Just announced! - Video Keynote from Horace Dediu
Horace is founder of the Micromobility Conference (SF & Europe), host of the Micromobility Podcast and globally respected technology analyst at Asymco. We are very privileged to have Horace joining us, having recently presented to two major North American events being the Micromobility Conference in San Francisco and the BloombergNEF Future of Mobility Summit. Analysing the history and trends of computing, mobiles and the rapid adoption of micromobility, Horace is a contributor to Bloomberg, Financial Times, Economist, Forbes and others.
A swathe of new electric personal transport options is creating a buzz. Grouped together under the Micromobility label are escooters, ebikes, electric skateboards, and more. Media coverage and the arrival of bright coloured rental fleets have ensured that the new modes have had grabbed attention both good and bad.
The rapid adoption, surpassing 500 million users globally, brought on by the fleets, and increasing private ownership, means decision-makers are under pressure to react quickly to understand the implications for public safety, regulation and infrastructure to achieve the full potential of benefits and mitigate problems.
Whether you work in the transport or planning professions or just have a keen interest, this is an opportunity to hear a wide-ranging discussion about the future of micromobility, urban transport and put questions to a panel of experts.
The event will discuss why new mobility options are expected to be a major disruptor and driver of behaviour-change. Speakers will examine how New Zealand is responding and look at international examples, discussing behaviour change, sustainability, safety and impacts on design for infrastructure, cities and the people that live there.
