Rethinking Mobility and Logistics

HYM21_MEM_Online Editorial 1_FMP

Ongoing trends such as urbanisation and our rapidly changing climate represent major challenges for society today and demand new approaches to traffic and transport. There will need to be dialogue across all modes of transport.

 Hypermotion Frankfurt will be a platform for just that from 14 to 16 September 2021 – in person on the exhibition grounds and digitally online. As a multimodal innovation platform, Hypermotion brings together players from the automotive, transport and logistics industries to discuss new business models for mobility and logistics. The concept features a conventional exhibition that shares many characteristics with a conference. The trade fair is supplemented by tech talks, panel discussions and start-up pitches. The event is aimed not only at major companies and policymakers, but also at SMEs, entrepreneurs and investors.

In the Hypermotion Lab, panel discussions at the interface between mobility and logistics call for thinking outside of the box. Plans are also underway for three conferences featuring an outstanding roster of speakers. The smc – Smart Mobility + Green Cities Conference serves as a future forum for multimodal concepts and sustainable mobility in networked cities and regions. At the scalex – Supply Chain + Logistics Excellence Conference, the focus is on the topics of resilience, innovation and performance. On 16 September 2021, the Hyperloop Conference will take place for the very first time. This conference brings international players in the hyperloop ecosystem together to discuss the latest developments in this revolutionary technology.

Synergies with Automechanika Frankfurt

Hypermotion is being held alongside Automechanika Frankfurt. This offers promising overlaps because at Automechanika Frankfurt, everything revolves around the automotive service industry. Developers from the fields of mobility and logistics will be brought together with users from the automotive aftermarket. This creates valuable synergies for participants of both events for topics such as alternative drive systems, fleet management, IoT systems and the creation and optimisation of resilient international supply chains, to name but a few. Not only can participants in both of these trade fairs share their thoughts and ideas in the joint conference programme, but they will also come into contact at the Future Mobility Park. The experience circuit is where new solutions such as autonomous vehicles, micromobility, cargo bikes and charging stations can be exhibited and tested up close and in person.

To ensure that all interested parties have an opportunity to take part, Hypermotion Frankfurt 2021 will be a hybrid event: the exhibition and conferences will be taking place in person in Frankfurt in accordance with an extensive protection and hygiene concept to ensure a safe event for everyone involved. These live events on the exhibition grounds will be supplemented by digital features and made available for online participants. Exhibitors present their products in their own profiles, the supporting programme is streamed live, people can communicate via chat and video, and digital matchmaking generates contact recommendations tailored to each participant.

Hypermotion Frankfurt is taking place from 14 to 16 September 2021.
