International Bus Conference 2019. The topics

A key challenge facing the bus sector is how to transform a bus company from being a traditional labour intensive business into a technology and resource driven enterprise.

To address this, at the International Bus Conference, we will focus on both everyday operational aspects as well as looking at business opportunities beyond traditional bus operations. 

The International Bus Conference will be the perfect occasion to meet the experts from innovative EU funded projects and other UITP initiatives about buses combined with live demonstrations in the Busworld Europe exhibition. Discover and learn more about the projects and how they are changing the sector.
