For only the second time, a major ITS Congress has been held in the UK, and the country’s trade organisation say it was a great success for its members.
Ten years after it played an instrumental part in delivering the World Congress in London, ITS (UK) says it had a very popular stand in Glasgow where it was supported by members Nicander, Bartco/MVIS, IDT and the IET.
It says the effort it put into promoting the event to a UK audience paid off with the largest ever UK delegation to the European Congress attending.
Jennie Martin of ITS (UK) said, “We are very pleased that the message was taken up. UK speakers, demonstrators and exhibitors joined together to showcase UK ITS expertise to the international audience, and the many attendees proved the commitment of the UK ITS sector.”
ITS (UK) also contributed to twelve sessions in the Congress programme as organisers, speakers, moderators and authors and also organised a special networking event for young professionals at the Congress, with the assistance of Mouchel and IBI.
“Excellent expo with quality clients and a well organised friendly stand – well done to ITS (UK)” was the reaction from Pat Musgrave of Bartco/MVIS.
Trevor Platt of Nicander said that “The ITS (UK) stand once again gave us high profile presence at an international conference and exhibition at an affordable cost for an SME.”
Dr Anna Bonne of the IET commented that “The 11th ITS European Congress and Exhibition was one of the most anticipated events of the year for us. The IET was thrilled to be part of the ITS (UK) stand at the ITS Congress in Glasgow. We were in a prime location which meant that our members could find us easily and we could promote our new project on ITS in Local Authorities to a huge number of experts. The IET would like to thank the Congress organisers and all those took an interest in our work.”
