CCD wins bid for transport systems congress

The Convention Centre Dublin (CCD) has announced it is to host the European Intelligent Transport Systems Congress 2013.

ERTICO-ITS Europe is a multi-sector, public/private partnership pursuing the development and deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (ITS).

The ERTICO European Congress is expected to attract 2,000 international delegates to Dublin. 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 annual conference was secured through a competitive bidding process led by the Irish Team, which included ITS Ireland, the Department of Transport, Dublin City Council and the CCD amongst others.   

"This event coincides with the Irish Presidency of the European Council and will provide a platform to showcase Ireland’s technologically advanced transport infrastructure," said Catherine Newhall-Caiger, sales director at the CCD.
