Following the success of Smart Moving 2005, which was attended by nearly 300 ITS professionals from all around the world, next year’s edition promises to build on this. ITS (UK) is supported in producing the event by ITS Canada and ITS America, as well as by the European national ITS associations in Romania, Norway, the Netherlands, Sweden and Italy. It also has the support of the UK Department for Transport and the Highways Agency.

The Conference begins on Tuesday 17 April and ends on Thursday 19 April 2007. There will be an exciting opening plenary session on the morning of Tuesday 17 April for all delegates and then there will be a series of half day seminars. The sessions will be arranged so that delegates can create their own individual conference package and can attend the sessions that appeal to them.

SMART MOVING 2007 will appeal to governments and those companies supplying services to governments and the public. It will appeal to all levels within the public and private sector organisations, including: elected members, policy makers, CEOS, directors, general managers, project managers, consultants, traffic and transport engineers, researchers, sales and marketing personnel, and fleet managers.

Smart Moving is held alongside the long-established Traffex Exhibition, the UK’s leading traffic technology exhibition.

The theme for the SMART MOVING 2007 Conference will be “SMART Solutions for Today”.

Since SMART MOVING 2003, ITS systems have become truly mainstream. Safer, quicker, cleaner and more reliable movement of people and goods is being achieved through the application of Intelligent Transport Systems. But demand for travel continues to increase, and ITS must keep pace in order to continue to deliver those important benefits. Above all, the importance of ITS in enabling SMART choices and decisions for travellers and those moving goods is now coming to the fore. Accurate, easily accessible information will create a truly SMART travel and freight environment, and is the key to successful integration.

At SMART MOVING 2007 you will hear how the very latest ITS solutions and applications deal with the management, technical, institutional and legal issues surrounding the various aspects of:

SMART roads
SMART vehicles
SMART travellers
SMART ticketing and payment
SMART freight
SMART communications
