Are you a smart city and want to showcase your mobility activities through Technical Tours and Demonstrations to a wider public in Europe and beyond? Do you want to offer companies in your region the opportunity to reveal, present and demonstrate their product or project to expand their business opportunities? In the coming weeks, ERTICO will be launching the call for tender to host the next two European Congresses and the next World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems & Services (ITS) for the years 2025-2026 (European Congress) and 2027 (World Congress in EMEA region). We can’t wait for you to apply!

The ITS Congresses are the perfect platform to allow your city and the broader eco-system to play a role in the ongoing development of smart mobility.

‘For over 30 years, ERTICO-ITS Europe, ITS America and ITS Asia-Pacific have been hosting innovative ITS Congresses that present all that is new in the ITS sector. As a Host city, you join the extended ITS family of cities from across the world. Every Host city has felt the long-term positive economic impact on the business of their region and the benefits of being recognised as a key player in the smart mobility landscape,’ says Lisa Boch-Andersen,  ERTICO’s Director of Communication, Congresses and Events.

Every year, ERTICO organises an ITS regional Congress or World Congress in the EMEA region and they represent the yearly celebration of smart mobility: they underline the importance of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), particularly in cities and regions where they are hosted and are important channels to raise awareness of smart mobility solutions among policy makers, experts and the general public. They include live sessions where industry experts present the latest developments in ITS, a showcase of cutting-edge technologies through demostrations and a vibrant exhibition. The Congresses offer stakeholders and patrons the ultimate platform to meet with industry influencers, discuss ideas and initiatives, make new contacts and promote their businesses to 1,000s of key players in the industry.

The application to host the prestigious ITS Congress is a two-stage selection process that firstly includes the evaluation of an Initial Call for Interest including a Minimum Requirement document. This is then followed by a second stage namely a full tender process. Please contact Delphine Soubies as soon as possible if you wish to participate in the Call for Interest and receive the Minimum Requirements document.
