Hybrid event replaces conference
An annual transport conference is being rebooted as a hybrid event after being forced to cancel because of a coronavirus scare in Wellington.
T-Tech 2021, which is organised by Intelligent Transport Systems NZ (ITSNZ), was forced to abandon its original plans for a two-day event at Te Papa Tongarewa just hours after opening on June 23.
About 150 delegates were evacuated from the venue because it was identified as a potential Covid-19 exposure site by the Ministry of Health.
ITSNZ has now announced details of T-Tech Reboot #1, which will feature networking opportunities and presentations from eight speakers from the Ministry of Transport and Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency.
The hybrid event will be held in-person at Aurecon in Fanshawe Street, Auckland, and the Ministry of Transport, Wellington, as well as being live-streamed from 4pm on August 4. It is free for T-Tech delegates and ITSNZ members, or $25 for non-members
Presentations will deliver updates on work either under way or completed, and will cover a range of subjects, including autonomous vehicles policy, road pricing policy, agent-based modelling, ITS standards and networks, and urban mobility.
T-Tech Reboot #2 will be held in Wellington on September 22 immediately after ITSNZ’s annual general meeting. More details and a location will be released in due course.
