The biggest event in public transport can also be declared the most unique as it gathers an “overwhelming” number of high quality and high-level speakers.
Spread over three action-packed days, the UITP 2015 World Congress & Exhibition has succeeded in attracting a record number of 70 best-of-the-best CEOs and General Managers from around the world to speak in a total of 24 sessions on the challenges and opportunities facing the urban and public transport sector today.
Representing the sector across all continents, from cities to regions of all sizes, the global headline event brings together the cream of the crop of decision-makers and executives directly responsible for organising, operating, managing and supplying services for the transport of hundreds of millions of persons worldwide each and every day of the year.
No other event can offer the same density of high level speakers and forward thinking discussions as the UITP’s 2015 Congress says Sylvain Haon, UITP’s Director of Knowledge and Membership Services.
“The sheer quality and density of high level speakers is simply overwhelming, quite incredible to tell the truth,” he said. “I have attended my share of events on (urban) transport over the years, and there is nothing quite like this with as good a programme and so little compromise so on excellence and quality.”
In fact, the UITP World Congress and Exhibition is the one place where the transport sector’s actors have a unique chance to meet more than 1300 delegates and 270 exhibitors, as well as network and advance their career prospects, knowledge and business opportunities.
With the event being held in the seething metropolis of Milan, attending the UITP Congress is the perfect occasion to discover one of Europe's biggest trade-fair complexes, sparkling nightlife, the prestige of opera at La Scala, and endless opportunities to eat the best of Italian and world food whilst the city hosts the EXPO 2015 universal exhibition, dedicated to feeding the planet.
“I have come to realise that if you have a responsibility in our sector, not attending the event would be a mistake ” stated Haon.
“I am now getting increasingly impatient to be right there in the thick of it in Milan!” he concluded.
