2020 Digital Event Statistics
WHY SMARTER MOBILITY AFRICA DIGITAL EVENT?
Smarter Mobility Africa aims to inspire and transform mobility across the continent. Despite the challenges experienced during the pandemic, smarter mobility has taken an unconventional journey by delivering a first-class digital event. A highly sought-after digital event that includes conversations around Walking & Cycling, Public Transport, Electric Vehicles, and Mobility As A Service.
We bring together thought leaders from business and government who aim to consolidate efforts to transition to electric and smarter mobility. This summit will shine a light on the solutions brought forward by these organisations to stimulate the future of mobility. In an effort to accelerate the adoption of smarter mobility solutions, the summit creates highly effective networking and match making opportunities to ensure that the most relevant stakeholders are connected.
We will deep dive into the latest technologies, policies, case studies, business models, and the impact thereof on health, happiness, the economy, and the environment to ensure that the right decisions can be made to unlock the full potential of our communities – whether village, town, city, country, or continent!
Walking & Cycling
With a high proportion of people in Africa walking, and some cycling to commute and get around, it’s important to discuss the benefits of walking and cycling, why we should be working to increase that mode of transport, but more importantly what needs to be improved to ensure that pedestrians are safe – what policy changes are needed, what infrastructure needs and investment are there, and what are the advocacy and perceptions to create a safer environment for walking and cycling.
Electric Vehicle Industry
Africa is taking back its power and dictating its own agenda for electric vehicle adoption. Within this session we look at an overview of the global perspective for EV adoption trends and narrow down to key adoption trends and challenges within the continent. With many challenges to tackle and huge opportunities to embrace, the tectonic shift in the automotive industry towards electric has created a once in a century opportunity to be at the forefront the value creation. Not to be missed hot-topic debates, panel discussions and engaging roundtables.
Formal and informal transport in Africa has taken a significant hit as a result of lockdowns and preventative measures. Whilst at the same time new solutions and innovations have been created to navigate the challenges and constant changes. We have an imperative conversation about how to tackle challenges and increase solutions around safety, cost, ease of access, equality, public health and the environment.
