The city of Copenhagen will be the host of the International Mobility Summit for the next two years. The summit is a hybrid event attended by thought leaders, innovators, and policymakers in the global mobility and smart-city industries.
About the Summit
The International Mobility Summit is run by Electronomous, an organization that brings together public and private stakeholders to create opportunities and chart the way forward in the mobility industry. Electronomous is also now asking for submissions from people who wish to speak at the event.
The summit will be held in a hybrid virtual and physical structure. Five days of the event will be conducted remotely while there will be a physical meet-up for one day in Copenhagen. The conference will have eight tracks, namely electro-mobility, micro-mobility, clean and sustainable transport, automation, the 2021 European year of rail, urban logistics, connectivity and data sharing, smart cities, and mobility as a service (MaaS). It will further consist of workshops, bilateral meetings, keynote speeches, panel discussions, fireside chats, and closed-door discussions.
Electronomous has partnered with Copenhagen Legacy Lab, an initiative by the Copenhagen Convention Bureau to integrate international congresses with local business and science communities.
Partnership with the City of Copenhagen
Lord Mayor of Copenhagen, Lars Weiss, spoke about the resourcefulness of the city: “As the capital city of one of the world’s leading countries within the field of mobility and sustainability, Copenhagen is an ideal location for this event. We are sure that all delegates, whether attending virtually or physically, will have an unforgettable summit experience and take home many memories from our vibrant metropolis.”
Copenhagen Convention Bureau CEO Mikkel Aarø-Hansen added that the partnership between Electronomous and Copenhagen was strategic as “Copenhagen is one of the world’s most popular convention cities and offers proven expertise and experience in hosting high-profile events. It is also a frontrunner in staging sustainable events and creating legacy programs.”
Electronomous’ event director Keith Whelan also described the organization’s resolve towards enabling future mobility: “It is our mission to bring policymakers, thought leaders, and industries together to help to create more livable cities, future mobility, and sustainable transport.”
Whelan explained that “choosing Copenhagen as the home for our event was a strategic decision by our team as the buzzing capital is not only a beautiful city but with their CPH 2025 Climate Plan, they plan to be the first capital city in the world to be carbon neutral by 2025. So, naturally, it was a perfect fit.”
