new business solutions. Through the exhibition and partnership packages available – Platinum, Diamond, Gold, and Silver – commercial partners will have a world platform to showcase their ideas and solutions and, in turn, contribute to the success of the congress.
