The speakers as well as the participants attending the conference discuss the common goal of devising better answers to the increasingly demanding challenge of providing safe, efficient, sustainable transportation for the world in 2030 and beyond.
Tony Robinson, CEO of UKi Media & Events, said, “The Future of Transportation is a world-leading conference on the subject of ‘what next?’. Our primary theme this year is ‘Do or Die’. That may sound a bit extreme but we either tolerate change and disruption now or face a total crisis in 10 to 20 years’ time. Cities are already gridlocked; inter-urban motorways and autobahns have miles of queuing trucks and cars; air quality in many cities is already at crisis point. In some instances, the latter in particular, solutions are starting to be realized. However, the broader issues of gridlock and under capacity in transportation networks are a long way from being remedied. That’s what this conference is about.”
