Visionaries Join Michelin at Movin'On 2017, the Global Summit for Sustainable Mobility

This June, the leading minds and stakeholders in the rise of sustainable transportation will gather for the Global Summit for Action in Sustainable Mobility in Montreal, Canada.

Movin’On 2017

Presented by Michelin in association with C2, Movin’On is the international summit for action in sustainable mobility. This summit will bring together experts and visionaries from a broad cross section of stakeholders in transportation, including automotive, rail, air, truck, bus, bicycle, shipping, academia, government, NGOs and non-profit organizations for break-through innovation workshops and collaborative sessions that aim to drive actions to address mobility challenges for growing urban areas.

The symposium experience will feature inspiring keynote presentations, hands-on collaborative sessions, networking opportunities and technology exhibitions. Movin’On will also host collaborative workshops, master classes and labs that feature cutting-edge innovation and disruptive technology. Instead of a traditional exhibit hall, Movin’On will feature an Innovation Center and “Village Start-Up,” a forum where dozens of start-up companies will present concepts for the future of mobility.

MOVIN'ON 2017 Canada will be the 13th edition of the global sustainable mobility summit

Canada is now in the spotlight with the recent Budget 2017 fund allocation of $21.9 Billion towards sustainable mobility and green initiatives. It is timely then to have key stakeholders from the world over to gather here and discuss how to regulate and implement sustainable mobility, how to drive action, address mobility issues and share invaluable case studies to learn from.
