Innovation &Technology in Transport – ITT Hub – is a ground-breaking new event which supports the government’s decarbonisation of transport plan. The show will be the largest gathering of commercial vehicles in the UK for several years, with representation from across the transport sector.
The show takes place ahead of COP26 this November, and the government has reinforced its commitment to decarbonisation and net zero, affecting everyone in transport.
ITT Hub will be a showcase for the latest innovations and technologies coming from the sector, and will demonstrate how organisations and policy makers alike are committed to ensuring a sustainable future for transport, tackling the rapidly-changing environmental and data-driven landscape head on.
A diverse range of over 100 vehicles from leading manufacturers–including green gas and hydrogen fuelled – will be on display(both indoors and outdoors), and in a unique development for a UK show, there will be a three mile Ride & Drive facility – enabling visitors to experience the vehicles in action.
Leading brands including DAF Trucks, Iveco, Mercedes, Renault Trucks, BYD, Caetano, Pelican Yutong, Dawson Bus and Coach, Fiat, and Wrightbus, together with new start-ups Volta Trucks and Arrival, will be showcasing their latest vehicles, with more scheduled to be announced.
In addition to the immersive Ride & Drive experience, visitors can expect to see:
-The largest display of new commercial vehicles, trucks, vans, minibuses, coaches, buses and the latest transport technologies
-Hybrid, electric, gas, hydrogen and alternative powered vehicles
-Astronaut Major Tim Peake CMG as guest speaker at the conference
-A purpose built, state of the art venue at the Home of Pioneering Spirit
The event also features Future Logistics, a two-day high-level conference, devised by and in association with trade body Logistics UK.
Post-pandemic, the UK economy will take a huge amount of rebuilding and transport is set to place a crucial part in the recovery, as well as hitting the net-zero target by 2030. ITT Hub has this at the heart of its agenda, an event that the industry deserves and needs more than ever.
Taking place from 30th June – 1st July at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, ITT Hub provides industry with one of the first opportunities to reconnect in person.
The venue, located just outside London, has a vast amount of outdoor space, which lends itself perfectly to creating a Covid secure environment. 70 per cent of the ITT Hub exhibition takes place outdoors, with robust measures in place to ensure guests feel safe and confident at the show.
