ITS Australia has announced that the 2018 Australian Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Summit will be hosted in partnership with Transport for New South Wales, and Roads and Maritime Services.
The 6th Australian ITS Summit will bring together Australian and international executives from the emerging transport technology sector.
Transport plays an essential role in any economy, whether moving people or freight. The combined pressure to provide better and more transport means that the opportunity to develop and deploy new technology, and technology-based transport improvements, are of great social and economic significance.
With speakers and attendees from America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Australia, combined with a strong industry exhibition, sponsorship, and government support, the Australian ITS Summit 2018 outcomes will have positive impacts locally and internationally.
Ken Kanofski, Chief Executive Roads and Maritime Services said “Roads and Maritime Services is delighted to join together with ITS Australia to be the Premier Partner of the Intelligent Transport Systems Summit 2018. Our sponsorship of the Australian ITS Summit is a joint effort with Transport for NSW to contribute to the research, development, and delivery of initiatives which utilise ITS for the benefit of our customers.
“The future and performance of the road network and our customers’ experience rests with how we better utilise new technologies. The Australian ITS Summit provides an important platform for the industry to share information and to enable us to be future ready in this global transport evolution.”
The 2018 Australian ITS Summit will focus on the theme of Shaping Future Transport and is being held at the International Convention Centre Sydney, Darling Harbour. The 2018 Australian ITS Summit will be a multi-stream conference with over 120 presentations scheduled across 24 break-out sessions, over 2 days. Keynote and Plenary presentations will be interspersed with panel discussions and technical tours.
Susan Harris, CEO ITS Australia said “The Australian ITS Summit has continued to grow each year in terms of attendance and importance to the ITS industry. This is reflected in the partnership with Transport for New South Wales, and Roads and Maritime Services. We value their engagement in this conference and look forward to working together with them to provide a robust, engaging conference.
We look forward to welcoming the Australian and international ITS industry to the 2018 Australian ITS Summit and bringing together the leaders in transport technology and ITS, to share their ideas and plans, and make this the best Australian ITS Summit yet.”
