Why visit

  • Over recent years Smart Sustainable Cities and Sustainable Transport have figured both on the conference agenda and on the exhibition show floor. It is now time to spread the net wider and launch, alongside All-Energy, a new co-located event - Smart Urban Mobility Solutions.

    SUMS 2017, which will include an exhibition and a two day conference programme, will focus on the growing demand for new and emerging smart mobility technologies within existing transportation infrastructures, just one of the many challenges facing today’s cities. In this age of rapid change, intelligent strategies are required and efficient use and control of mobility solutions are of prime importance. The Transport System Catapult puts the estimated global market value at £900 billion by 2025.

    Transport in Scotland: the next 10 years

    “Transport is changing dramatically with the advent of new technologies, changing demand patterns and the challenges of addressing climate change. As the national transport agency, Transport Scotland is at the forefront of dealing with these challenges.

    How do we capture the nation’s vision for transport; what should our transport strategy be for the next period; and what will transport look like in 10 years’ time? And, as a key demand, what is transport’s role in supporting the wider economy.

    This session will involve insights into Transport Scotland’s role; how we see our National Transport Strategy evolving; how we gear up to the next ‘great leap forward’ in transport technology; and how we meet Climate Change Plan commitments centred both on technology and behaviour change. This will be a highly interactive session, so bring your ideas and prepare to be heard!”
