Innovation and Technology in Transport Hub 2021 - The largest show of its kind in the past 40 years, bringing together all the key innovations in commercial vehicles and passenger transport and the latest technology for the sector.

 

ITT Hub is a new, unique and pioneering FREE two-day event for the transport and logistics sector, combining traditional, large scale exhibition spaces with outdoor testing and experiential opportunities to observe the very latest in design and technology.  In addition, The Future Logistics conference programme from Logistics UK, opened by a keynote address from astronaut Major Tim Peake, will play host to a number of thought leadership and will aim to provoke ideas and help to shape the transport infrastructure of tomorrow.

 

The event will take place on Wednesday 30th June and 1st July 2021 at the state-of-the-art Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, located at Farnborough International Airfield. It is a COVID secure environment and the event will adhere to the latest government guidance – the protection and safety of both staff and visitors is of paramount importance.

Over 150 exhibitors will be housed in more than 20,000 m2 of dedicated exhibition space inside Farnborough Airport’s new, state of the art exhibition halls.  In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to experience a range of more than 50 ride and drive vehicles on site and on an adjoining three-mile-long route, on the apron of the airport.

Day 1

  • Keynote: Tim Peake, 10.00am - 11.00am

Tim Peake was the first British astronaut to visit the International Space Station, where his work during Mission Principia inspired millions about the possibilities which space could offer.  A former test pilot, he is also a STEM ambassador, schools’ speaker and best-selling author.

His keynote speech will kick off two days of debate and discussions at ITT Hub 2021.

 

“I am thrilled to be speaking at Logistics UK's Future Logistics Conference, to engage with key businesses across the logistics sector and identify areas where inspiration could provide solutions for 21st century challenges.

I am also looking forward to experiencing first-hand the wide range of new options for logistics which the ITT Hub will have on show – and possibly even seeing what it’s like to experience an autonomous vehicle.  60 years ago, man had not even set foot on the moon, but the boundaries of what’s possible have been expanded, and I look forward to challenging visitors at next year’s conference to push their horizons and help to shape the industry of tomorrow.”
