The inaugural edition of LA CoMotion, a hybrid event celebrating the future of mobility through conferences and workshops with global mobility leaders, as well as extensive demos and exhibition spaces, will take place November 15-19, 2017 throughout Los Angeles’ vibrant Arts District.
The five-day annual event gathers urban mobility players from cities around the world — from scrappy start-ups to the world’s largest transportation companies, from VC firms investing in new mobility solutions to vehicle design shops, public transport authorities and cutting edge research labs at leading global universities. Participants include leaders from across this emerging urban mobility ecosystem whose goal is making our cities move more efficiently and effectively.
Taking place in the heart of one of the world’s most exciting and creative cities, LA CoMotion is designed to transform the city’s Arts District into an animated and interactive venue demonstrating the latest developments in mobility, from autonomous vehicles, drones and car and-bike sharing pioneers to the world’s most innovative public transportation solutions. Across the neighborhood, there will be test tracks, drone races, vehicle demos and show-and-tell activations.
Los Angeles is a natural leader of the new mobility revolution. As the city that invented the culture of the automobile, L.A. is now taking bold steps to reimagine mobility in the decades ahead. L.A.’s Mobility 2035 Plan, adopted last year by the Los Angeles City Council, aims to radically transform how Angelinos will move around their city in the future. And on November 8, Los Angeles County voters massively adopted Measure M, designed to raise billions of dollars of new funds for transportation projects in and around Los Angeles.
