The UITP MENA Transport Congress and Exhibition, organised under the theme ‘Building the Future of Mobility’, will take place in Dubai on 29-31 March 2021.
The MENA Transport Exhibition is the business and networking platform for the public transport sector. This biennial exhibition held in Dubai will gather the industry together including authorities and operators to exchange experiences, solutions, ideas and business opportunities concerning the latest innovations in the public transport sector.
The exhibition, organised by UITP in partnership with RTA, brings industry experts who will share the latest trends, innovations, and best practices in public transport with the Middle East and North Africa region. Be inspired and ready to tackle the future opportunities and challenges facing your organisation after hearing from experts through a series of discussions and product presentations in the Expo forum.
Digitalisation, autonomous vehicles, electric buses and sustainable urban mobility within public transport, will be the focus of the three-day exhibition. Given the strong synergies among these different sectors, gathering them all under one roof will add value, especially for authorities and operators dealing with these various services, as well as for the manufacturing and consulting companies working in these areas of business.
The urban mobility landscape was undergoing fundamental transformations with the emergence of Mobility 4.0 driven by four distinct game-changers: autonomous, connected, shared and electric mobility. Then came COVID-19!
COVID-19 has disrupted every aspect of our lives, with a significant impact on the global economy, consumer behaviour, supply chains, and indeed urban mobility. The public transport sector will play an important role in getting both our economies and people moving again. By embracing digitalisation, innovative and sustainable solutions towards mobility challenges, the public transport sector is at the core of the global transition towards a “new normal”, while ensuring the contribution to a cleaner and safer post-pandemic world.
The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) likewise is taking up this transformation in its stride. The region is certainly leading the way in innovation on many public transport fronts. From harnessing new technologies to operate electric buses and emergency fleets during lockdowns, this is a critical time for public transport in MENA.
With this backdrop, the theme ‘Building the Future of Mobility’ is fitting for the MENA Transport Congress and Exhibition to be held in Dubai from 29 – 31 March 2021.
The MENA Transport Congress & Exhibition (MTCE) is part of the UITP Digital World Tour, a series of digital and hybrid events taking place across the globe in 2020/2021, jointly organised by UITP and Dubai Roads and Transport Authority, which aims to promote public transport throughout the region and showcase the developments in public transport on a global stage.
