IRF Global Celebrates 76th Years: Paving the Way Towards Better Roads, Better World.

The International Road Federation (IRF Global) proudly celebrates its 76th anniversary, reflecting on a rich history of leadership and innovation in the road and transportation sector.
Seventy-six years ago, as the world began to rebuild from the devastation of World War II, a visionary group of road sector professionals established the International Road Federation (IRF Global) on May 5, 1948, in Washington, D.C., USA. Their mission was clear: to unite transportation leaders from across the globe to enhance and advocate for better roads everywhere.
Year after year, the IRF Global has remained at the forefront of innovation in road and transportation infrastructure. By hosting global congresses and pivotal meetings, the organization has sparked significant advancements and facilitated the transfer of vital technologies.



SHAPING THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORTATION

From bustling urban centers to secluded rural areas, the IRF Global’s influence can be seen in the modernization of road networks worldwide. Noteworthy initiatives like the IRF Global Road Achievement Awards have spotlighted exemplary projects and management practices, setting standards for others to follow and highlighting the sector’s crucial role in global development.

EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION OF ROAD SECTOR LEADERS

The IRF Global has also played a pivotal role in education through its renowned Fellowship Program, which has supported over 1,500 students from 115 countries. These scholars have pursued advanced studies in transportation-related fields, contributing to the sector’s growing knowledge base and expertise.

LOOKING FORWARD: THE IRF GLOBAL R2T CONFERENCE & EXHIBITION

As IRF Global celebrates this significant milestone, it continues its active agenda with a focus on advocacy for better roads and enhanced mobility globally. The pinnacle of this year’s celebrations will be the IRF Global R2T Conference & Exhibition, scheduled for December 10-13, 2024, in Orlando, FL.

Looking ahead, the IRF Global remains dedicated to fostering a world where roads are not just thoroughfares, but pathways to a safer, more inclusive future. We envision a tomorrow where roads unlock potential and connect not only places but also possibilities.

A CALL TO ACTION FOR SAFER AND SUSTAINABLE ROADS
