The defining event in public transport is moving to December 2021: join us in building the next edition together
As we look towards the times ahead, it’s important for UITP to always take the necessary steps to bring the public transport sector together.
With a proud history spanning 135 years, the UITP Global Public Transport Summit is the world’s major platform for public transport professionals.
As we consider the changes happening around the world, we’ve made the joint decision with our local event host The Department of Transport Victoria to move the next edition of the UITP Global Public Transport Summit from 6-9 June 2021 to 14-17 December 2021 at the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre.
We can’t do this without your continued support.
While facing the impacts of a global pandemic, we’ve made sure that the necessary decisions have been made to put the comfort, health and safety of everyone involved as our number one priority.
We are also putting a pause on our Call for Abstracts, so if you are interested in becoming a speaker at #UITP2021, then your time to become involved will re-open a little further down the line, and be considered alongside those who have already submitted their ideas.
With the move to December, the Summit lands in the middle of Melbourne’s summer, giving everyone involved the chance to enjoy the full Australian experience!
The UITP Summit brings together the brightest and best-known names to debate and implement the next steps for our cities. This won’t change. We will use this time to build an even bigger and better edition of the world’s largest event dedicated to urban mobility.
Moving forward, we will continue to stay actively informed and engaged with the ongoing local and global developments during the coronavirus pandemic.
We thank all of the local players in Melbourne for their ongoing support, including the Melbourne Convention Bureau, who have been a great supporter of the changes to our timetable.
We’ll provide you with regular updates right here on our Summit website and the official Summit Twitter feed.
We can’t wait to see you all in Melbourne in December 2021.
So hold on just a little longer…
and we will meet soon at another UITP Summit to remember!
