The UITP made the decision with local event host, the Department of Transport Victoria.

“While facing the impacts of a global pandemic, we’ve made sure that the necessary decisions have been made to put the comfort, health and safety of everyone involved as our number one priority and ensure that our Global Summit remains the defining event in the sector,” the UITP said in a statement.

“With the support of our members, exhibitors, delegates and sponsors, we know that making the move to December gives us the time to build an ever better edition of the world’s biggest and best event dedicated to urban mobility.”

The event is hosted every two years, and the 2021 edition will be held under the theme “Mobility for Life.” It will take place at the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre.
