The IRU World Congress 2020 comes to Berlin, a symbolic city bridging the East and West with a long tradition in overland transport and a trade crossroads at the heart of Europe.
A renowned hub for transport, technology, politics and media and a key centre for debate on climate and energy, Berlin is a well-connected and easy-to-reach destination, with direct transport links from major cities in Europe and worldwide.
Being one of the strongest European economies and set to assume the Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2020, Germany represents an ideal location to shape the future of transport, mobility, trade and logistics.
"The IRU World Congress is coming to Berlin in 2020 and it is an honour for me to be the patron for THE international road transport industry event.
It offers the perfect opportunity for the road transport industry to come together with governments and international organisations from all over the world to further progress these important issues. Our capital city Berlin is an international centre for logistics and creativity and thus the best place for this meeting. I look forward to welcoming you to Germany in 2020!"
