On the Road to Barcelona…

For the next Global Summit

Barcelona inspires. The official expression used by the local authority to express their vision for a brand-new story in the city’s future.

Famous for its stunning architecture, vibrant nightlife, world-class sport, sandy beaches and cultural heritage, the city is full of colour and life.

As Barcelona looks towards innovative transformation in the years to come, the world of public transport will be descending upon the city next year for the UITP Global Public Transport Summit (4-7 June 2023).

With all eyes on the Road to Barcelona, we’re excited to announce that the official registration has opened for the world’s largest event dedicated to urban mobility!

The world of public transport is defined by its strength of community – a community needed more than ever before as we work together to build a future fit for the ages.

Displaying the latest innovations, solutions and products, presented and showcased by the industry’s top players…the UITP Summit is an immersive four-day experience.

Combining a diverse programme of world-class Congress sessions and an outstanding Exhibition, the UITP Summit is the place to be.

The UITP Global Summit is the world’s gathering place for public transport professionals to share ideas and make meaningful connections. Under our theme ‘Bright Light of the City’, all of our delegates can seize the opportunity to help advance our sector in the fantastic location of Barcelona – a city that excels in urban mobility. I’m pleased to see the official registration open and I hope to see you join us next June!

Key facts and figures

Metro, bus, tram, train and even cable cars, the city has it all.

As an easily accessible international hub, there’s excellent integration between the Congress and Exhibition facilities. Barcelona is a well-connected city with outstanding public transport options, including all modes, alongside an integrated approach to boost modal shift and sustainability.

Under the theme “Bright Light of the City“, our three local partners for the 2023 Summit are Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC), TMB and Renfe.

We’re delighted to be working with these key players, who are committed to making the next edition an absolutely unforgettable event.

Preparation and success go hand-in-hand; and alongside our members we’re working hard to bring the sector a Summit to remember.
