Earlier this month, the Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America) announced that the ITS World Congress scheduled for Oct. 4-8 in Los Angeles has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The society also announced the launch of a dynamic virtual event series for the ITS World Congress community—ITS World Congress ALL-ACCESS. ITS America says this will be a digital event series coming this Fall, and will serve as an immersive experience of education sessions, discussion groups, recommended content, solutions and case-studies, a knowledge and resources center, and other online opportunities to connect the global community of intelligent transportation leaders and influencers.

The association said it is committed to ensuring that the global ITS community is able to convene virtually to connect, discuss the latest trends in the industry, and be at the forefront of recovery and innovation.

“We are disappointed not to gather in person, but the spirit of innovation to solve transportation challenges is more important than ever right now," Shailen Bhatt, President & CEO of ITS America, said in a statement. "Join us for a virtual engagement to learn from leaders around the world on how different countries are using technology to solve challenges during this difficult time.”

Looking forward to next year, ITS America also announced that the ITS America 2021 Annual Meeting will take place in Atlanta, Georgia on May 17-20, at the Georgia World Congress Center.
