Transport Research Arena (TRA) Conference 2024

Project Overview

Creative Technology Ireland partnered with Conference Partners International to deliver the comprehensive Audio-Visual production and opening event content for the 10th annual Transport Research Arena (TRA) conference.

From April 15th to 18th, thousands of visitors were welcomed into the RDS for TRA 2024, all eager to explore Ireland’s growing potential as a hub for transport innovation and design, celebrating both contemporary breakthroughs and historical milestones.

With the theme of “Transport Transitions: Advancing Sustainable and Inclusive Mobility,” the conference featured a diverse line-up of speakers, including Transport Minister Eamon Ryan and Minister of State Jack Chambers.


Client Requirements.

Conference Partners International needed an Audio-Visual provider that could execute a seamless technical production within the RDS, using the latest cutting-edge AV technology. Alongside this, they also required an experienced Creative Content Studio with a track record in curating engaging video content to mark the opening of this year’s event.

With over a decade of experience as the trusted Audio-Visual supplier for the RDS, our Live Events team brings an unmatched level of expertise in delivering an immense range of successful events and especially large exhibitions with the event spaces.  

Paired with our in-house Creative Content Studio, who boast over 15 years of experience in producing engaging video content for various applications, Creative Technology Ireland was in the unique position to exceed the expectations of Conference Partners International, and the Transport Research Arena (TRA).
