Smarter Tomorrow is Europe’s regular meeting place for the integrated transport and intelligent mobility community. 

Smarter Tomorrow is hosted by Merseytravel and Liverpool City Region, both key developers of the smart physical and digital infrastructure that is driving positive change across the devolved, and increasingly dynamic, North of England. 

Plenary Last Year

In 2018, the event was hosted and sponsored by Merseytravel and Liverpool City Region and brought significant profile to the region. Event feedback notes a particular interest in an event that showcased the achievements and aspirations of Liverpool, a powerful but relatively low-profiled city until recent years:

"Liverpool was a fantastic location and it's encouraging to see how much is happening in the region. Good local authority involvement and the politicians helped massively"

Daniel Bimpson, Jacobs

"It was great to have the event in the North of England and to have a number of speakers relevant to the North. Also, the venue was much better than Milton Keynes, and much more accessible"

Paul Marriott, Cumbria County Council


The event must stay in Liverpool. It was a great venue / location and there was good support from the local organisations

Jennie Martin, ITS UK


"Steve Rotheram, Mick Noone and Barry White [from Liverpool City Region] were the best speakers. "

Eddie Hewitt, Slough Borough Council 


Smarter Tomorrow initiatives, especially at the local and regional scale, remain the cornerstone of the mobility revolution. 
Over the two days, we will explore how all sectors of society are responding to these changes, and will outline the next steps for local and regional authorities, operators, entrepreneurs, academia and communities.



'I am looking forward to welcoming Smarter Tomorrow back to the Liverpool City Region this October following last year's hugely successful event.
'It is fitting that Europe’s main gathering of professionals working to design and deliver smarter public transport systems meet in a city region with the ambition to improve connectivity, drive growth and deliver a fully integrated 21st century system. 
'This creative community is a perfect match for our innovation ambitions, and I am delighted welcome back the speakers, delegates and exhibitors from our dynamic city region as we plan for a future that supports better, healthier and more efficient mobility choices'

Steve Rotheram, Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor
