BUS2BUS Special Edition 2021

Interactive, innovative, sustainable & digital

The BUS2BUS Special Edition stands for synergy and is an initiator for the bus industry. On 15th April 2021 it will combine personal dialog, modern technology and resource-saving concepts.


The BUS2BUS Special Edition program features a digital industry meeting and the International busplaner Sustainability Award. The Special Edition provides an interactive online platform for a dynamic exchange of ideas and concepts on the future of the bus sector industry.

We believe in progress through personal dialog

Whenever material goods are exchanged they retain their physical form, whereas when ideas pass through several minds they undergo a magical change: they grow and become transformed. The focus of the digital industry meeting is on a personal exchange between policymakers, business, science and the media. Following a welcome address by Messe Berlin and the bdo, a joint debate will take place on ’buses as a flexible and sustainable alternative to the mobility options of the future’. The event will be held in German. Interpreting into English will be available. Additional information on how to register and a list of speakers will follow soon.
