The UITP World Congress & Exhibition, an event with almost 130 years of history behind it, is changing.
The event has evolved and expanded over the years, reflecting the enormous innovation in the sector and the increasing attention and importance given to sustainable transport.
These changes have seen the biggest event in public transport grow in stature. It has become quite simply the not-to-miss occasion for transport ministers, mayors, industry CEOs and urban visionaries to debate and explore the strategic vision and business activities of the sector.
UITP felt it was time that the event’s name reflected all these changes. So, as of the 62nd edition in Montréal in 2017, it shall be known as the ‘Global Public Transport Summit’.
