Intertraffic Mexico 2017 puts extra emphasis on tomorrow’s mobility challenges





The second edition of Intertraffic Mexico is set to highlight the best practices from the mobility industry with 180 companies on the show floor. From 15 – 17 November 2017, in Centro Cititbanamex, exhibitors from 47 countries will showcase their latest products and solutions within infrastructure, traffic management, parking, safety and smart mobility. Best practices will also be discussed during the comprehensive conference programme. The winner of the first edition of the Intertraffic Award Latin America 2017 will be revealed on Thursday 16 November.


With high expectations for the second edition, the organizers RAI Amsterdam and E.J. Krause Tarsus de Mexico look forward to welcoming over 5,000 industry professionals over the three event days. Intertraffic Mexico showcases the latest mobility products, urban development projects in Latin America and stimulates the establishment of close cooperation within governments and commercial sectors.

Last week, the official pre-show press conference was held at which important stakeholders like Jorge Martínez Ramos, Chief Executive Officer of ZACUA and Antonio Benítez, Adviser to the Chamber of Deputies, explained the huge challenge Latin American cities are facing, particularly within urban mobility. It’s expected that in 2050 70% of the population will live in cities, demanding efficient public transport, better roads and advanced solutions for companies and general public.

The 3-day conference programme has many topics related to the industry challenges, including a groundbreaking international presentation by Diana Zhou, Market Strategy Manager of Hyperloop One on Wednesday 15 November. Hyperloop’s way of transport could result in a trip from Mexico City to Guadalajara in just 38 minutes! On Thursday 16 November a round table on the “Experience of the States” is taking place as part of the conference programme. The participation of several Ministers is confirmed, and the discussion will be moderated by the Ministry of Agricultural, Territorial and Urban Development (SEDATU).

According to José Navarro, Chief Executive Officer of E.J. Krause Tarsus de Mexico, the local industry is making great progression. “Disruptive innovations are appearing with breathtaking speed and every day there are more and more advances changing our perspective of daily life. This scenario makes it vital to provide smart mobility solutions for a better quality of life and thus ensure certain minimum conditions of co-existence and safety for every member of society, minimizing traffic congestion and pollution, while boosting the region’s economy,” Navarro says. “Mexican companies with an international outlook like Indra México, Autotraffic and Zacua are some examples of companies who are bridging the gap with the global industry. Intertraffic Mexico really has become the meeting place for industry professionals to collaborate on international level and share regional experiences.”

This year also brings the first edition of the Intertraffic Award Latin America. Three companies have been nominated for their innovative project or product that improves mobility whilst taking sustainability into account. The jury has nominated Autotraffic (Smartmobility Platform), Pumatronix (ITSCAM FF Integrated OCR solution) and SICE (Automatic danger warning system at intersections). The winner will be announced at an exclusive event on Thursday 16 November and on display at the Intertraffic Worldwide Events stand as of Friday 17 November.

Intertraffic Mexico is organized by RAI Amsterdam and E.J. Krause Tarsus de Mexico. The show opening will take place on November 15th 1:00 pm, at Centro Citibanamex in front of the entrance at hall D. The exhibition times are 12:00 to 7:00pm daily and conference starts daily at 10:00 am. Press office hours: 10:00 to 7:00pm.

Intertraffic Amsterdam concludes 23rd edition on an all time high Content programme and networking opportunities ruled the show floor

April 11, 2016


11 April 2016 – Intertraffic Amsterdam concludes 23rd edition on an all time high
Content programme and networking opportunities ruled the show floor


Intertraffic Amsterdam 2016, the world’s leading trade event for infrastructure, traffic management, smart mobility, safety and parking ended last week on an all time high as exhibitors and visitors alike agreed it was one of the best events of its kind ever staged. The variety of companies, presentations from world-leading authorities, ground-breaking innovations and record numbers through the doors all combined to create an event unsurpassed in its reach and scope. The Intertraffic content and network programme was exceptionally well received, meeting the ever increasing needs for knowledge exchange and learning opportunities. Intertraffic also played host to the 100 millionth visitor to the RAI Amsterdam venue – an occasion that was celebrated by a festive welcoming reception. Intertraffic Amsterdam is organised by RAI Amsterdam and took place from 5 to 8 April.


Positive energy and great vibe
Joyce de Winter, Product Manager Intertraffic of RAI Amsterdam is clearly proud with the results of Intertraffic Amsterdam 2016. “Close to 800 companies from 47 countries exhibited, and a record grand total of 30,104 visitors from 134 countries worldwide were in attendance, resulting in nearly 450,000 business encounters. You could feel the positive energy all around, there was just a great vibe. We wanted to take our content programme to the next level and we more than met our own objectives. 4,700 participants took part in our knowledge programme overall of which 3,000 attended sessions in the Smart Mobility Theatre, which is almost double the number compared to 2014. The InnovationLAB presentations attracted 1,300 interested visitors. The international share of attendees has once again increased. This time a considerable 74% came from outside the Netherlands, with Asia and the Americas showing significant growth. The number of companies represented by visitors has gone up by nearly 6% as well. For the 2018 event we are expanding with a new hall, which is currently being built. This will be the new area for Smart Mobility, so that segment of the show will be even bigger next time. The business opportunities offered by Intertraffic speak volumes. In 2014 we were pleased with the onsite rebookings, but now we are looking at almost double those figures with 60% of the floor already rebooked for 2018.” A full visitor profile report will be published in May.

A lot of new business
Many exhibitors were keen to share their views on Intertraffic. Miles Boyd, commercial manager at first time exhibitor Hill & Smith from the UK, commented, “We’ve been very excited by this exhibition, it has reminded us how good exhibitions can be. We’re looking forward to it again in two year’s time.” Danny Longval, Vice President Worldwide Sales at Lumenera, Canada added “We have been very excited about this show. It really exceeded expectations. If anything, what I might do differently next time is bring more staff! The level of interest was so huge – we had people lining up, and I was busy and my colleagues were busy and I didn’t want to miss someone!” Marc Rummeny, Sales Manager with RTB from Germany summarized “Intertraffic has been a really great show – I’m lucky I still have my voice because I’ve done so much talking! The quality of the contacts was great, we saw many of our existing customers but also did a lot of new business, too. Obviously we will be here next time – I’m already looking forward to it!”

Intertraffic Innovation Award
The overall winner – out of a total of 91 entries – of the prestigious Intertraffic Innovation Awards was the InVipo software product, developed by CROSS Zlin. The platform is beautiful in its simplicity – one web-based interface to monitor and control all ITS in a city, compatible not only with CROSS products but with any traffic management equipment that produces data. “We are interested in making cities smarter. We think that data from cities should be open for all businesses, as it can be used to make people’s lives better,” says Lukas Duffek, CEO of CROSS Zlin Incinity. “We didn’t expect to win, but we are very happy that we did. The InVipo platform is lightweight and open and gives us the power to be very fast.”
