Global Mobility Call aims to contribute to the economic recovery and energy resilience needed in today's urgent circumstances in Europe

The development of sustainable mobility is key to a steady post-pandemic recovery in an economic, social and environmental balance needed to align growth with the European Green Deal goals and the NextGenerationEU funds.

Global Mobility Call, the project from IFEMA MADRID and Smobhub, aims to position itself as an international reference for promoting sustainable mobility. From June 14 to 16, this Congress will offer a chance to strengthen development of an ecosystem that will become increasing important to economic growth in Spain and Europe in the next few years.

Mobility is in the throes of change, of transforming the industry, of propelling politicians to encourage greater sustainability, of bringing business sectors together that never worked in synch directly before, as society also calls for new solutions to its transport needs.

Global Mobility Call seeks to contribute to the economic recovery and energy resilience needed in the urgent circumstances in Europe today. It is the ideal space to hammer out innovative, ambitious plans. With more than 100 conferences scheduled with some 250 speakers from home and abroad, the New Economy area for promoting innovation and talent, the presence of startups, scaleups, and investors, as well as an exhibition and networking area will all join in the transversal, multi-sector debate on aspects such as economic recovery plans and the promoting of new sustainable mobility projects.

The conferences will cover aspects such as the expectations for global growth in a situation of post-pandemic recovery, its impact on new needs and services for mobility and the fundamental measures to reach the net Zero Emissions goals.

The talks will also cover urban, interurban, and rural development for striking a demographic, economic, and environmental balance across the country and new business models and value chains that will make up the new mobility ecosystem.

All this will be happening in an environment in which leading businesses design new business models to adapt to the mobility of the future, start-ups with a growing activity in this ecosystem, tech platforms and networks of knowledge that add their potential to promote that economic growth.

For the general manager of IFEMA MADRID, Eduardo López-Puertas, "Global Mobility Call hopes to be a driving force behind economic and social recovery after the pandemic, to contribute to energy resilience to international shocks, and to take advantage of the opportunities for sustainable development posed in the European Green Deal and NextGenerationEU funds.

We're still in time to carry out large-scale projects thanks to the opportunity we're given by the Recovery Funds, which earmark nearly 20 billion euros for this industry; and also in time to foster public-private collaboration and make use of the development and investment opportunities of the NextGenerationEU funds, he adds.
