UITP Global Public Transport Summit 2023

The UITP Global Public Transport Summit 2023 is the largest event of its kind focused on public transport - taking place in Barcelona, Spain, from 4 to 7 June 2023, it will combine a diverse programme of world-class Congress sessions and an outstanding Exhibition full of the latest innovations, solutions and products.

The theme for the 2023 Global Public Transport Summit is ‘Bright Light of the City’.

Barcelona is a city where the light shines brightly through its rich Mediterranean culture, beautiful architecture, art, food and social activities, and public transport is the way the bright light of this city, like so many others, shines through.

Indeed, public transport gives passengers the freedom to discover the city, to commute, and meet friends and family. It provides more than a necessary service; it brightens the urban landscape. It is, by all means, one of the brightest solutions you can make to move around the city.
