Altro Lead User Forum

02 July 2021


On June 9th 2021, Altro Transport held a Lead User Forum workshop with key figures in the European bus and rail industry to discuss potential trends and developments over the next five-year period.

Attendees included representatives from Transport for London, Neomind, Pelican Bus and Coach and Kiel, as well as Camira Fabrics and Bus Users. This well rounded group of individuals represented a broad range of viewpoints across the continent, making for varied contributions.

Discussion centred around trends and challenges over the next five years, particularly COVID recovery, and what implications this would have on transport interiors as well as relevant technologies that will have an impact.

We would like to thank all our attendees for their time and input, and we look forward to being a part of new developments and ideas in the transport industry. Altro regularly run workshops and other opportunities to hear our customers’ and collaborators’ thoughts, so if you’d like to get involved, please contact us.
