At Last! Australia’s First Micromobility Conference
Micromobility is a relatively new word that encompasses traditional bikes, e-bikes, cargo bikes, e-scooters, share schemes, all other forms of light electric vehicles, plus a wide range of enabling technology, products and services.
Micromobility is booming, but with this boom is coming changes and challenges for all levels of government, industry and our broader society.
Australia’s first dedicated Micromobility Conference will give delegates the opportunity to learn about best practices from international and Australian experts.
According to the Australian Cycling Economy Report recently produced by EY, Australia’s state and local governments spent $428 million on cycling related infrastructure and programs alone in 2020. This figure is trending up each year.
After hearing from inspirational keynote speakers, the Micromobility Conference will break into delegates’ choice of two themes on each of its two days.
Delegates will also be able to see best practice examples via facilities tours to be hosted by expert practitioners from the City of Sydney, with e-bikes and helmets provided. They’ll also be able to visit the Micromobility Expo, to be run concurrently at Royal Randwick Racecourse, which will include a huge range of exhibits plus safe, traffic free test riding opportunities.
The Micromobility Conference will be a great opportunity to make new contacts, develop your professional skills, to learn about both the bigger picture trends and latest technical information and to simply be inspired and encouraged.
For those unable to attend in person, we’ll be live streaming all sessions and offering virtual registration at reduced rates.
A Theme for Everyone
Being such a complex and diverse topic, we’re breaking the Micromobility Conference down into four themes:
Each theme will run for one day and we’ll be hosting two themes per day simultaneously. Delegates will have the option to register for one or two days, either in person or online.
During each of the two days, we’ll be running the two theme sessions in synchronisation. That is, with the same timings for sessions, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea breaks, so that delegates can easily move from theme one to the other and back again if they wish.
All delegates will gather at the start of each day for a single opening keynote sessions before breaking into the theme of their choice.
