Share of intenational exhibitors increasing to over 40 per cent // Now open for 2018 bookings // 3. international World Mobility Summit with participants from all five continents
Munich, October 2017 – eMove360° Europe 2017 – International Trade Fair for Mobility 4.0 – electric – connected – autonomous, that ended last Thursday, keeps on growing after its successful debut in Munich last year. Key drivers of this development were exhibitors and visitors from outside of Germany. More than 300 exhibitors from more than 25 countries – this represents a share of international exhibitors of 44 per cent – presented their solutions and innovations for the mobility of the future. Especially a few very large shared country booths from countries like China and Korea as well as Slovenia, Italy or the Netherlands have boosted stand sales to give organizer MunichExpo a 20 per cent growth – and a large number of international visitors. Delegations from China, Belgium, Catalonia and Israel have used the opportunity to get some first hand information about latest and future technologies in electric mobility and autonomous driving.
“We are very delighted that we can reach such a large international community with our subject, the mobility of the future”, said Robert Metzger, CEO of the organizer MunichExpo. About 32 per cent of the visitors travelled from abroad to Munich to see the show. “Our exhibitors specifically emphasized the high quality of the conversations – with international visitors – they had during the trade fair and business opportunities related to these talks, especially with R&D staff from the car manufacturers and tier 1-suppliers.”
Trending Topic Charging Infrastructure – Engineering On The Rise
The focus area Charging Infrastructure was – thanks to the presence of all leading providers in this segment – one of the core topics, especially in connection with renewable energies. The leading German utility providers – some of them with their sub-brands for new energy concepts – attended the trade fair and used the platform to present their solutions to the professional trade fair audience like fleet managers, cities and communities, taxi and delivery services as well as touristic destinations. This year’s trade fair also saw a significant growth in engineering topics like Battery, Powertrain, Materials and Electronics.
The conference 3. World Mobility Summit held in parallel to the trade fair was once again a success with participants from all five continents: Participants praised the consistently high quality of the lectures and presentations. The panel discussions at the end of every session were broadly appreciated as an enhancement of the conference. In the eMove360° Award for Electric Mobility & Autonomous Driving and the 15th edition of the MATERIALICA Design + Technology Award numerous companies and organizations have joined the competition, among them renowned companies like Bosch, Rolls Royce, Volkswagen, Magna, Continental, Schaeffler, ebm-papst or Grohe as well as small companies and renowned research facilities like volabo, based in the Greater Munich Area, winner of the category Powertrain in the first edition of eMove360° Award for Electric Mobility & Autonomous Driving.
