FRANKFURT, Germany - The new location and the new focus on urban mobility of Eurobike next week comes with a series of new initiatives. One of them is the first edition of the Mobility Network Night on Thursday 14 July. The event aims to provide a framework to explore cross-industry synergies with other relevant urban mobility players.

“In an informal atmosphere, the initiators want to create space for genuine, personal exchange between decision-makers and opinion-makers. Beyond their own playing field, new contacts are to be made - whether legacy companies or forward-looking start-ups,” said the three organisers of the first edition of the Mobility Network Night, Monika Fiedler-Proksch (fiedler & peter concepts GmbH), Karla Sommer (Velokin) and Daniela Odesser (Dani O. Kommunikation).

Prof. Dr. Marco te Brömmelstroet

The agenda includes impulses and inspiration through speeches and panel discussions on topics relevant to the industry. The keynote speech will be delivered by Prof. Dr. Marco te Brömmelstroet, founding academic director of the Urban Cycling Institute, a part of the Centre for Urban Studies at the University of Amsterdam. The Institute leads research into the reciprocal relations between cycling, society and cities and is also actively involved in international dissemination of Dutch cycling knowledge.

Panel discussion

The panel discussion will highlight the challenges and opportunities in making supply chains sustainable. Consultancy and industry-wide experts joining the panel discussion include Patrick Ayad, Global Leader Mobility and Transportation at Hogan Lovells; Annalena Horsch, Managing Director, at Coboc; Christopher Werner, Managing Partner, at fp – Frank Partners, Kristjan Maruste, co-founder & CEO of Comodule and Äike as well as Jonas Stolzke, co-founder and CEO of my Boo.
