BOOKIT Conference 2015
In September we had our annual BOOKIT Conference. This year we were based in Stenungsund, the home town of Hogia.

We are thrilled that most of clients and partners took time out from their busy schedules to attend.

We spent three days together and had the opportunity to listen to many interesting presentations by our clients and partners. We also had the chance to enjoy a wonderful meal at Restaurang Vatten.

Next year's conference is already being discussed and we are happy to inform you that the BOOKIT Conference 2016 will take place in London, England.

Hogia used by Norwegian ferry services
16 000 passengers at 39 terminals around the Norwegian county of More and Romsdal receive their daily travel information via Hogia's product TIMS.  Digital signs at every ferry terminal show real time information about departure and arrival times, as well as updates on any disruptions from schedule.
This real time passenger information for ferries and high-speed services is the first of its kind in Norway. Arild Fuglseth, Director of public transport in More and Romsdal said, “Our passengers have asked for improved information for the ferries, and we are very happy to be able to fulfil that request. We hope this will make their daily lives a little easier and more convenient”.

Hogia is today the biggest provider of public transport systems in the Nordic countries providing information to 8 out of 10 passengers using public transport services.
Hogia 35 years!
In September Hogia turned 35 and everyone working within the Hogia group was invited to an anniversary party. The venue was Eriksbergshallen in Gothenburg. Approx. 800 people attended the party and oh what a celebration it was!

Hogia's founder and CEO of the company, Bert-Inge Hogsved and his wife Åse, made sure we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with a three course dinner followed by a spectacular show with live music and dancers. This was a party we will never forget!
