Brisbane announced as host of the 17th Asia Pacific ITS Forum in 2020
Brisbane is further cementing its reputation as Australia’s new world city, after being selected to host the 17th Intelligent Transport Systems Asia Pacific Forum in May 2020 (ITSAP2020).
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said it was an honour for Queensland to be selected as the 2020 host location, with the announcement made during the recent ITS Asia Pacific Forum held in Fukuoka, Japan.
“Queensland is at the forefront of developing and deploying ITS technologies, particularly in the area of cooperative and automated vehicles, and I am delighted the forum will be held in Brisbane in 2020,” Mr. Bailey said.
“It is an exciting era for ITS and the ITS Asia Pacific Forum provides an opportunity to bring the industry together to share how far we have come, and prepare for the journey ahead.
“As the location for the largest trial of Cooperative-ITS in Australia, with public deployment due in late 2019, the best way to understand how we do ITS in Queensland is to come experience it for yourself.”
