Sustainability focus at Next Mobility Exhibition in Milan
Environmental sustainability will be the central focus of Next Mobility Exhibition which takes place in Milan from 12-14 October. The show will feature electric, gas, hydrogen and zero-impact biofuels, as well as new mobility systems including sharing and micro-mobility, and futuristic ones, such as urban air mobility.
Bus manufacturers exhibiting at the show include Industria Italiana Autobus, Irizar e-mobility, Isuzu Bus Italia, Iveco Bus, Karsan, MAN Truck & Bus Italia, Otokar Europe, Rampini Carlo, Solaris Bus & Coach, Tecnobus and ZF Italia.
The three-day exhibition also includes a conference and seminar programme, organised with a range of partners including UITP and IRU.
The conference includes a session on ‘Drivers for sustainable and innovative mobility’ which aims to offer the tools to be put in place now to revive demand for public transport.
“We are opening the conference with an event in which we not only aim to analyse and discuss technical aspects, but with which we want to make clear how crucial it is now to promote a cultural approach to the topic of sustainable mobility’” says Pierluigi Coppola, Politecnico di Milano, chairman of the NME technical and scientific committee and curator of the conference. “Only by creating a virtuous system and acting together can we make a concrete contribution to making our cities more liveable, safe and clean.”
