Strong community – strong event programme

8 Sep 2021

Decarbonisation, digitisation and globalisation – these are pressing challenges that demand bold and innovative solutions in the fields of mobility and logistics. From 14 to 16 September 2021 Hypermotion Frankfurt will be promoting networking as it brings all key players together in the same place. The agenda also features a top-notch supporting programme.

“Hypermotion Frankfurt combines a conventional trade fair with a strong event programme. As a result, participants can not only experience pioneering products for tomorrow’s mobility and logistics, but also share ideas on the latest industry developments. Everything revolves around the community concept,” said Danilo Kirschner, Show Director of Hypermotion Frankfurt, in describing the idea behind the event.

With DP World, one of the world’s biggest port operators and a leading provider of smart end-to-end logistics, enabling the seamless operation of supply chains around the globe, Hypermotion also boasts a strong global partner. The company aims to revolutionise the logistics of global trade with innovations and technology. Ongoing projects include efficient solutions for container storage, digital applications for networking global goods flows, and the utilisation of hyperloop technology for goods transport.

Exchanging, discussing and developing concepts and ideas with other experts – that is the focus of the conference programme on all three days of the event.

On 16 September 2021, the Hyperloop Conference is bringing all key players together for the first time to promote the widespread use of these systems. Transport companies, hyperloop start-ups, tube manufacturers, vacuum technology suppliers, port operators, steel producers and infrastructure firms will all be taking part.
