From 14th to 17th of May was held in Montréal the UITP Global Public Transport Summit, a worldwide event in the field, with this year 2500 participants from 84 countries, 330 companies from 30 countries displaying their innovative products and solutions in the 25,000 sqm Exhibition, with more than 13,000 visitors.
For CNA, such an important and strategic event, with high-level representatives of public transport, was of course an amazing opportunity to present its latest developments for the benefice of transport authorities and operators.
Numerous events organized by CNA punctuated these 3 days of the UITP summit:
- A General Assembly was held in the premises of the Société des Transports de Montréal, and we thank strongly our hosts for their support. This general assembly has seen the election of a new Board of Directors, composed of ACTV, CTS, INTERPARKING, LANDKREIS KONSTANZ, OTLIS, RATP, RIGAS KARTE, SNCF, STIB. This new Board of Directorselected its functions of chairman, vice-presidents, general secretary and treasurer.
- The Calypso booth on the UITP exhibition allowed to demonstrate the latest developments of CNA in the field of Mobile Ticketing and Account Based Ticketing solutions and the Software Development Kit which supports the CNA open source policy. It was mainly the opportunity to establish many contacts with authorities, operators, manufacturers and to evaluate the strong interest towards Calypso and its new strategy.
- The CNA strategy towards open source was presented by Ph. Vappereau, Chairman, during the “Ticketing and Payment” focus session. Please find here his presentation.
- A convivial evening was organized at the Pullman bar, a perfect moment for exchanges and networking.
CNA strongly thanks all those who have helped us to ensure the success of these different events, and all those who have showed their interest in Calypso and its future.
