On 24-25 June 2019, Amsterdam is hosting IMPACT>MOBILITY, a brand-new type of conference connecting Europe’s leading decision makers, automakers, public transport authorities, mobility service platforms and investors to create partnerships and financial models for the new smart mobility landscape.

European cities are undergoing a revolution in urban mobility. The mass outlawing of ICE vehicles in a collective objective to meet ambitious zero-emission targets has presented opportunities for a new breed of mobility services providers, each of whom are battling to satisfy the needs of the on-demand customer.

Backed by billions of dollars in investment, the industry is on the cusp of a lucrative mobility marketplace where data is king. Yet, despite the hype, the investment and the landscape changing potential, there is a very real and uneasy truth; a fully defined ecosystem and commercial strategy between public and private parties has yet to emerge.

IMPACT>MOBILITY Event Director, Luke James, said: “Working closely with the city of Amsterdam, the objective of the conference is to connect the leading stakeholders to tackle mobility data and monetisation challenges head-on. It will focus on connecting public and private sectors, to delve deep into financial modelling, investment strategy and business models across the transport, smart mobility and connected vehicle ecosystem.

“Two days of in-depth conference sessions and networking with over 200 of Europe’s leading decision makers, the conference will allow attendees to tackle the crucial question that is facing the whole mobility ecosystem: ‘Where is the money in mobility?’ This will allow them to build the partnerships that will deliver a long-term commercial model for Mobility-as-a-Service for its stakeholders.”
