Frequently Asked Questions

Who should attend the 2016 National Shared Mobility Summit? 

Anyone wanting to stay on the cutting edge of the shared mobility industry! Our attendees will include city officials, transportation practitioners, shared mobility providers, policy and environmental advocates, as well as researchers and students. As participants of the largest shared mobility-centered conference, you will gain valuable exposure to leading international and national shared mobility thinkers and concepts through cutting-edge sessions and hands-on workshops, as well as unprecedented networking opportunities with public and private innovators.

Why Chicago? 

Transportation innovation began in Chicago more than a century ago. The city’s long history of public and private investment in transportation has resulted in a robust system with affordable and environmentally-sound options for all. As SUMC’s headquarters are in Chicago, we seek to highlight innovation in the Midwest and across the nation. The National Shared Mobility Summit will take place at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in the heart of downtown Chicago. Designed by architect Jeanne Gang, the Silver LEED-certified venue includes two floors of light-filled conference rooms and an expansive expo space.

What can I expect for this years’ program agenda?
