Aimed to drive innovation and create a revolution in the world of mobility and transport infrastructure, Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India joins forces with Virtual Info Systems to organise ‘Smart Mobility Expo’ - India’s only integrated expo covering smart mobility, traffic, transport, parking and road infrastructure.

This dynamic collaboration of Virtual Info Systems and Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India signals innovations and expansion of the Smart Mobility Expo to other core product profiles such as electric vehicles, connected and autonomous vehicles, and hi-speed travel modes, supported by emerging technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), data flow and cloud services.

The upcoming edition of ‘Smart Mobility Expo’ covering TrafficInfraTech Expo, Parking InfraTech Expo and RoadInfraTech Expo, is scheduled from 10 – 12 October 2023 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. These together encapsulate the complete mobility and transport infrastructure industry by presenting best-in-class solutions for roads, highway safety, security seamless travel, crash/noise prevention, pollution, Intelligent transport, parking management and sustainable infrastructure & public transport systems. The past editions of the exhibition have always been a “must attend” event for key decision makers right from government departments, municipal corporations, enforcement authorities, transport departments, infrastructure companies, parking management companies, project consultants, corporates, railways, metro rail, bus operators, OEMs, and tourism, township and real estate sectors.

Present in the Indian market for more than two decades, Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India will extend its strategic expertise and capacity along with global business understanding to channelise its vast network in expanding the Smart Mobility Expo. On this strategic collaboration, Mr Raj Manek, Executive Director & Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd, shared: “I am glad that we have entered into this partnership for a show which has the potential to change the landscape of Indian mobility and transport infrastructure. India’s rapid urbanisation and the much-talked-about successful digital revolution are all set to transform the way India will commute.” “Through this dynamic synergy for Smart Mobility Expo – we are confident that the show will scale new heights. A series of new age and modern mobility solutions leveraging futuristic automated technologies like the IoT, AI, 5G Internet cloud engineering and more will seamlessly link the players from this industry with the key decision makers to drive
the change as the Government of India’s vision,” Mr Manek further explained.

The show functions as a strong source of developing networks with government officials from associated departments and allows the surfacing of hi-tech transport solutions for the Indian population. Expressing his view on this association, Mr Jayaram Nair, Chairman, VIS Group says: “This collaboration is a significant milestone in the passionate journey of TrafficInfraTech Expo. Together with other Expos over a decade, this will create a global platform for the Indian traffic and transport industry. Changing with innovations and worldwide mobility demands, it is important to address the mobility ecosystem holistically. We are sure this partnership will lead us to greater heights.” According to the Market Research Future Report 2022 (MRFR), ‘Smart Transportation’ is set to propel advanced mobility facilities with an estimated market expansion of a whopping USD 320 billion by the end of this decade. It is estimated that by 2050, 70% of India’s population will be residing in cities. These call for fast-paced developments to meet the demanding needs of the Indian population. India is currently one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and is also witnessing massive opportunities in the newly emerging mobility ecosystem and technologies
to drive change.
