Commercial Partners add their weight to ITT Hub 2020
Lloyds Banking Group, National Grid Electricity Transmission and international energy and services company Centrica, have added their weight to ITT Hub 2020, the new business event for the transport and technology sector.
Each company has a strategic objective to work closely in the transport sector and, as a Commercial Partner at ITT Hub 2020, they will receive extensive brand exposure over the next 12 months. Individually and collectively, all three Partners will further add to the growing profile of the newly launched event, which will include thought leadership and business networking activities.
Mark Griffin, CEO of Binswood Media, the organiser of ITT Hub 2020, said; “All three Commercial Partners share our view that transport is changing rapidly. We are delighted that, by working together, we can provide our visitors, exhibitors and industry stakeholders with an injection of fresh innovation through thought leadership and shared goals. Each Partner has their own individual role to play in shaping the future of mobility and we are proud that ITT Hub 2020 has been recognised as an event which they want to partner with to achieve this”.
What our Commercial Partners say about ITT Hub 2020
Carl Bayliss, Vice President of Mobility, Centrica Innovations
"As the UK’s largest energy supplier and operator of one of the largest fleets in the country, we know better than most the challenges facing the energy and transport sector as we look towards a low carbon future.
“We believe that meaningful partnerships will be key to unlocking the electrification of vehicles in the UK and beyond, and look forward to driving forward opportunities to develop thought leadership, innovation and collaboration in this space.”
James Courtenay-Evans, Head of Transport, Large Corporates, LBG
"The Binswood Media team clearly have a passion for providing the transport market with something new, ground-breaking and sustainable. It is a fantastic opportunity for LBG and a number of its key brands to further strengthen our position in the sector.
“Given our unique position at the heart of the UK economy and our purpose to Help Britain Prosper, the successful transition to a more sustainable, lower carbon economy is of strategic importance to us. We really do look forward to playing our part to help build and grow this event, which is much needed in the road transport arena."
Graeme Cooper, Project Director of Electric Vehicles , NGET
“National Grid Electricity Transmission is excited to be an ITT Hub 2020 event Commercial Partner. With the road transport space being vitally important to the UK economy, we are actively engaging with many stakeholders to accelerate the decarbonisation of transport (as well as heat).
“The rollout of electric vehicles is fundamental to achieving this, and National Grid Electricity Transmission’s proposal to provide an upgraded electricity network connection at 54 motorway service areas would allow 99% of drivers in England and Wales to be within 50 miles of an ultra-rapid charging hub – one which would allow them to achieve a 200 mile charge in the time taken to buy and drink a coffee. This would complement home, workplace and destination charging (such as retail sites and leisure facilities) and provide a solution for those unable to charge their vehicles at home, including drivers on the move, plus fleet and bus operators looking to maximise vehicle utilisation.”
