Intertraffic is announcing a change to its Awards format, with altered classifications and an opportunity for non-exhibiting organisations to join the competition, with an entry deadline of February 20th, 2020. The Intertraffic Awards winners will be revealed during the opening ceremony of Intertraffic Amsterdam, the leading global event for the traffic technology and mobility sector. The 25th edition of Intertraffic Amsterdam will be staged from 21-24 April 2020 at RAI Amsterdam, with an anticipated 900 exhibitors and 35,000 industry professionals in attendance.
Joyce de Winter, Exhibition Manager of Intertraffic Amsterdam, substantiates the change in format. ”The transition of the traffic technology and mobility industry towards a sustainable and digital world is ongoing. The Intertraffic Awards were first introduced in 2002 to reward innovation, subdivided in a number of product based categories. To reflect the current industry dynamics where collaboration, partnerships and a purpose driven approach are instrumental to be future proof, we have altered the classifications of the Intertraffic Awards. They are now thematic rather than product segmented.”
Another tweak is that the Awards competition is lowering its threshold by opening the doors to a broader range of contenders. De Winter adds “Innovation doesn’t stop at the show floor, so we are happy to welcome entries from non-exhibiting, market related, organizations.” Participation is free of charge for exhibitors of Intertraffic Amsterdam 2020. Other applicants pay a participation fee of €100.00 (excluding VAT) per entry. This fee is non-refundable and will be donated to Intertraffic’s designated charity, Flying Doctors.
