Hanover. micromobility expo 2022 not only showcases products and concrete solutions for micromobility in urban areas, with its comprehensive conference program it is also the central platform for knowledge transfer and exchange of experience. The call for speakers for the conference program has now begun. Topics and presentations can be submitted to the organizer until 7.11.2021. A jury of experts will decide which speakers will take to the stage in Hannover from May 19 to 21, 2022.

The current political and social discussions about the challenges of tomorrow's mobility raise questions - micromobility expo provides answers and brings together industry, politics, science and users. The event's formats are as diverse as the interested parties and users: The three-day conference offers a mix of lectures, panel discussions, project presentations and opportunities to try out the latest products in the industry.

Speakers are being sought for the conference to enrich the innovative program, which is geared toward socially and ecologically just mobility, with their contributions. As the organizer, Deutsche Messe aims to reflect the versatility of the topic and illuminate it from a wide variety of perspectives. "The mobility turnaround in urban areas will only succeed through the interaction of industry, science, public administration and politics. With the conference, we are creating a platform for this exchange, in which we take all perspectives into account. In this way, we are providing additional impetus," said project manager Florian Eisenbach in Hanover.
