Promotion & media

The IRU World Congress has addressed a range of challenges and opportunities in transport, mobility and trade. Leaders from industry and government joined the debate.

IRU’s media and communications teams are working closely with Asyad and partners on media and social media outreach across multiple platforms, including broadcast, live streaming and video, print media and online engagement. This will happen before, during and after the Congress, to broaden our audience and to project the event onto the world stage.
