Delegates will be able to go to Los Angeles for the ITS World Congress - but not for another two years.

The event had been due to take place in California next month, but Covid-19 necessitated the switch to a digital-only event, ITS World Congress All-Access, for which ITS International owner Route One Publishing is the official media partner.

However, ITS America has announced that delegates will be able to go to the Golden State for ITS World Congress 2022 when Los Angeles will be the host city - the first time it has been held in the US since 2014.

It will run from September 18-22 2022 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

“Los Angeles is the perfect venue for the 28th ITS World Congress," said ITS America president & CEO Shailen Bhatt. 

"Given the necessity of cancelling this year’s event there, we are particularly pleased to showcase it in 2022. It is a city in which smart mobility is transforming how people get around, which clearly aligns with our vision at ITS America: a better future transformed by mobility – one that is safer, greener and smarter.”

The Chinese city of Suzhou, which had been slated to hold the 2022 event, will now be World Congress host in 2023.

The events alternate between North America, Europe and Asia, with next year's congress still scheduled to be held in Hamburg, Germany.
