Mobility and logistics in a new format
From November 20 until 22, 2017, the Hypermotion in Frankfurt reflects the challenges of digitisation and decarbonisation which have lots of consequences for the branch today and in future. Know-how transfer and discussion will be in focus.
That is the background: The boundaries between logistics, mobility, infrastructure and transport are slowly disappearing, and new, networked, integrated and multimodal systems and solutions are taking their place.
In order to reflect these changes and foster discussion of their impact on the economy and society, Messe Frankfurt has launched Hypermotion. With this move, Messe Frankfurt’s Mobility & Logistics business division has bridged a gap in the German and international trade fair market, for this is the first independent platform focusing on the overarching theme of digital transformation in the transport sector.
Motto “Next Generation Mobility”
Under the motto “Next Generation Mobility”, Hypermotion will bring together the next generation of software, hardware and UX specialists that hope to take the market by storm with their innovative concepts. Developers, designers and strategists will be able to tackle real challenges at the hackathon, experiment with cutting-edge technology and put their skills to the test in a competition for attractive prizes. Start-up pitches offer entrepreneurs and visionaries the perfect stage on which to present their disruptive ideas to a panel of respected experts, while informative and entertaining talks will be a source of additional ideas and inspiration.
Numerous start-ups have developed new digital business models that they will be presenting at Hypermotion. Exhibitors at Hypermotion include established firms from the transport and logistics industry, small and medium-sized enterprises, start-ups, mobility pioneers and entrepreneurs.
Digitisation, ITS and intermodality
The exhibition area of Hypermotion is not the only place where smart networking will be the focus, for the accompanying conference series on the topics of digitisation, ITS (intelligent transport systems) and intermodality will see more than 150 respected speakers and partners promoting networking and the exchange of knowledge.
