Innovation gets the green light at SOLUTRANS!
All the innovations will be presented during the various award ceremonies that will take place during the trade show. The I-nnovation Awards have been further enriched this year and include a new prize: the “Digital AWARD”. Also, for the fourth consecutive edition, SOLUTRANS will host the International Awards: ITOY, IVOTY, IPUA and TRUCK INNOVATION AWARD. These awards, recognized by the industry as a whole, reward the excellence of manufacturers and showcase the trends in the industrial and urban vehicle sector.
The theme of innovation will also be highlighted during the event via a broad range of conferences covering a variety of topics that respond to the challenges of the sector.
Finally, SOLUTRANS, in partnership with TotalEnergies, will be offering a new, completely redesigned and larger testing area to meet the needs of visitors and manufacturers of heavy and light commercial vehicles. The track has also been extended and re-designed with a 25 km semi-urban route to allow professionals to test the vehicles around the park.
SOLUTRANS DIGITAL SHOW: unlimited online access to the trade show
The SOLUTRANS DIGITAL SHOW, the virtual edition of the physical exhibition, will offer registered visitors, wherever they are located in the world, an interactive space where they can visit exhibitors’ stands, contact their representatives and discover their new products… it’s all just click away!
Two weeks before the actual trade show, registered visitors will be able to start making appointments with exhibitors and take advantage of the three additional days of opening to consult an exhibitor’s offer online, thus giving them a chance to contact businesses that they wouldn’t have had time to meet during the physical edition of the trade show. They will also have access to conferences and other events, which will be broadcast live.
