The world’s most authoritative trade fair for traffic technology celebrates 20th edition
Traffic professionals visiting the 20th edition of Intertraffic Amsterdam from 23-26 March can indulge in a world of solutions for any traffic issue imaginable. Innovation is key at the largest and most authoritative international trade exhibition for traffic infrastructure, ITS traffic management, road safety and parking. Moreover, two new segments have been added, environment and cooperative systems. The segment environment will be featured as a green route throughout Intertraffic. Cooperative Systems will have its own stage at the “show within a show”, the i&CDrive Expo. The latter is part of the Cooperative Mobility Showcase 2010 running concurrently with and hosted by Intertraffic.
Intertraffic Amsterdam 2010 will feature over 750 exhibitors from around the world, who will display their products and solutions on an area of 53,000 m² at the RAI Convention Centre. With a new and larger hall configuration and the brand new RAI Elicium building as the core of the event, visitors can gear up for the largest sector overview of innovations, network gatherings and learning opportunities. The Intertraffic exhibition programme is segmented into six themes: infrastructure, ITS traffic management, safety and parking, environment and cooperative systems. There will also be a large outdoor area with live demonstrations.
Intertraffic Innovation Award
Exhibitors use Intertraffic Amsterdam as a platform to launch hundreds of new products and services, including some world firsts. The exhibition is seen as an ideal place to introduce the latest news to the market. The Intertraffic Innovation Award was introduced in 2002 to encourage R&D and is presented to the company with the most innovative product introduced at the exhibition. An international jury has presented a shortlist of products from the 80+ entries. The winners of the individual categories and the overall winner of the Intertraffic Innovation Award will be announced during Intertraffic Amsterdam 2010.
Topical conference programme
The exhibition programme will be supported by a range of seminars, meetings and conferences.
