UITP and Messe Karlsruhe recently announced that the 2020 edition of IT-TRANS will not take place as a live event.
Due to the pandemic situation and the fact that the Karlsruhe region has also recently been declared a risk area, the organizers of IT-TRANS, the International Association for Public Transport (UITP) and Messe Karlsruhe, have decided not to host IT-TRANS as a live event from 1 to 3 December 2020.
“We have been following the developments very closely in recent weeks and have been in constant communication with the relevant authorities. Their latest assessment made it clear to us that a cancellation of the on-site event is unfortunately inevitable. Containing the pandemic has top priority. Our decision takes into account the overall protection of the population and everyone involved in IT-TRANS. We acknowledge this with the transformation of IT-TRANS into a purely digital exhibition and conference.”
– Mohamed Mezghani, Secretary General of UITP, and Britta Wirtz, Managing Director of Messe Karlsruhe
