ITT Hub makes its debut to trailblaze the future of transport at Farnborough International

07 July 2021

Last week the inaugural Innovation and Technology in Transport (ITT Hub), the largest show of its kind in 40 years, debuted to spearhead the future of transport and revolutionise the commercial vehicle market as the industry transitions to net zero emissions and strives to reach maximum efficiency.

Held at our world-class Exhibition & Conference Centre, the exhibition was attended by 4,000 industry professionals working within the transport industry, including engineers, managing directors, government and major influencers.

Over 150 exhibitors packed out the significant 45,000 sqm indoor and outdoor venue space, showcasing a breath-taking range of high-tech products and services, while a Government Hub was attended by several government departments and agencies.

The outside Ride & Drive experiences on offer proved a popular attraction with visitors. More than 20 manufacturers, including Fiat, Ford, IVECO and DAF Trucks, showcased their ground-breaking vehicles, infrastructure and technology, while Volta Trucks debuted the Volta Zero, the world’s first purpose-built full-electric 16-tonne commercial vehicle created specifically for city centre logistics, and Wrightbus showcased the launch of its first hydrogen fuelled double deck bus.

British Astronaut Major Tim Peake CMG, one of 30 speakers at Logistics UK’s Future Logistics Conference which ran alongside the exhibition, stressed the importance of prioritising the decarbonisation of transport to protect the future health of our planet.

Mark Griffin, CEO at ITT Hub, said: “What a brilliant inauguration for ITT Hub. We were thrilled to welcome thousands of visitors, exhibitors and speakers to the event to explore the future of transport and tackle the challenges we face together as an industry. We have been overwhelmed with the positive response from the show and, after just one event, ITT Hub has already been established as a vital platform for anyone working in transport.

“As part of our growth strategy, we are curating a portfolio of recycling and waste management, cold chain storage and distribution, plus even more of the energy and charging technology infrastructure experts for next year’s event. These additions to our exhibition and programme are the next logical step in the development of the all year round ITT Hub activity and I can’t wait to show the industry what we are going to do next.”

Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International, added: “This was a remarkable debut for ITT Hub and we are thrilled we could partner with the team at Binswood Media to deliver an event of such resounding success. ITT Hub is a pioneering platform for the transport industry, which will see the launch of revolutionary innovations, landmark government announcements and invaluable relationship building amongst industry leaders.

“The future of the event is bright and, as the new owners of ITT Hub, we are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with Mark Griffin and utilising our exceptional expertise and resources to grow ITT Hub into the leading event and news channel in the sector.”

ITT Hub and the Future Logistics Conference will be returning to Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre next year, with dates confirmed of 11 - 12 May 2022.
