STUVA meets Hypermotion

Running concurrently with the STUVA Conference, the Hypermotion will take place at the Frankfurt fairgrounds for the third time.

Rapid digitalisation in many sectors of life poses a challenge to us all. Hyper-consumption, mobility needs, quite apart from ongoing climate change as well as increasing urbanisation require new mobility concepts. It is essential to rethink and overcome existing systemic limits. In this way, a future-oriented and sustainable change to mobility can be brought about. Ultimately, the solution lies in new intelligent networked and multimodal systems.

In devising such systems, the players from the mobility, supply chain and infrastructure segments are confronted with numerous unanswered questions. They also have to face a dynamic and intangible market environment as well as resistance and regulations, which if anything hamper innovations rather than foster them. The Hypermotion wishes to become a trailblazer here. It intends promoting dialogue between established mobility and logistics companies and first movers in a manner that is both interdisciplinary and beneficial to all modes of transport, opening up new perspectives, discussing future-oriented concepts and encouraging networking among all those involved. “At the Hypermotion we bring all modes of transport together as the first platform for digital transformation. Our aim here is to inspire networking within the industry so that new integrated solutions for future mobility can be created”, is how Danilo Kirschner, the director of Hypermotion sums it up.

Participants of STUVA Conference can look around the Hypermotion Expo free-of-charge

With this goal in sight, it goes without saying that the event is also of interest for the experts attending the STUVA Conference. As a consequence, the STUVA has teamed up with the Hypermotion this year. All the participants of the STUVA Conference have the chance to look around the Hypermotion exhibition area free-of-charge. They can play an active role if they want. After all, taking part is the name of the game at the Hypermotion. Thus, all participants are invited to join in the workshops and think tanks in order to discuss topical problems and jointly arrive at initial approaches for solving them. Conversely, many trade visitors at the Hypermotion will look around the STUVA Expo. In this way, interesting cross-industry contacts for the firms exhibiting at the STUVA Conference will also ensue.

One of the key issues at this year’s Hypermotion is the legalisation of what is known as “micro mobility”. Electric scooters and hoverboards will soon be allowed to drive on German roads – quite legally. After all, these mini transporters provide an environmentally friendly and low-cost alternative to the car for short journeys. In keeping with this development, the Hypermotion is providing a micro mobility course on which producers can present their lightweight vehicles for movement of people and freight. Apart from monowheels and Segways, E-bikes, cargo-bikes and E-scooters can be tried out.


German Mobility Congress

The participants at the Hypermotion can look forward to an exciting and extensive conference programme on each of the three days. For the first time, the German Mobility Congress is also being held at the Hypermotion. The Congress is headlined “Mobility in built-up Areas – Chances and Challenges”. In addition, other conferences are scheduled such as “EXCHAiNGE” as a famed international event for supply chain management or the “Logistics Digital Conference” (LDC), which is devoted among other things, to freight transportation of the future. At the “smart mobility conference” (smc) on the other hand, emphasis is placed on sustainable urban mobility concepts and digital networking.

In the Hypermotion Lab, start-ups as well as established firms will put forward their business ideas and projects. In interactive formats such as elevator pitches or during speed networking, newcomers display their abilities, whilst the finalists from established companies battle for the coveted Supply Chain Management Award.
