The Start-up area will not only provide space for an exhibition booth, but will serve as the innovation hub within the Congress, providing a platform for young entrepreneurs to promote their business ideas, participate in pitching sessions and attend panel discussions.

‘Start-ups, with their creativity and adaptability have the potential and knowledge to help us bring new solutions for tomorrow’s journey and are essential for the future of the European economy. We are looking forward with great interest to see what this vibrant start-up community with its new products, services and ideas will bring to the ITS Community in Hamburg,’ said Mr. Jacob Bangsgaard, ERTICO CEO.
