One of the world’s top trade fairs for electric and autonomous mobility, eMove360°, is getting more and more traction with around 300 exhibitors from 25 countries in attendance. Brands like Siemens, Porsche Engineering Charging Solutions and Volkswagen Financial Services attended this year’s event in Munich.
eMove360° showcases a wide range of next generation and sustainable mobility solutions, from urban and mobile design, materials and processing solutions, connected and autonomous driving to electronics as well as infotainment. The target audience of the exhibition are developers and designers, IT professionals and professional industrial buyers such as fleet managers.
Alongside the fair there are now five new conferences with subjects like ‘Electric Mobility & Autonomous Driving’ and the ‘Battery Conference’ with experts gathering from all around the world.
The international eMove360° award is also in its second year and it’s attracting more entries from outside of Germany. “We are very pleased to have established the eMove360 Award for Electric Mobility and Autonomous Driving as an international award. Even though we have some winners from Germany, the total participation was at more than 50 percent by international contributors, and so was the share of the international finalists.” says Robert Metzger, Managing Director of MunichExpo and organiser of eMove360 Awrd for Electric Molbity and Autonomous Driving 2018.
He adds: “The great task of shaping the mobility of the the future employs the best minds around the world – in Munich, in Bavaria, throughout Germany and Europe or even in China – and regularly produces technical innovations and very intelligent concepts.”
The awards were presented to the winners at the Munich Glyptothek by the German actor and documentary filmmaker Hannes Jaenicke and the singer and entertainer Tobey Wilson. The winners included: Hubject from Berlin, wallbe from Schlangen (Northrhine-Westfalia), the Munich-based companies Blickfield and LION Smart, RYTLE from Bremen, the Czech manufacturer MW Motors and the Swiss company SUNCAR based in Zurich.
Journalists and experts also held discussions about Mobility 4.0. Christian Bangemann from the automotive consultants Berylls Strategy Advisors pointed out that eMove360°:”Gives very practical informations such as: how can I get a charging station in my private garage or where is the next e-carsharing possibility? Mobility 4.0 is no longer for clients of big enterprises.”
Paul Entwistle from IONITY, a joint venture from BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford and the Volkswagen Group, who is now building a new pan-European high power charging network, says: “Munich is getting more and more relevant as a perfect market place for e-mobility in the world”.
