Next year, UITP will host the Global Public Transport Summit in Stockholm (9-12 June 2019) and over the next year, we will be counting down with a special focus on our Exhibition.
November marks seven months to go until the biggest event in public transport and urban mobility opens its doors!
So let’s get down to it, and bring you the latest update on who’s coming, who’s showing and what you can see from the international public transport community, mobility decision-makers and industry suppliers, all under one roof.
UITP’s biennial Summit, organised in partnership with 2019 local host SL, and is the only event that covers the challenges of urban mobility worldwide.

So what else is new for UITP in Stockholm?
At this edition of our Global Public Transport Summit, we will have three brand new spaces where the opportunity to stand out from the crowd will be second to none! If you want the sector to know about you, then make sure you’re here!
First we have “The Studio: Where Ideas come to Life”.
With the rise of digitalisation and new technologies, came the proceeding tide of new mobility services and innovative new business models. At the Global Public Transport Summit, UITP provides a dedicated exhibition space for start-up companies and non-traditional transport players to showcase innovation and what they bring to the urban public transport sector. The Studio is bound to trigger discussion and offer opportunities for partnerships.
This exhibition area offers 32 exhibition spots. These exhibition spaces are sold without profit.
The Studio will feature one Expo Session per day at lunch time, during which companies from the exhibition area will pitch their ideas.
There will also be two one-hour Poster Sessions per day dedicated to the exhibitors from this zone to ensure high visibility and opportunities to present their product.
Reserve your space at The Studio for the chance to get international recognition for your growing business at the biggest public transport exhibition of 2019!
Then we have the Test Drive Zone.
The Global Public Transport Summit at Stockholm 2019 offers a unique opportunity to test drive electric buses and autonomous vehicles in a dedicated outdoor parking area.
Take this chance to get potential clients and exhibition visitors ‘on board’ and show them the benefits of electric buses and autonomous vehicles!
And finally, we have the Design Zone and Cycling Circuit.
Visitors will experience alternative mobility solutions on the Cycling Circuit on the Exhibition floor and explore the impact of design on travel experience in the Design Zone.
Exhibitors will have the opportunity to showcase a leading contribution to sustainable urban mobility within an international public transport community.
