New exhibitors and new players for ´IBE Intermobility and Bus Expo´
In recent weeks, other important top-level manufacturers have joined the prominent exhibitors such as Daimler Buses and Irizar Italia, including Scania and Volvo.

In detail, the more than 80 companies that have joined to date with a total area of 14,000 gross square meters of the Expo are divided as follows by macro-sectors:
• 36% manufacturers and body shops of buses and minibuses both for tourist use and for LPT
• 37% manufacturers and distributors of on-board components, accessories and spare parts
• 27% suppliers of on-board technologies, services and software for the management of fleets and passenger travel itineraries

The new meeting space LPT & Technology District
New this year is the innovative space LPT & Technology District created to meet the needs of the ´Local Public Transport´, driven by the investments allocated by the PNRR (*). The new physical space is dedicated to the meeting and comparison between the traditional and emerging protagonists of the ´intermodal convergence´ towards the new sustainable collective mobility. It is an ´ongoing´ phenomenon that still has market, regulatory and technological aspects to be explored, guided by innovation and the energy transition.
The LPT & Technology District will be characterized by the presence of two arenas that will host a series of meetings to outline scenarios and seek answers also in terms of industrial policies, which are crucial for the planning of production cycles. One of the two arenas will be dedicated to issues of interest to LPT in particular(new sustainable power supplies, implementation of MAAS systems) the other will be the ´Main Arena´ where the first national Forum of the new Sustainable and collective mobility will be held in partnership with the IlSole24Ore Group and CTS associations.

The most beautiful villages in Italy
Within the LPT & Technology District there will also be an area dedicated to the welcome and hospitality of the representatives of the Public Administrations, with a particular focus on the collaboration between IBE and Borghi più Belli d´Italia where meetings and appointments between mayors will be organized , councilors, municipal companies and exhibitors to find concrete answers to collective transport, increasingly functional to the tourism sector.

The new Technical Scientific Committee: engine of the contents of IBE Intermobility and bus Expo
In this rapidly accelerating framework, the analysis and interpretation of ´trends´ and weak signals is entrusted to the ´Technical Scientific Committee´ of IBE, chaired and coordinated by Professor Giuseppe Catalano of the ´La Sapienza´ University of Rome. , supported in the work by leading exponents of the public administration such as ANCI and most beautiful villages in Italy, important sector associations including AN.BTI and ASSTRA, UNRAE, ANFIA, Emilia Romagna Region, State Regions Conference in the Mobility sector, network of Universities (Politecnico di Milano, University of Bologna), opinion leaders, academics and associations for environmental protection including Legambiente and Kyoto Club, Federmobilità, Ministry of Sustainable Mobility Infrastructures, Ministry of Tourism, ENEA, H2IT, research institutes such as ISFORT and CNR, Sharing Mobility Observatory.

IEG partnership with MOTUS-E
Among the actions aimed at deepening and understanding the ´mega-trends´ of the sector, the adhesion of Italian Exibition Group IEG to MOTUS-E, the association that aims to dialogue between all the players in the electric mobility chain, stands out thanks to the activation of dedicated worktables. The intent is to facilitate the transition of the automotive sector towards new mobility, working alongside national institutions and especially with leading companies in the sector to guide regulatory processes according to industrial cycles. The protocol will have a strategic impact on Key Energy, SEC and above all on ´IBE Intermobility and Bus Expo´, which will increasingly be the meeting place and comparison of the champions of shared mobility of the future.
