TRA2020 conference in April 2020 has been cancelled
Finnish Government has on 12 March issued a policy statement, that all larger seminars and events organised by the State will be cancelled until the end of May 2020. The competent authorities, Regional State Administrative Agencies, have prohibited all public events of over 500 persons for a period of one month. Traficom foresees that the prohibition will be extended to cover the dates of this event. For this reason we are compelled to announce that the TRA2020 event is cancelled.
The organisers are currently focusing on immediate actions required due to cancellation of the event, together with considerations on how the objectives of the conference could otherwise be realised. The organisers will be in contact with all participants in the near future.
We regret the disadvantage that this may cause to participants, speakers and exhibitors.
TRA2020 Transport Research Arena was meant to take place in the Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre Messukeskus between 27 and 30 April 2020. The TRA conference is the foremost biennial transport and communications event in Europe. The conference has in earlier years gathered around 2,500 transport and communications experts from Europe and beyond.
TRA2020 - The Transport Research Arena conference will take place in Helsinki on 27–30 April 2020 under the theme “Rethinking transport – towards clean and inclusive mobility”. The event provides an ample forum for the representatives from research, industry, public administration and policy-making to discuss major challenges and opportunities we are facing in transport and mobility.
