Dear members,

We look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow at the Annual General Assembly in Rotterdam! Even more than before, this AGA will offer a platform for fruitful exchange on the priorities for the year to come. You will have the opportunity to engage in interactive discussions with other Polis members and the secretariat.

The Polis Conference will kick off the day after, on 1 December. We will witness a new record number of participants, having received over 450 registrations. We are proud to see how our Annual Polis Conference has become a key event for urban mobility experts to meet each other and discuss transport innovation.

Should you not be able to join us in Rotterdam, make sure to stay connected to us on twitter through #polis16. Also, all presentations will be made available online next week.

Please login to the Polis website as a member to access all information addressed to Polis members only (green headline). If you do not know your login details, please contact us.

For now, I wish you a pleasant read and a safe trip to Rotterdam!

Kind regards,
Karen Vancluysen
Secretary General
