The ITS Australia National Awards are a celebration of excellence in the Intelligent Transport Systems industry, and are proudly hosted by ITS Australia annually.

The 2017 Awards Presentation Night Dinner will be held on Thursday 23 November 2017 at The Pavilion, Arts Centre Melbourne. Sitting beneath Melbourne’s famous spire, the Arts Centre is famous for hosting many of the world’s most talented performers and will be the perfect backdrop to celebrate achievements in the Australian Intelligent Transport Industry.

The National ITS Awards program is a major ITS Australia initiative to recognise professional ITS expertise and to raise awareness across all levels of government and community about the benefits of ITS technologies to  our cities, economy, environment, transportation and  everyday lives. Winning an award is a prestigious industry achievement and a valuable marketing tool. Winners of the Industry and Government Awards will be considered for nomination by ITS Australia for the chance to be recognised at the 2018 ITS World Congress for an Asia Pacific Achievement Award.

Who Should Apply

Intelligent transport system technology researchers, developers, infrastructure providers, manufacturers and young ITS professionals are encouraged to submit.
