The International Summit of Rome will focus on long-term strategic planning and how to put the customer first. There are many challenges that the toll industry has to face worldwide: efficiencies in maintaining existing assets, security in times of global unrest (with particular attention to bridges and tunnels) and the de-carbonization of transport for improved mobility and quality of life for our customers. Infrastructure operators will present their plans to respond to these challenges in an ever-changing world with increased urbanization, unstable economies and an accelerating trend of “consuming mobility.” Executives are encouraged to attend this meeting to get a broad sense of new thinking that is currently being implemented or is part of future strategic planning.

9:00am – 2:00pmExhibitor Set-up
3:00pm – 6:00pmRegistration
5:00pm – 6:30pmReception with Exhibitors
7:00am – 5:00pmRegistration
7:00am – 8:30amBreakfast in the restaurant (for those staying in the hotel)
8:30am – 9:00amOpening Remarks
9:00am – 10:30amThe Italian Motorway System The Italian Motorway System is a complex, interconnected and vital highway network. The characteristics of our system, due to the geographical diversity, the regulatory context and the number of involved stakeholders, require specific solutions and tailored procedures to manage daily operations and to plan the investments aimed at keeping the high level of effectiveness and safety for our users. This discussion will describe how all the 28 Italian Concessionaires work together to overcome this complex system to guarantee and maintain the efficiency of a multifaceted road system, with a specific focus on best practices at border crossing and solutions for interoperability.
10:30am – 11:00amRefreshment Break with Exhibits
11:00am – 12:30pmMajor Trends from Around the WorldAround the world, policymakers must face mobility needs and demand. Their priorities are to find efficient mobility solutions for surface transportation. In this session, transportation leaders from around the world (Transportation Secretaries, Local Authorities Representatives, Major Transportation Providers, Toll Agencies, etc.) will present plans and ideas implemented as well as major trends (social, economic, political, demographic, etc.) occurring in their country or region that directly impact transportation and mobility worldwide.
12:30pm – 2:00pmLunch/Coffee with Exhibits
2:00pm – 3:30pmOptimizing the Next Generation of MobilityMobility is the true goal of our transportation system and network. This session will examine the many aspects of mobility and how we need to integrate and optimize various transportation infrastructure, modes and systems. Topics such as congestion management strategies, Mobility as a Service (Maas), integrating toll, transit, and parking and optimizing infrastructure assets can all help us understand the next generation of mobility. New disruptive tools and models emerging in transportation and information and communication technology create opportunities to better understand and leverage the interactions between customers, vehicles, and the infrastructure to optimize the global mobility. Send us the solutions and ideas that you think are taking precedence around the world.
3:30pm – 4:00pmDessert and Coffee with Exhibits
4:00pm – 5:30pm Safety/Incident ManagementToll roads, bridges, and tunnels have proven to be safe, well maintained, and provide the traveling public with a positive experience. To ensure positive operational results, many toll agencies and toll facility operators have safety goals, maintenance programs to enhance safety, and incident response programs. To assist toll agency administrations and political entities in the development of safety policies for infrastructure, inspection and maintenance activities management and incident management and response should utilize high quality operations and safety plans with high levels of performance. The objective of this session is to share experience for public safety and incident management and response from across the world and across different kinds of assets such as bridges, roads, and tunnels. This session will also show innovative ways to improve safety that have been developed. Send us your presentation ideas for related topics such as:
6:30pm – 9:00pmOff-site Evening Networking Event
7:00am – 4:00pmRegistration
7:30am – 9:00amBreakfast in the hotel (for guests of the hotel)
9:00am – 10:30amAdapting Emerging Technologies (Solutions) Innovation and research in the tolling industry involve technical and experimental steps towards providing new devices and ware, validation of implementation processes, functional tests and durability tests on the components and products currently under development. Our industry is committed to a process of continuous innovation of its services and operating procedures, working hard to offer customers an even more innovative experience by investing in technological solutions that make the most efficient travel, sustainable and fast. Send your presentation ideas that address topics such as:
11:00am – 12:30pmResponding to the Environmental Challenges The consequences of climate change are becoming more and more evident. They affect all types of transport modes and impact on our operations as well as on users. Action is therefore needed to develop mitigation and adaptation measures to minimize the magnitude and impacts of climate change. Mitigation measures and innovative solutions are needed to minimize greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) mainly caused from vehicles and trucks (improvements in vehicles efficiency, low emission vehicles, management of transport activity) and to reduce the impact of infrastructure on the environment (air pollution, health and noise) both in cities and on our highway systems. Adaptation measures need to be implemented to reduce vulnerability of the infrastructure to extreme weather events to increase resilience and robustness for continuous safety and mobility. The aim of the session is therefore to highlight the international experience by presenting success stories and best practices to be shared and promoted among the participants.
12:30pm – 2:00pmLunch/Coffee with Exhibits
2:00pm – 3:30pmCyber & Physical Security A new challenge in the modern world! Traditional security practices to mitigate risks of disruption to critical transport infrastructure are continually evolving to meet the significant risks posed by today’s dynamic threat environment. This evolution presents extremely complex challenges for the tolling industry. These challenges become more pronounced when considering factors such as the cascading effects and interconnection of cyber threats and physical incidents on the infrastructure network; the need to modify systems and processes to comply with new standards and regulations; identifying appropriate security breach responses; and implementing the right risk mitigation measures within prevailing resourcing and budget constraints. This session will identify lessons learned, trends and best practice all around the world in adapting technologies, processes and practices to protect staff, customers, facilities, data and revenue.
