Bonus at the STUVA Conference 2019: free admission to Hypermotion's Expo Area
This year Hypermotion is again under the patronage of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure and the State of Hesse. The results of the second Hypermotion in 2018 were already impressive: 2,545 participants from 20 countries, including 138 companies, 36 start-ups and 200 speakers. No wonder, then, that the organisers have set themselves a number of goals for this year as well. Developing the future of transport is a task that is rapidly gaining in importance. And so Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt, is also looking forward to a new edition of Hypermotion in 2019: "The turnaround in traffic and mobility is a necessary task in which many people, companies, parties and interest groups must pull together - and if possible in the same direction. Hypermotion offers the ideal framework for this," says Detlef Braun.
In people's perception, mobility is an important indicator of personal freedom. Logistics creates growth and prosperity for companies and society. In times of digitalization and decarbonization, logistics and mobility must be available and reliable at all times. And the transport system of the future must be intelligent - that means networked, integrated, digital, secure, multimodal and affordable. To achieve this, traditional system boundaries between logistics, mobility, infrastructure, traffic and transport must be overcome. Communities that were previously focused on modes of transport and sectors in independent events and trade fairs must be merged, partly modernised and revitalised. The central starting point for hypermotion is therefore the already recognised concept of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), which is to be further developed from the point of view of digitisation. Hypermotion sees itself as the first independent platform for the digital transformation of transport, mobility and logistics. The seven interconnected subject areas Connectivity, Monitoring & Transparency, Data Analytics & Security, Hypermodality, Sustainability, Synchronized & urban Logistics and Smart & digital Regions link the core elements of the current and future transport system.
In 2019, too, the spectrum of participants will range from established companies from the fields of transport, mobility, infrastructure and logistics to start-ups, entrepreneurs and representatives of associations, municipalities and universities who will present their forward-looking projects. The interactive format with its wide range of conferences, start-up pitches, expert talks and speed networking was extremely well received by the participants: 91 percent were very satisfied with the event last year.
