The Future of Transport Conference returned to Brussels on 28th March for its 8th edition, gathering 202 in-person participants to discuss how the balance can between European environmental, trade and industrial policies while Europe’s transport and mobility sectors are experiencing an unprecedented transformation.
This year’s conference looked at Europe’s automotive sector in its role as a significant employer and innovator facing unprecedented volatility and upheaval, and focused on the following issues: What does the future look like for the European vehicle and batteries sector? What support does it need from regulators to survive and thrive in the green transition? How will geopolitics impact progress to zero-emission mobility for 2035? What progress is the sector making in the tilt towards software and digital, and as we move towards 5G-Advanced and eventually to 6G, what new use cases and applications are going to emerge and how can these be harnessed to make our roads and cities smarter and safer?
This annual European Cybersecurity Conference is part of Forum Europe’s Own-Initiative division where our event producers conceive, plan and deliver event programmes focused on the critical pillars of EU policy. We work independently and alongside policymakers, the civil society as well as industry stakeholders to ensure the content remains timely and relevant.
What We Did:
- Research and programme production
- Identification and invitations of speakers, as well as regular contact with those confirmed to organise the content and format of their contribution
- Sponsor recruitment and management
- Raising awareness for the event through mailings, personal invitations and social media posts and translate these activities into registrations
- Website and registration platform design, including the set-up of a waiting list when the event became over-subscribed
- Registrations and delegates management
- Full AV set up and fulfilment, stage design and collaboration with suppliers
- Onsite presence at the event to coordinate all final technical and choreographic arrangements, catering organisation, welcome of speakers and assistance to delegates.
“Forum Europe's attention to detail, organisation, and execution truly made this year's Future of Transport Conference a standout occasion that left a lasting impression on our team.
Seeing so many knowledgeable and influential individuals gathered together in one place was inspiring. We found the discussions incredibly informative and thought-provoking. It was a pleasure to lead the panel discussion on the transition to zero-emission vehicles with distinguished experts representing tech, industry, public policy, and the EU Commission.
Overall, I have nothing but positive feedback for your team and the event that you put together.”
Geraint Edwards, FiscalNote
