Urban Air Mobility 2020: Future of Aerial Transport & Logistics

Thursday, October 22, 2020 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM PDT

"Urban Air Mobility 2020: Future of Aerial Transport & Logistics" will feature keynotes, panels, demos, and networking. This half-day conference will offer entrepreneurs, R&D experts, executives, VCs, and strategic investors the opportunity to exchange on UAM topics with German and European initiatives, institutions, corporates, and startups in the field. Three exciting keynotes and two thought-provoking panels will cover topics such as:

- The Future of UAM,

- Market Potential,

- Technology,

- Infrastructure, and

- Operations & Regulations

We are thrilled to provide North American and European companies with a platform to exchange on sustainable technology and business concepts that bring regional development, the environment, and society into focus. Stakeholders from across the Urban Air Mobility arena — from the public and private sectors to academia — will come together to address one of the most pressing issues of our time: the future of urban mobility!

Selected startups in the UAM space will also have a chance to demo their products & services while attendees can get to know each other via speed-networking during the conference.

Later in the afternoon we will host a virtual Bavarian Happy Hour!
