19 - 20 June 2018
Köln Messe, Cologne, Germany


The Future of Transportation is a study and conference on the subject of What Next. One of our core themes is ‘Getting Transportation Off the Ground’, in which we will examine how quickly personal airborne transportation systems will become viable mass transportation. The futuristic vision of skyscrapers surrounded by airborne transport for mass commuting could be just a few years away, but are the world’s governments and existing transport providers and operators sizing themselves up for the change? Will today’s automotive companies with brands that rank continuously among the world’s leading names be lost in history or will they – as, for example, Mercedes has long stated – be part of the new transport solution?

The Future of Transportation World Conference will bring together world transportation leaders from automotive manufacturers and their suppliers, transportation authorities and city planners, rail and public transportation technology firms and operators, technology and software giants, drone and personal air transportation solution companies, freight and logistics companies, mass-transit solution providers, business consultants, and inventors of new and disruptive global mobility solutions, all with the common goal of devising better solutions for the increasingly demanding challenge of providing safe, efficient, sustainable transportation for the world in 2030 and beyond.
