Support of Hamburg’s application to host the
ITS World Congress 2021

Hamburg pursues the professed goal of using the digital transition advantageously for establishing an innovative traffic and transport system that serves the mobility needs of the modern society. Key focus areas are enhancing the safety and efficiency as well as the environmental sustainability of transport of people and goods. The federal state government of Hamburg has adopted an ITS strategy which forms the basis for the implementation of information and communication technology as well as further technical innovations in the traffic system of the city.

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg has therefore decided to bid for hosting the ITS World Congress 2021. The application process requires a detailed description of the accomplishment of such an international congress with more than 10.000 participants, 500 exhibitors, a conference programme with more than 1.000 sessions as well as driving demonstrations on Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (ITS) from all over the world – considering substantial, organisational and financial aspects.  ITS automotive nord contributes its expertise and professional know-how to the application process and is in charge of developing the application together with the Economic Authority of Hamburg and ITS Deutschland.

Charged by the Departmental Authority for Economic Affairs, Transport and Innovation of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg.
