The ITT Hub (Innovation and Technology in Transport) is a new two-day exhibition and conference, to be held for the first time next year.
Set to take place at Farnborough International Conference & Exhibition Centre from 13-14 May 2020, the event will provide a platform for all those involved in transport and logistics to experience the latest technologies and debate the big issues which will affect the industry in the 21stcentury and beyond.
Lending its support is the Freight Transport Association (FTA), who’s Chief Executive David Wells said: “ITT Hub will be a unique, cross sector annual event, combining opportunities for debate and discussion with extensive exhibition and vehicle demonstration space and as the leading business organisation representing all facets of logistics, FTA’s partnership with ITT Hub is a logical one. The ITT Hub is also for everyone involved in Logistics and Transport, those whose job it is to move people and freight, and the owners of the goods including retailers and manufacturers. FTA’s experience and expertise will ensure that the programme on offer is relevant for all transport professionals, whatever their job role or level of seniority.”
“Unlike other, more conventional conference and exhibition spaces, the new £30m facility at Farnborough will give hands-on interaction opportunities for visitors looking to trial the latest developments in logistics and transport technology. The event will also feature a comprehensive conference programme, which will combine strategic ideas with blue-sky thinkers to give visitors the forum to discuss the very latest developments in transport and logistics. ITT Hub will be the perfect opportunity for logistics professionals to learn about, debate and explore the technologies which will shape the sector for decades to come. “It’s about time the Industry had a truly cross sector flagship event, modern and forward looking, combining debate in conferences and workshops, with demonstration and discussion around the technologies shaping our future. FTA is delighted to be a key strategic partner for such an exciting opportunity,” he added.
ITT Hub is the brainchild of business organisation, Binswood Media, led by Chairman Leon Daniels OBE and Mark Griffin, CEO.
“Event organisers Binswood Media have an impressive pedigree. With Leon Daniels bringing his unique transport experience and enthusiasm for change, combined with Mark Griffin’s proven track record in delivering market-leading events in the transport sector, it really is a compelling proposition. Additionally, by working with an Advisory Board of industry experts, the FTA and Binswood Media will ensure that the event combines the very latest thinking with the cutting-edge developments from right across the transport sector,” explained David.
Commenting on the strategic event partnership announcement, Leon Daniels said; “None of us can tackle the challenges of road congestion, ultra-low emissions, data, technology and other critical issues alone. This announcement heralds the start of an exciting future for this new trade event today. I believe it will harness the huge experience of the FTA team in engagement with the sector to deliver high quality seminar and thought leadership content. ITT Hub is gaining real traction and momentum, and this highly significant strategic tie up is further positive news.
“The announcement comes at a time when over 50% of original floor space is now already taken. Companies already committed to exhibiting in May 2020 are Volvo Group, Dawson Group, Arrival, Williams Advanced Engineering, Totalkare, Mercedes-Benz and Wright Group, with others set to confirm plans in coming weeks.”
