It will be held the day before the ITS Annual Conference which is at the same location. Recent interactions of the User Group have been online but this event will be an in person event only.
As usual the User Group is an open invitation to Road Authority professionals to network and share best practice in the expanding brief of Intelligent Transport Systems.
