ITS World Congress Melbourne app now available
First publishedin ITS World Congress
ITS Australia has announced the introduction of the ITS World Congress Mobile App, powered by Here Maps which will allow delegates to experience the benefits of real-time location services and customised journey planning as they navigate their way around the event venues, as well as across the city of Melbourne.
With a constant stream of plenary sessions, executive forums, exhibitions, demonstrations and technical tours taking place across multiple sites and times throughout the four day ITS World Congress, delegates will be able to plan the fastest route from their hotel to an exact room or booth by using the Here real-time step-by-step navigation tools.
The ITS World Congress Mobile App will give delegates access to digital 3D floor plans and venue maps, so it's not only useful for directing people to locations but helping them identify key landmarks along the way. Additionally, registered delegates will have expanded capability including enhanced delegate networking and the ability to book a demonstration via the congress app.
Susan Harris, CEO ITS Australia believes the app will transform the way people navigate the event. “With over 7,000 delegates set to embark on MCEC and our partner venues over the week of the World Congress, to be able to accurately navigate their way to different sessions and exhibitions, whilst also having an understanding on their real-time environs, is going to be hugely beneficial for the overall experience of our delegates.
“This is a World Congress game-changer and we're thrilled such technology will be introduced in Melbourne for the first time. As the Congress is focused on demonstrating the latest technology in traffic and transport, why wouldn't we want to create an app to match!" Harris added.
