The Italian Agency for Foreign Trade (ICE) promotes the participation of Italian companies in the largest international congress-expo on sustainable mobility, to be held next October in Madrid.

Global Mobility Call, the international congress-expo on sustainable mobility to be held in Madrid from 24 to 26 October, has confirmed the participation of Italy as a partner country of the event, thanks to an agreement signed between IFEMA MADRID, Smobhub and the Italian Agency for Foreign Trade (ICE).

The aim of this agreement is to promote the participation of Italian SMEs and startups in Global Mobility Call, creating a meeting point and offering an opportunity to showcase "Made in Italy" technologies and innovation in the various sectors of sustainable mobility.

The ICE Agency will have an exhibition space of 80 m2, which will host eight innovative Italian SMEs. Italian companies can apply to take advantage of this opportunity until 21 August. Companies will not have to pay for the exhibition space or entrance tickets, but will only have to cover their travel, accommodation, insurance and equipment transport costs.

All the information on the conditions of participation, as well as the registration form, can be found at this link.

The complete list of exhibitors is available here.

With more than 130 sessions, the GMC Congress space programme will allow participants to learn about the latest developments, trends and cutting-edge initiatives in sustainable mobility.
