Hanover’s micromobility expo is gearing up for its return on the 27-19 May 2021 as a three-day hybrid event.
Simona Erdmann, Project Manager said: “Mobility in our cities will change even faster and more strongly – also due to the pandemic. Visitors to the micromobility expo will be able to experience this future, test it and discuss it at our conference. This is the traffic turnaround you can touch.”
The third edition of the micromobility expo will be a combination of exhibition, test course and conference program that can also be followed digitally. Companies can choose whether they want to present themselves and their products on the exhibition grounds or in a virtual space.
In addition, the conference is completely streamed meaning that visitors can experience the micromobility expo under the Expo roof or watch it live online. Exchanges and networking with other guests will also be possible digitally. “In this way, micromobility expo is prepared for all eventualities with a view to the development of the pandemic,” said Erdmann.
“We rely on the concept of a combined trade visitor and consumer event,” said Erdmann. The first two days of the event on May 27 and 28, 2021 are reserved for trade visitors; the micromobility expo opens to the public on Saturday. As at its premiere in May 2019, the event will be held under the wooden Expo roof on the exhibition grounds and the exhibition pavilions. “The traffic turnaround can only succeed as a team. That is why we bring industry, politics, science and users together on the micromobility expo platform, ”explained Erdmann.
At the premiere of the micromobility expo in May 2019, around 3,000 visitors got an idea of the latest solutions, applications, and trends in micromobility. At that time, the approval of small electric scooters on German roads had just come into force. In 2020, in view of the pandemic, the event was organized to be purely digitally.
“We pick up the ball and continue to discuss the solutions, opportunities and potential for future mobility, urban logistics, urban-space development, multimodality and intermodality, safety & security and free agers,” said Erdmann. A hygiene concept will apply to the event on the exhibition grounds, which corresponds to the then applicable requirements and has been coordinated with the responsible authorities. The health of the visitors has the highest priority, said Erdmann.
The partners of the premiere event, such as the metropolitan region of Hanover Braunschweig Göttingen Wolfsburg, will continue to be part of the new edition in 2021. As in previous years, the patron of the event is Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer. The Berlin Institute for Future Studies and Technology Assessment (IZT) will also be represented.
Tickets for the micromobility expo will be available from February onwards on the micromobilityexpo.de website. The permanent ticket costs 50 euros, the trade visitor ticket 30 euros and the ticket for Saturday 6 euros.
