Hyperloop Conference

Premiere in Frankfurt: On 16 September 2021, the Hyperloop Conference will take place for the first time. Presented by Hypermotion and Mother Earth Ventures, it will bring together all the key players from the Hyperloop ecosystem.

Hyperloop Konzept

In 2013, Elon Musk presented his groundbreaking Hyperloop Alpha white paper. Various initiatives were launched around the world to address the issue. Since then, the revolutionary ultra-high-speed transport has been researched and new groundbreaking concepts have been developed .

The Hyperloop Conference will bring together researchers, start-ups, transport companies, political representatives and investors from all over the world at the Hypermotion in Frankfurt on 16 September 2021 and provide a platform for exchange and discussion. The focus is on questions such as: What are the latest technological developments? What does it take to implement a Hyperloop infrastructure? How can Hyperloop technology be integrated into existing transport systems? What challenges await a large-scale roll-out? And finally: How can acceptance in society be increased?

´I am excited to be participating in the 2021 hyperloop conference, representing Virgin Hyperloop. Germany is on the cutting edge of technological development, so it’s only fitting that the country would host the 1st edition of this conference.`

Sarah Lawson

‘Transport demand is forecasted to more than double towards 2050, and current policies are insufficient to achieve Paris targets. To achieve Europe's mission to become climate-neutral, investment into future-proof transportation like hyperloop is imperative.’

Mars Geuze
