There’s just two days to go until the doors open for the free Innovation and Technology in Transport (ITT) Hub event – said to be the largest show of its kind in 40 years.
Taking place at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre on 30 June 2021 and 1 July 2021, the event combines test drives with new vehicle unveilings, an extensive Government Hub, Logistics UK’s Future Logistics Conference and the Autonomous and Last-Mile Electric Hub – in total, the event will showcase more than 150 exhibitors.
At the Ride & Drive section, 14 vehicle manufacturers will take part, including Iveco, Renault Trucks, Ford, Pelican Yutong, Harris Maxus, BYD, Alexander Dennis and Schmitz Cargobull.
The event will also feature a number of vehicle debuts include DAF’s new generation of trucks as well as new models from Volta Trucks and Fiat Professional.
Alongside the Ride & Drive will be an Autonomous and Last-Mile Electric Hub, allowing visitors the chance to test ride electric scooters and motorbikes designed for couriers and meal deliveries, as well as last-mile electric cargo trikes and a fully autonomous passenger pod.
ITT Hub will also host Logistics UK’s Future Logistics Conference, which features a line-up of more than 30 speakers, including British astronaut Major Tim Peake and senior representatives National Grid, Highways England and DHL.
The event will also feature an extensive Government Hub, where key departments such as the Department for International Trade and Department for Transport will be on hand.
Kevin Green, marketing & communications director at Logistics UK, said: “With decarbonisation a high priority across the transport and logistics sector, and the continuous development of various new technologies, ITT Hub is the ideal event to bring industry together to celebrate the progress being made in this incredibly dynamic sector. The sessions and conversations that will be taking place during the Future Logistics Conference will no doubt help to set the agenda for the future of our sector as we move forward in these exciting times.”
The event is being run in line with safe, Covid-compliant measures for attendees, to provide peace of mind for visitors. Pre-registration is required for all attendees and all visitors wanting to try a vehicle for themselves will need to pre-arrange a test drive with the exhibitor at the event and have their driving licence checked and approved at the Licence Bureau stand onsite.
