The hybrid event will bring together thought leaders and policy makers from the global mobility and smart city community in the city of Copenhagen for the next two years.
Electronomous, the organisation behind Electronomous – The International Mobility Summit, an event that brings together global industry leaders, disruptors, innovators, public and private entities to collaborate on the next generation of mobility opportunities, has selected Copenhagen as host city for its summit in 2021 and 2022. Electronomous also announced, the call for speakers and abstracts for the summit is open and now accepting submissions.
Marking its fifth year, the summit will take place from 20 – 24 September 2021 and will feature a hybrid format consisting of five virtual days and a one-day physical event in the city of Copenhagen. The conference covers eight tracks including: automation, clean and sustainable transport, the European Year of rail 2021, micro-mobility, electro-mobility, urban logistics, Mobility as a Service (MaaS), smart cities, connectivity and data sharing. The event will include a mix of keynote speakers, panel discussions, fireside chats and close-door discussions in Copenhagen. There will also be a number of bilateral meetings, match-making events and workshops. Electronomous is working closely with Copenhagen CVB and its innovative Copenhagen Legacy Lab initiative on ways to ensure the summit has a lasting impact on the city.
Lars Weiss, Lord Mayor of the City of Copenhagen said: “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.”
Mikkel Aarø-Hansen, CEO of Wonderful Copenhagen - the official tourism & convention organisation for the Capital Region of Denmark - added: "We are especially proud to welcome Electronomous – The International Mobility Summit to our great city in both 2021 and 2022. Electronomous and Copenhagen are a perfect match. Our destination is not only one of the most popular convention cities in the world, but also a frontrunner within staging sustainable events and creating legacy programmes, and a city that offers substantial expertise and experience in hosting high profile events."
Keith Whelan, Event Director of Electronomous commented on the announcement: “It is our mission to bring policy makers, thought leaders and industries together to help to create more liveable cities, future mobility and sustainable transport. 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.”
Safety protocols for the event are aligned with the Danish Health Authorities standards to ensure the health and wellbeing of attendees during the event in Copenhagen. The physical portion of the event will be limited to just 500 delegates, and those wishing to attend can pre-book their spot on Electronomous.com.
