Hypermotion with a "perfect mixture"



The result of an appropriate combination of exhibition, tech talks and conference: The first Hypermotion from 20 to 22 November 2017 in Frankfurt highlighted the discussion of digital, networked and emission-free mobility and logistics solutions.

At the Hypermotion in Frankfurt, 2,200 participants joined the forums.

In addition to the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) and partners, more than 100 participating companies offered a look at the possibilities for the transport and traffic systems of tomorrow. Approx. 2,200 participants came to Frankfurt over the course of the three-day event.

Rainer Bomba, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, visited Hypermotion on two different days: “Mobility today is much different than it was ten years ago. If we are going to take advantage of the opportunities offered by new digital technologies while also satisfying the demand for the more efficient use of resources, it is absolutely essential that we view mobility and logistics as two sides of the same coin. It is impossible to address one without the other. With its events and programmes, Hypermotion exemplifies the networking and integration of manufacturers, associations and government, tech firms big and small, start-ups, researchers and visionaries that is so essential here.”

The “Mobility inside” platform was presented by Oliver Wolff, Managing Director of the Association of German Transport Companies (VDV). The goal is to achieve the national networking of the various prices, tickets and schedule information in local and long-distance public transport so that passengers can obtain electronic tickets via app that allow them to travel throughout Germany with a single registration. The technical requirements have already been put in place – a network-wide system with multi-client capability.

The next Hypermotion will take place from 20 to 22 November 2018.
