Hypermotion Dubai - Smart Mobility Conference

smc: Smart Mobility Conference

Reducing congestion and fostering faster, greener and cheaper transport options.

Smart Mobility will bring together the leading stakeholders from mass transit, smart mobility and urban planning companies to discuss and reveal what the future holds for the Middle East and Africa.

The unrestricted movement of goods and services, and the flexibility and integration of different modes of transportation is integral to the long-term success of our cities. However, congestion, aging infrastructure and rapid urbanization are intensifying the need for radical mobility solutions.

The content will focus on the future of urban mobility and outline what specifically needs to be done now to ensure cities are positioned to beat the challenges of the future.

Key themes to be covered, include:

  • Forecasting the disruptive trends that will have a transformative impact on the mobility landscape
  • What will the region’s roads look like in 2050?
  • Electric vehicle charging infrastructure: best-in-class case studies on successful international roll-outs
  • Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) market projections for the MENA region over the next decade
