About the Summit

The International Road Federation (IRF) announces the conduct of the IRF Young Professionals Summit 2021 on September 29 with the theme, “Towards a Greener and Safer Mobility”

The summit takes on the pressing challenges in the road and mobility sectors and will serve as a venue for knowledge sharing of young professionals all over the world on four key areas namely, Sustainable Mobility, Safe Road Systems, Mobilising Mobility, and Resilient Mobility. The summit will be done virtually similar to last year’s installment and will also include networking sessions among members of the IRF Young Professionals Programme, partners, and guests. All Young professionals in the road transport and mobility sectors are invited to join the activity.

Sponsorship Opportunities

As the world continues to face the obstacles built by the Covid-19 pandemic halting large international events and gatherings, the IRF continues to ensure that the need for networking, knowledge sharing, and advocating of future leaders of road transport and mobility sectors are supported. 

The IRF Young Professionals Team also welcomes sponsors to make this event more vibrant and gives them the opportunity to reach out to hard-working and passionate young professionals in the industry. To know how they can get involved, please contact us at info@irfnet.ch.
