ITS (UK) is showing its commitment to the return of in-person events by exhibiting at the popular JCT Traffic Signals Symposium in Nottingham this September.
It’ll be the first in-person event ITS (UK) has attended since its own Enforcement Forum met at Jenoptik in Camberley in early March 2020.
JCT are members of ITS (UK) and the company’s Traffic Signals Symposium is a key event bringing together experts in signals technology and traffic management from across public and private sectors plus academia. It takes place on the 15 and 16 September at Nottingham Trent University.
“I can’t wait to be back meeting our members and new contacts face-to-face,” commented ITS (UK) Secretary General Jennie Martin. “After nearly 18 months of Zoom meetings we will finally have the chance to actually interact with people and chat in small, random groups the way we used to. The JCT Traffic Signals Symposium is a key event for many involved in Intelligent Transport Systems so I think we will get a lot out of our time there listening to the papers, seeing other exhibitors and networking.”
The event covers a wide range of subjects including how data from signals is being used to prioritise pedestrian and cycling safety, about London’s Streetspace Plan and using real-time traffic modelling to reduce tailpipe emissions and influence traffic signals. A record 25 exhibitors have signed up and more than ten Transport for London staff are attending as delegates.
“As a member of ITS (UK), JCT is delighted to welcome Jennie Martin and her colleague Rukshan Soysa to exhibit at the Symposium this year,” added JCT Director John Nightingale, who is managing the event. “I’m sure their insight, knowledge and contacts will really add to the quality of the exhibition floor.”
ITS (UK) is planning a busy autumn of events, also committing to attending the ITS World Congress in Hamburg and Highways UK in Birmingham as well as hosting a number of its own events. The Society plans that the majority of its events in the future will be hybrid – featuring in person meetings which are also streamed live and recorded for on-demand viewing.
The JCT Traffic Signals Symposium takes place on Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 September with MOVA user group and first social event on Tuesday 14 at The Nottingham Conference Centre, Nottingham Trent University.
