The International Cities for Mobility Congress is the most important event of the network. The 9th edition will take place on 17-19 June 2018 at Stuttgart City Hall. It is addressed to municipal practitioners, decision makers, researchers, entrepreneurs and initiatives from civil society and combines presentations with practical activities, such as trainings, interactive workshops, excursions and contact forums.
New mobility and the transformation of our cities
Over 250 decision makers, professionals, entrepreneurs and scientists from over 30 countries world-wide will meet in June at the 9th International Cities for Mobility Congress. The event will focus on mobility trends and their influence on creating liveable urban spaces in cities, tackling especially the importance of mobility experiments with visible and concrete interventions for the benefit of citizens as well as a careful design and use of public space that prioritizes sustainable modes of transport. Further topics that will be discussed at the congress are new concepts for the development of public transport services (e.g. on-demand mobility), innovative measures for city logistics and the expansion of shared transport (car/bike sharing, pooling, ride sharing).
The Cities for Mobility Congress has a very practical focus as we know that the added value for our participants lies in the concrete experiences and lessons learnt they can share between each other. The event is organized by the Mobility Department of the Municipality of Stuttgart which puts a strong emphasis on innovative city showcases and practical benefits for participants. Beside studies and theoretical background, the Mobility Department of Stuttgart pays much attention to identify topics, which are relevant to local and regional governments and have a real impact on transport in the city.
Special characteristics of the event are the diversity of stakeholders and the variety of topics, which range from the promotion of cycling, walking and public transport to traffic management and electric mobility. The manageable size of participants (which facilitates networking), the special atmosphere in a central location of the city and the international audience, are the main reasons for the attractiveness of the event. Participants use the platform for branding their organizations and projects. The framework program offers several opportunities for building new contacts and cooperation initiatives.
