The following keynote speeches then shone a light on the evolving mobility landscape from different angles:

These technologies are already transforming the way we see, understand and get around cities. Greg Lindsay, an internationally known futurist and urbanist, took a trip through the smart city as it will look in 2032 and explained how to get ready to do business in it.
• The truck of the future with Volta Trucks: from autonomous platooning to alternative fuels and everything in between, technology is changing the trucking sector. The team from Volta Trucks, a cutting-edge manufacturer, revealed their innovative new electric commercial vehicles and explained how they differ radically from the traditional urban delivery vehicle.
• Partnerships: The key that can unlock the full potential of mobility solutions: experts from Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services, project44 and EasyPark discussed how data interconnectivity and integrations between Software-as-a-Service mobility providers will unlock the true, full potential of mobility across the coming decade and what it means for commercial fleets and suppliers.
The one-day virtual conference was free of charge and held simultaneously in 21 countries globally.Alongside the international presentations, local experts tackled various mobility themes in more than 50 sessions including roundtable discussions, interviews and best-practice presentations.
