With the theme of “ITS Connections: Saving Time. Saving Lives.” – the 15th World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems & ITS America’s 2008 Annual Meeting and Exposition will be the largest event in the world for ITS leaders, policy makers and other industry professionals.

The World Congress on ITS (World Congress) is the premier international conference and exposition of ITS technologies and products. It attracts a cross-section of private sector and government attendees who are interested in the potential of these technologies to make surface transportation safer and more efficient.

ITS America’s Annual Meeting & Exposition (Annual Meeting) is the cornerstone of ITS America’s activities. It is the “go-to” event for most professionals concerned with surface transportation technologies—both providers and users—offering vitally important educational, networking and marketing opportunities. The Annual Meeting has evolved as the year’s premier venue for showcasing new products, connecting providers with clients and prospects, and furnishing education and news on developments in the ITS industry.

Delegates to the combined event will have access to both the World Congress and Annual Meeting events, including more than 200 extraordinary education sessions, exciting tours, a grand-scale exhibition hall and limitless opportunities to connect with an international audience in a world-class city.
