Intelligent Transportation Systems-Hong Kong (ITS-HK) and the ITS Asia Pacific Forum organising committee extend a warm invitation to local, regional and worldwide specialists, experts and government officials in the transportation and smart city sectors to join the upcoming 15th ITS Asia Pacific Forum and Exhibition in Hong Kong SAR, China from 27 to 29 June 2017.
Billions of dollars continue to be invested in new and enhanced transportation infrastructure to make our urban environment smarter, liveable and more sustainable in response to the pressures of growing urbanisation, regional development and drivers of national competitiveness. The Hong Kong SAR government has long demonstrated its commitment through investments in mega transport infrastructure projects to enable closer integration within the Pearl River Delta region. Under the theme “Metropolitan Transportation Infrastructure in Smart Cities”, this event provides a unique platform to share application experience, get to grips with the latest innovations in the policies and technologies that underpin urban mobility, and to explore collaboration opportunities.

The ITS World Congress 2017, produced by ITS America in conjunction with ITS Canada and co-organised by ITS Europe and ITS Asia-Pacific, brings together global leaders in intelligent and transformative transportation to showcase and evaluate the latest innovative concepts, active prototypes, and live systems. Academics, researchers, policymakers, businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, implementers, and the media—thousands of people from the transport, automotive, telecommunications, and technology sectors — will engage in robust discussions and spirited debates as to how this rapidly changing and ever-expanding industry is addressing the very real challenges facing our mobile, connected societies today and in the future.
A highlight of the event will be the Smart Cities Pavilion. As a designated section of the Exhibit Hall, the Pavilion will highlight Smart Cities from around the world, continuing the discussion and debate around how policy can advance the future of integrated mobility, how transportation is moving to the center of the Internet of Things and how technological solutions and the IoT are changing cities. It will serve as a learning laboratory and feature information about leading international smart cities.
ITS World Congress 2017 will offer cutting-edge keynotes and educational programming presented by intelligent transportation experts from all over the world. Technical Papers will address technical subjects as well as the institutional, business, and economic aspects of intelligent transportation and supporting systems. The educational program will also feature Full Scientific Papers, focused on research and scholarship, as well as Special Interest Sessions.
As part of this event, Congress organisers are planning to feature live demonstrations of ITS technologies. The City of Montréal will create a virtual testbed on the streets adjacent to the Palais des congrès. This testbed will include an arterial loop circling the Palais and a section of a nearby limited access highway that will be equipped with DSRC roadside units integrated with local signal controllers to support demonstrations of Connected Vehicle technologies.
The ITS World Congress 2017 exhibit hall will showcase the latest advances and solutions in an ITS market that is projected to reach $143 billion by 2020. The event will offer participants and companies — representing the entire spectrum of an ever-growing ITS world — unparalleled opportunities for B2B and B2G networking and business growth.
