“There are no plans for cancellation or postponement of the show, but the team will of course be staying in tune with all developments,” a statement from ITS America (ITSA) says.

“Reed Exhibitions and ITSA are closely following the latest guidance from local, state and national authorities regarding the Covid-19 virus as it relates to travel to, and participation in, our events. The health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff is our number one priority.”

Guidelines already issued by LA mayor Eric Garcetti are designed to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, “strengthening the local response to the outbreak with new measures”, ITSA continues.

The theme of ITSWC 2020 is ‘The New Age of Mobility’ and its education programme themes will include seamless mobility, the path to Vision Zero, disruption on the digital highway and data, connectivity, intelligent and automated vehicles.
