Micromobility World: Dates, News, Rumors, and Everything Else To Know

An event focused on moving people more efficiently through cities

Micromobility solutions focus on using new technologies beyond the car to encourage people to use mass transit or lighter options to reduce clogged roads and improve commuting and travel in urban areas. Micromobility World is the first event to focus solely on this technology area. Micromobility Industries sponsors the event.

The last Micromobility World took place virtually on January 12, 2022. The inaugural event occurred in 2021.

What Kinds of Topics Are Covered at This Event?

Disrupting the car is the focus here, so every aspect of the event is about finding alternatives to car ownership and use.

The 2022 event featured two speakers, a co-founder of Zipcar (short-term car rentals), Veniam (platform for connected vehicles), and NUMO (transportation alliance), and the founder and CEO of Bird, an electric bike and scooter company. See the full agenda.

The 2021 event's agenda included 'Unpacking the Year of the Electric Bicycle' and 'Building the Cities of the Future.' The primary focus is electric vehicles and the rethinking of urban areas for the future.

Of course, much goes along with those topics; they don't exist in a vacuum. Anyone interested in sustainability, climate, pollution, economy, and how humans can impact the future by shaping new ideas around urban living should find something of interest here.
