The seventh edition of the integrated twin show – TrafficInfraTech Expo and Parking InfraTech Expo – was a rare combination of high-level business activity, knowledge sharing and networking with a bit of fun too…
The awareness and enthusiasm among the stakeholders reflected on all the three days of the Expo, with many committing to come back again next year in Mumbai in November
ITS, Multi-level Parking, Tolling, EVs, Mobile Apps, Safety Barriers, Security Products, Telematics, Display Systems, Breath Analysers, Reflectors… name it, I could find every solution here. What a fantastic show!” said an elated visitor after completing his rounds on the second day. The same sentiment was echoed all through the three days of the integrated twin Expos – TrafficInfraTech Expo and Parking InfraTech Expo.
“I have visited the previous edition of TrafficInfraTech Expo at Hyderabad. I find a lot of effort being put in to bring together all the concerned stakeholders at one place. I am really impressed with the kind of stalls and the products showcased at the expo. I am informed about a medium speed weigh-in-motion bridge, that can measure up to a speed of 65kms an hour. One is convinced that in the next four-five years road safety is going to remain the focus” said Yudhvir Singh Malik, Secretary, MoRTH who inaugurated Smart Mobility Expo along with the Industry leaders.
Supported by the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways, NITI Aayog and other organisations, the three-day Expo witnessed a rare combination of high-level business activity, knowledge sharing and networking with a bit of fun too. For Australian Trade and Investment Commission, the coming in of Australia as the country partner was very fulfilling and a happy experience. “We will be back at the Show next year with bigger presence,” stated Munish Sharma, Trade Commissioner, Austrade. At the inaugural Conference session Austrade released Future Transport and Mobility Industry Capability Report (ICR).
The Expo created a never before ambience with over 4000 visitors from multiple segments walking in. Encouragingly, many promised to come back to the Show in November 2019 at the same venue! “This is not just a business venue, this is also the annual meeting point for the Indian Traffic industry”, voiced some.
