UITP Congress & Exhibition

The International Association of Public Transport (UITP) is the world’s only international platform for urban public transportation. For almost 130 years, since 1885, it has promoted studies and research, the sharing of know-how, and numerous other activities in its chosen field. Today it has 3,400 members from 92 countries, many of them public transport operators, transport authorities, and manufacturers.

UITP holds a World Congress, together with an Exhibition, once every two years, and the Exhibition welcomes key players in the sector who attend the World Congress. Japan Overseas Rolling Stock Association (JORSA) has participated in the event for some time, in collaboration with its member companies.

The 60th UITP World Congress and Exhibition will be held for three days from 27 to 29 May this year in Geneva, Switzerland. JORSA will be exhibiting at the Japan stand , together with five entities that are also keen to exhibit.
