The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport, Mr. Norman Baker MP, has confirmed his attendance as keynote speaker at Frost & Sullivan's upcoming annual industry event 'Urban Mobility 3.0'. The two day conference in its fourth consecutive year will take place on 13th and 14th June 2012 in London. This year's focus is on 'OEMs New Mobility Offerings and New Business Models Linking Web 2.0'.
“It is indeed an honour to have Mr. Baker join our event," says Partner and Global Practice Director Automotive & Transportation, Mr. Sarwant Singh. "Our annual workshop was established in 2009 to raise the debate on topics and trends affecting the global development in transportation, such as urbanisation, new mobility solutions or intermodal transportation. We are proud of our efforts to bring the private and public sectors closer together."
The two day event will debate and discuss new urban mobility concepts, how latest trends can provide opportunities for government, public sector and corporations to align their future mobility vision, products and services toward customers' unmet needs. The event will also debate the role of public transport, specifically bus and rail, and electric vehicles as a sustainable transport of now and the future.
Mr. Baker's keynote address will open day one of the conference which focuses on the issue: "Personal or Public?: Mega Cities and the Sustainable Transport of the Future". The debate will be facilitated by a panel of parliamentarians and industry as well as academic representatives and will take place at the House of Lords in the House of Parliament. Day two will be held at The Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) and feature keynote speeches and panel discussions with both experts from the automotive industry and the academic world.
