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.
