City Mobility 2020
May 20 @ 8:00 am - May 21 @ 5:00 pm BST
On May 20-21, 2020, Meeting of the Minds will convene 150 global thought leaders in Toronto, Canada to share best practices, lessons learned, and key insights that are accelerating new mobility solutions and autonomous technology in cities.
Morning plenaries will discuss current mobility challenges, gaps and opportunities, followed by global best practices to better prepare and anticipate the electric, shared, autonomous and connected revolution. We use the Ontario region as a case study to delve into very specific use cases to test our ideas throughout the day. Sessions will take a deep dive into key technology, policy, and financing tools for cities and emerging solutions from national and global examples. Morning plenaries will be followed by small group discussions over lunch with plenary speakers to continue the conversation and build partnerships.
In the afternoon, all 150 summit participants will have the opportunity to divide into small groups and experience behind-the-scenes site visits of the area’s transportation and mobility initiatives as well as live demos from emerging and established start-ups and global technology companies. Demos will include Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Network (AVIN), Iteris, RoadBotics, Lacuna, Circuit, Upcycles, Eva, ChargeLab and more to be announced. This will be followed by small group, facilitated workshop discussions to unpack emerging trends, lessons learned and next steps.
