Throughout their existence, Busworld and the Busworld Academy have been a focal point for people who want to find all kinds of information on the many aspects of the bus and coach industry. Using our worldwide network of exhibitors, operators, academics, journalists, engineers and other contacts, we have always been able to point people in the right direction.
The Busworld Academy has three main objectives, mainly to acquire, bundle and share bus and coach related knowledge about all aspects of the industry, including technological developments to enhance sustainable mobility, legislation, markets and more specialised topics, such as coach tourism. These topics can be categorised in three main fields: Safety, Sustainability and Comfort.
...means that we will look for all existing knowledge, studies, projects and proposals. A lot of research is being done, but some of it is not communicated well enough. On top of this, we need to motivate schools, colleges and universities to undertake new research with suitable qualified partners, especially when there is need for extra knowledge in a certain area.
...means making all this information, both existing and new, “findable” or retrievable.
...means making this knowledge available for other parties to support bus and coach development worldwide through the Busworld communication channels and through the participation of Busworld Academy Expert Members in seminars, congresses and other events where the right knowledge can and will make the difference.
...in the Busworld Academy will be organised in four main categories:
Born in 1971 within BAAV, the Flemish Federation for Bus and Coach Entrepreneurs, the Busworld Exhibitions have become the leading trade fairs for the Bus & coach industry, worldwide. In 2013, the Busworld Academy was added to the concept, resulting in unique congresses, seminars and conferences gathering all stakeholders to share insights, discuss visions and create exceptional network opportunities. Since the manufacturers, suppliers and -operators were already present at the trade fair, the Academy completed this group with authorities, knowledge institutes and new stakeholders, regarding evolutions and trends such as zero emission mobility, digitalization, and the adapted business models and present & future market analysis.
Our doors are open to everybody, and we kindly invite you all to collaborate on the input of our seminars and congresses. Mobility matters to us all.
I look forward to meet you.
Stefan Meersseman, President Busworld Academy
