General questions

Why is the "VDV Electric Bus Conference and Exhibition ElekBu" becoming "mobility move"?

Electromobility only works if it is seen as a networked system. This year's integration of the Future Congress on Autonomous Driving showed that this approach has proved its worth. Participants were able to hear about different topics in one place and to engage in discussions beyond their own horizons. Exhibitors were also able to showcase their comprehensive systems expertise. More topics will be added in the future. With the new umbrella brand "mobility move", a framework has been created for the outward appearance that goes beyond the electric bus - although it remains the focus of attention.

What remains as in previous years?

The high density of information on electromobility will be maintained. Great importance is attached to maintaining the technical depth and not diluting it - despite additional topics. Everyone can take something away with them for their progress, regardless of whether they are a newcomer or an experienced user.

Which topics will be in focus in 2024?

In 2024, the emphasis will be on introducing novice users to electromobility.  In addition, "mobility move" will address ongoing concerns around fire safety, facility conversion and development, charging and fuel infrastructure, as well as IT and interconnected management systems. Our attention at the Autonomous Driving Congress will be on cutting-edge vehicles, funding programs for innovation by the federal government, and IT systems that support operations. At KONTIKI, we will concentrate on the “Deutschlandticket”, IT security, and guaranteed data quality.
