ITS Australia has announced leading car manufacturer Honda as the latest premier exhibitor to come on board for the 2016 ITS World Congress in Melbourne.
Honda will join leading experts in mobility as up to 7,000 delegates from around the world come to the world’s most liveable city to discuss leading-edge global mobility solutions, connectivity and the future of transport across road, rail, sea and air.
Honda is set to unveil its latest automotive technology at the Congress and take advantage of the opportunity to align itself with some of the world’s most influential developers, manufacturers, authorities and transport visionaries at the event.
Also joining the stage at the Melbourne Exhibition and Conference Centre in October 2016 will be Forum8 – another Japanese company and leaders in transport simulation and modelling.
The Transport Accident Commission (TAC), the Victorian Government owned organisation, has also been announced as the major Government sponsor for the Congress. Providing support to people injured in transport accidents through treatment and services for recovery, the TAC promotes road safety in Victoria and works with its road safety partners to reduce the incidence and severity of road trauma.
ITS Australia CEO Susan Harris welcomes Honda, Forum8 and the TAC to the event and says Australia’s technological landscape is ready for what these companies will introduce to the Australia market.
” ITS Australia could not be more thrilled that just over seven months left until the Congress, we have secured some of the world’s leading transport and mobility partners to join us, bringing their wealth of knowledge and advanced technologies to the Australian stage.
“We believe Melbourne will be a milestone event for Australia and solidify our place as one of the world’s most advanced and adaptive intelligent transport system markets,” Ms Harris said.
The event takes place 10-14 October. Smart Highways editor Paul Hutton will be reporting daily from Melbourne and is the official podcast provider at the event.
