Dublin To Host European Intelligent Transport Systems Congress

The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) has announced that it will host the European Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Congress in 2013. Set to attract 2,000 international delegates, the three-day annual ERTICO conference was secured through a bidding process led by ITS Ireland, the Department of Transport, Dublin City Council and The CCD amongst others.

“With smaller budgets these days, it is vital that we explore ways to leverage and improve our existing transport infrastructure,” said David O’Keeffe, chairperson of ITS Ireland.  “This important European conference will put the spotlight on Irish industry and help to create opportunities and much-needed jobs in the transport technology sector.”

Scheduled to take place from 4 - 6 June, 2013, the event will provide a meeting point for the ITS community to network and share experiences and knowledge to progress and improve ITS throughout Europe.

“This event is a great win for Dublin as it will bring valuable international delegates to the City, which will help boost the local economy by over €3 million,” said Catherine Newhall-Caiger, Sales Director, The Convention Centre Dublin. “In addition, this event coincides with the Irish Presidency of the European Council and will provide a platform to showcase Ireland’s technologically advanced transport infrastructure.”

The CCD is Ireland’s first purpose-built international conference and event venue, and has hosted over 250 events and over 20,000 international delegates since opening in September 2010, which has led to a boost of €30.7 million for the local economy.
