FT Future of Mobility Summit 2020

Riding the waves of uncertainty and opportunity

London |

Overview

What will future mobility look like, what will it cost and what will it take to get there? The coronavirus has had a drastic impact on the mobility we take for granted, what will be its lasting effects in terms of how we live our lives as workers and consumers?  Historically, the mobility ecosystem has been complex and fragmented, often involving poorly connected modes of transport operating in isolation, and heavily reliant on fossil fuels.  As demand patterns shift and environmental stresses increase, what transportation will we need to get around and deliver goods and services?  How can collaboration, innovation and investment speed up the transition to a smarter, better integrated and more sustainable future?   

The FT Future of Mobility Summit brings together leaders with a shared commitment to establishing sustainable and seamless mobility.  The agenda will explore the most effective ways of working together to develop networks, products and services and prepare for the waves of uncertainty and opportunity that lie ahead.

    • What are the opportunities to glean and exploit data to reduce air pollution, ease congestion and enhance the passenger experience?
    • How is regulation evolving to address security concerns and privacy issues surrounding greater connectivity?

    This session will give the floor to disruptors and solution providers who are pushing the boundaries and addressing mobility’s greatest challenges.  How can the latest wave of technologies optimise connectivity, flexibility and sustainability?  What threat do start-ups pose to established businesses?  What are the opportunities for cooperation?  How can new technology be financed and incentivised? What do the innovations offer in terms of potential investment returns?

    As shocks and uncertainties continue to rock the travel industry, now, more than ever, its future depends on the ability to adapt and innovate.  Here we take a look at how the limitations and fall-out of the coronavirus have impacted global travel and consider the outlook for businesses throughout the sector. 

    • How have recent developments fuelled existing problems and created new ones?  What are the implications for aviation, tourism and corporate travel?
    • Who needs help the most when cash-flows grind to a halt?  What support is necessary and how can companies recover?  To what extent should government intervene?
    • What could be the lasting effects on demand? Are long-term growth forecasts realistic?
