The conference takes place 24-25 June, 2020, in Cologne, Germany alongside iVT Expo, at which no full vehicles will be on show. Instead the exhibition, which is completely free to attend, only showcases the components and technologies that will shape the next generation of industrial vehicles. The show is closed to the general public, ensuring a strong business focus and two intensive days of networking and solution sourcing.
