It’s not breaking news that the planet is in trouble. It would be fair to point a (very accusatory) finger at the transportation sector for being responsible for a large part of global warming: excessive GHG emissions; air pollution; noise pollution; and land consumption. But, we also acknowledge that mobility has a vital role in both society and the economy. So, here poses the problem: what can be done?

This is where MOVE America comes in: positioned as America’s number one tech mobility and start-up show, the event sheds light on the disruptive technologies within the mobility ecosystem. The Austin-based show is driving genuine change across the entire value chain by holding industry-leaders to account. Held at the Austin Convention Center from 26 September 2023 to 27 September 2023, the two days will see over 4,000 attendees come to experience talks and technologies that are both promoting and developing sustainable urban transport.

 

Haven’t been to MOVE America before? Here’s what you can expect

Electric scooters zooming around the test track as investors shake hands with brogrammers on the next unicorn. On our stages, electric vehicle (EV) and energy giants encourage the audience to step into the future with them. And, as you reach for your third breakfast taco from one of our many food trucks, you can see the newest truck tech innovation from the corner of your eye. That is exactly what MOVE America is all about: a hub to link all things mobility.

Metaphorically and literally, the floor will be charged with an impressive selection of the latest mobility products. Just like our flagship event in London, every stand will be showcasing their latest designs: EV charging stations, electric mini car racetracks, screen displays and so much more.

With as many as 24 stages across the two days, the event will be hosting a wide range of talks, all led by experts in the industry who will all be delving into their own individual mobility-related discussions on trending topics including: EVs, Energy & Charging, Smart Cities, Battery Tech, Autonomous Vehicles, Mining, Hydrogen & Alternative Fuels… The list goes on and on.

Joining our speaker line-up this year are a selection of impressive names, including: Mercedes-Benz, General Motors, Ford, Hyundai, Navistar, City of Austin, Uber, Lime, Lyft, Amtrak, LA Metro, Getaround, Zipcar, FedEx, Penske, US Department of Energy and many more. And, after a day of hearing inspiring chat and walking around our sponsor saturated floor, the night will continue into the MOVE GROOVE drinks reception, with a DJ and bar crawl to follow.

MOVE America comes at a time when the U.S. continues to face the ever-increasing necessity of sustainable transportation solutions. We are proud to be an unparalleled platform for all players in the mobility ecosystem as a space to connect and network.
