Introduction

Following the massive success of the first four “Infrastructure and Transport” Conferences, both of which were attended by more than 4.000 attendees, ypodomes.com and metaforespress.gr are proudly announcing the ITC 2022-5th Infrastructure and Transport Conference in Athens.

The upcoming event will take place on May 30th (web only) and 31st May and 1st of June At MEGARON, Athens International Conference Center, Banquet Hall, one of the most prestigious venues in Athens with a capacity of 700 attendees.

This year`s title “Empowering networks” is reflecting our goal to communicate new ideas, technologies, even philosophical questions about the next few years and the changes they bring in everything: how to fund new projects, operate companies and investigate the future for opportunities.

The goal for the ITC 2022-5th Infrastructure and Transport Conference, is to be the most successful ever, targeting the recent developments of those two crucial sectors of the Greek economy, giving the floor to top speakers who are going to give us not only information about the present but also a glimpse of the future.

The first day will be web-only with four panels concerning topics that play a crucial role for the development of the two sectors. On the same day in the evening  it will take place the Opening Gala, at Zappeion.

The second day is dedicated to Infrastructure and the third day to Transport Industries. There will be more than 40 speakers in many plenary sessions, with discussion, presentations, information etc.

On both days we will give awards for the Infrastructure Project (2nd day) and the Transport Company (3rd day) of 2021. They winners will be both awarded for their achievements over the past year.

For those who cannot be with, they will be able to watch the whole conference through our YouTube channel.

Also, as of this year, the ITC 2022 has its own app, through which, our attendees will be able to register, to see the agenda, the speakers, and to organize their B2B meetings. This innovation will make ITC 2022 even more interactive and the networking between our attendees will be even more easy.
