HYPERMOTION -Experts and first movers discuss concepts for tomorrow’s mobility and logistics
19.09.2019: Hypermotion will take place from 26 to 28 November 2019.

Hypermotion will take place from 26 to 28 November 2019.
In light of climate change, obsolete infrastructure, diesel bans and the threat of gridlock in metropolitan areas, the question as to how we will be getting from A to B in future is more urgent than ever. At Hypermotion from 26 to 28 November 2019, experts and first movers will be getting together to discuss new concepts for tomorrow’s mobility and logistics.
Pressing issues regarding the future of mobility and logistics will be addressed by a high-quality roster of experts in a series of conferences, panel discussions and think tanks. A wide range of subjects will be covered, including the digitalisation and networking of transport systems, future mobility concepts, micromobility, bicycle transport and the electrification of transport, as well as sustainable solutions for tomorrow's supply chains and logistics.
This year marks the first time that the German Mobility Congress (DMK) is taking place as part of Hypermotion. The theme: ‘Mobility in conurbations – opportunities and challenges’. It all kicks off on 26 November with the ‘Future Mobility Workshop’, an event aimed at tomorrow’s specialists and managers, and will be followed in the afternoon by a panel discussion on the topic of ‘Development of the rail infrastructure in the Frankfurt-Rhine Main Region’.
‘City of the future’ is the theme of day two, when a variety of event formats will be devoted to discussing the challenges facing cities with regard to the mobility requirements of their residents, development approaches and the pitfalls of ride-sharing, as well as successful mobility concepts.
The STUVA Conference – an event devoted to the tunnel industry – is taking place alongside Hypermotion in Hall 5 on the Frankfurt exhibition grounds from 26 to 28 November 2019. Visitors can look forward to an extensive presentation programme and the accompanying STUVA Expo at which some 200 companies will be exhibiting.
The smc:smart mobility conference focuses on the DNA of our future traffic and transport systems. The topics range from the latest ideas for tomorrow’s mobility and the best approaches for networking and developing infrastructure on land, at sea and in the air, to innovations and their concrete application in cities and regions. The conference, which is being organised in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure’s ‘Lotsenstelle’ programme, outlines the mobility of the future and discusses its impacts on municipal and regional development.
Throughout this three-day event, experts will be talking with participants about the opportunities and risks that will be encountered on the way to the mobility transition. They will be illuminating the most important trends, disruptive changes, evolutionary developments and all the major and minor revolutions in motorised private transport, local public transport and logistics that these will necessitate.
Specialist conferences, an exhibition, workshops and interactive elements serve as the substantive framework of Hypermotion. As the link between logistics, mobility, digitalisation and climate protection, the smc serves as a forum for exchange regarding innovative mobility concepts and for knowledge transfer in the implementation of the green city master plans being supported by the BMVI, and therefore between municipalities, researchers, companies and private interests.
In addition to smart solutions for green cities and digital regions, the interactive sessions will be addressing the move towards cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) that is being discussed throughout the EU. The Fraunhofer Transport Alliance’s smc:Fraunhofer Mobility Infusion event guarantees that the necessary scientific expertise and the latest research and development findings will be part of the process.
The Hypermotion Lab is the central platform for topics that are disruptive and focused on the future. Over the course of three days, experts cast an eye into the future, addressing such things as air taxis, drones, hyperloops, future transport, artificial intelligence, the first and last miles, and mobility in conurbations.
The Urban Mobility Lab delves into the question as to whether the new mobility can improve the quality of life in our cities. Here, urban planners, transport planners, architects, futurists and young creatives discuss the potential offered by mobility that has been tailored to urban needs.
Visitors can work with respected experts as equals while students demonstrate their own abilities. At the interface between mobility and urbanity, the Urban Mobility Lab studies the trends that are bringing lasting changes to public spaces – digitalisation, electrification, pedestrian and bicycle mobility, urban logistics, intermodality and regional networking.
There will also be interesting talks on the topic of “Alternative mobility in cities: from owners to users – making travel faster and more affordable” at the VISION mobility THINK TANK on 26 November. Fascinating insights will also be on the menu at the second session: “The last mile: engines off – new concepts ranging from micromobility to cargo bikes”.
At the international ‘EXCHAiNGE – The Supply Chainers’ Community’ summit on 26 and 27 November 2019, supply chain experts and operations managers will be getting together to discuss technology, innovation, collaboration, mobility, sustainability, culture and mindsets – key success factors for a holistic supply chain – in keeping with this year's theme: ‘Management 4.0 – New Work & Digital Business’.
EXCHAiNGE will showcase how managers can successfully establish these modules in ecosystems and networks. The established networking platform brings experts together in interactive formats, linking trends with strategic core functions in the supply chain for the following areas of emphasis: innovation, sustainability, digital disruption and culture for the digital transformation. The highlight of EXCHAiNGE is the presentation of the Supply Chain Management Award and the Smart Solution Award 2019 on 27 November. On the day before the awards ceremony (26 November), the finalists will present their outstanding supply chain solutions to the awards panel and to participants.
“Innovations for logistics” is the primary theme of the Logistics Digital Conference, which is taking place on 28 November 2018. The conference features the presentation and discussion of visionary flagship projects in the field of logistics, as well as “Logistics 2030”, an innovation programme sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI). An additional session will focus on ‘logistics heroes’, image and the professional world of tomorrow.
