ITT Hub brings government agencies together to facilitate representation and access

The organisers of ITT Hub 2020, the ground-breaking new event for innovation and technology in road based-transport, have announced that it will host a special area in the exhibition for the many Government and non-Governmental organisations that play a key role in the provision, regulation and development of current and future services across the whole sector.

The ‘Government Hub’ at ITT Hub 2020 will facilitate representation for various agencies in a dedicated area, located right at the heart of the main exhibition hall, with a shared facility for meetings and networking an integral part of the initiative.

ITT Hub 2020 takes place at Farnborough International Conference & Exhibition Centre on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 May 2020.

Explaining the rationale behind the Government Pavilion, CEO of organiser Binswood Media, Mark Griffin says: “When we launched ITT Hub, we recognised the need for the many and varied agencies of government to work in close collaboration with industry to rise to the challenge of meeting the net zero greenhouse gas emissions target by 2050.

“Last week’s report published by The Electric Vehicle (EV) Energy Taskforce contained 21 key proposals for actions to be taken by government and industry to enable an effective and efficient electric mobility transition.

“A key proposal within that report is co-ordinating energy and transport planning to ensure we have the right infrastructure in the right place.

"The strong message from Government is that data will also play a significant part in achieving net zero. At ITT Hub 2020 we aim to bring key stakeholders from many areas within the debate together which include operators, energy providers, infrastructure, manufacturers and planners.”

 

Significant key developments

The organisers of ITT Hub 2020 believe that the next few months will see a number of significant key developments which the road transport industry will be watching very closely and be prepared to respond to.

Mark Griffin adds: “Coming down the track we have The Budget scheduled for 11th March, any update and outcomes from OLEV’s Project Rapid, the next Spending Round which sets out the government’s spending plans for 2020-21, and of course the announcement that COP26 in November this year will be hosted in Glasgow.

“Minister for the Future of Transport, George Freeman, emphasised last week that digitalisation is at the heart of decarbonisation in transport.

"Indeed, the strong message was that the innovators of tomorrow will need to put the power into the hands of local communities. He also implied that one of the missing parties in the debate are local authorities and planners, who should be encouraged to get involved and work together with industry.

“The work and recommendations from the National Infrastructure Commission has been widely reported hence the profile of infrastructure at ITT Hub 2020 is key too.

“The Government Hub will create an opportunity for these various agencies to be represented, engage with industry and come together to pick up on many of these critical subjects.

"We are delighted that several of those invited have already committed to taking part, with a presence in the both the exhibition and through our conference where they will benefit from the significant networking opportunities over the two days.”

 

Reshaping the landscape

With nearly 80 confirmed exhibitors and many more significant names to be announced in the coming weeks, ITT Hub 2020 continues to reshape the landscape for trade events in the road-based transport sector.

Centrica, Lloyds Banking Group, Lex Autolease and National Grid are the Commercial Partners of the event, with The Freight Transport Association as Strategic Partners.

As well as indoor and outdoor exhibition space with the opportunity to ‘ride and drive’ a selection of the latest vans, minibuses, trucks, buses and coaches, powered by a variety of fuels including gas, hydrogen and full electric, the free-to-attend event will feature a major two day conference on site at impressive Farnborough International facility.

 

100 speakers at Conference

The FTA Future Logistics Conference, which will be kicked off by a keynote speech from British astronaut Major Tim Peak CMG, will feature 45 sessions and more than 100 speakers, all leaders in their respective fields, providing insight and invaluable knowledge for transport industry professions.
