In just 8 days 250 representatives will be attending the 8th IRU European Bus and Coach Forum at Busworld Kortrijk, Belgium, the launch of the European Citizens Mobility Forum, the first Busworld Academy Seminar focusing on technical aspects of the bus and coach industry, and to meet the winners of the Smart Move 2013 Awards.


09 October 2013 - You won’t want to miss the 8th IRU European Bus and Coach Forum taking place in Kortrijk, Belgium on 17 October 2013, in the framework of the largest bus and coach exhibition in the world - Busworld Europe.


The topic of this year’s Forum is “European group tourism by coach: Driving seniors’ and out of season tourism”. The debate will be focusing on the current situation and existing market opportunities, as well as on discussing practical problems and solutions for bringing customers on board touring coaches, particularly during low season.


The Forum will also see the launch of the European Citizens Mobility Forum, which aims to ensure that the Smart Move High Level Group's recommendations are taken up and to develop additional initiatives to meet the objective of doubling the use of buses and coaches by 2025. 

The invitation-only Awards Ceremony for the winners of the IRU City Trophy Award 2013, IRU Bus Excellence Award 2013 and the IRU Coach Tourism Innovation Award 2013 will encourage, highlight and spread excellence within our sector and with decision-makers at all levels, demonstrating the commitment of the bus and coach industry and authorities to develop best practices that meet the increasing demand for sustainable, super-friendly and passenger focused mobility.

Forum participants will also have the opportunity to be the first to discover the most exciting Busworld novelties before its official opening, through an exclusive guided visit of the Busworld exhibition.


There will also be the inauguration of Busworld Academy – the new knowledge platform that acquires, bundles and shares bus and coach related knowledge to improve the information flow between all participants in the sector.


We look forward to seeing you all in Kortrijk!
