Bringing the future of transport to life – ITT Hub 2022


Following its successful launch year, the second instalment of Innovation and Technology in Transport Hub (ITT Hub) will bring the future of transport innovation to life across two days of knowledge sharing, networking and product launches.

BRIDGING PASSENGER AND COMMERCIAL VEHICLE SECTORS

Taking place on 11-12 May 2022 at Farnborough International’s exhibition and conference centre, ITT Hub is rapidly becoming the go-to event for both the commercial and passenger road transport sector, bringing together the latest innovation and technology for bus, coach, truck, van, last mile and autonomous vehicle fleets.

MAJOR MANUFACTUERS AND SUPPLIERS EXHIBITING

More than 110 exhibitors are taking part this year, including major Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) such as DAF Trucks, Renault Trucks, Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Iveco and Ford. They will be joined by Volta Trucks, an Anglo-Swedish start-up company which manufactures zero-emission trucks, as well as suppliers across the vehicles, warehouse, fleet management, software, safety, and compliance sectors such as Harris Maxus, TRAILAR, Schmitz Cargobull, Tachosys, TruTac, TyreWatch, Disc-Lock, Air Products and Argent Energy.

CONFERENCE TO FEATURE INFLUENTIAL SPEAKERS

Supported by commercial partners National Grid, Western Power Distribution (WPD), Zenobē, Lloyds Bank and Lex Autolease, the event will once again incorporate Logistics UK’s Future Logistics Conference. Space scientist and presenter of the BBC’s long-running The Sky at Night programme Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE, will deliver the keynote speech on the first day of the conference and Transport Minister Trudy Harrison MP (pictured) will deliver the keynote on the second day of the show. Industry experts from National Grid, UPS, Volvo Trucks, Zenobē, RAC Foundation and many more will contribute to the thinking and debate across the two-day conference programme.

SECTOR HUBS TO SHARE INFORMATION AND INSIGHT

As the transport industry navigates its path to transitioning to net zero, the need for collaboration across other industry sectors is more vital than ever. To provide sector-specific platforms to enable thought leadership, collaboration and knowledge share, ITT has increased the number of insight hubs across the show. These include the Energy Theatre Hub, hosted by National Grid and Western Power Distribution, the Bus & Coach Hub, the Future Van Hub, Government Hub, Talent Hub, EV Café and Cold Chain Hub.

RIDE AND DRIVE

In a unique feature for events of this scale, ITT Hub offers the chance for ride-and-drive experiences on public roads as part of the two-day event. Those with an appropriate driving licence can get behind the wheel of a variety of vehicles on a test route that starts from the heart of the exhibition and includes a selection of local roads. With a number of new models being launched by manufacturers and unveiled at the show, more than 130 vehicles will be showcased across the exhibitor stands and demonstration facility.

Kevin Green, Director of Marketing & Communications, Logistics UK, said: “Following last year’s successful inaugural ITT Hub event, this year’s conference will take a far-reaching view of the forces shaping the industry, and explore some of the profound challenges coming down the track. I urge all transport professionals with an interest in the trends that are accelerating change in our sector to book their place on this free-to-attend ITT Hub event without delay.”
