The event is set to showcase the futuristic technologies, new driving habits and usages that will accompany the mutations of the automobile and service industries. Adding two more facets with new events viz. MONDIAL DE LA MOBILITE and MONDIAL.TECH, the show promises to be an ideal destination for visitors and auto professionals.
With mobility in its DNA, Paris Motor Show will bring together all types of transport stakeholders! The show is likely to attract close to 300 auto majors who will be showcasing their latest technological innovation in the auto space. Digital innovation is changing the way younger, urban consumers relate to the automobile, creating new expectations for ownership and usage models and new “mobility” contraptions which have appeared in urban settings. The visitors of the Show will enjoy a lively and unique pavilion where each can discover new and responsible mobility solutions.
Technology “disruption” remains at the heart of The Paris Motor Show which is also launching a BtoB MONDIAL.TECH. The aim is to bring together automobile manufacturers, equipment manufacturers, Tech giants and start-ups to deepen their collaboration to shape the future of transportation and mobility. The MONDIAL.TECH Startup Awards will be the biggest competition between start-ups from the entire world, dedicated to the automobile and future mobility industries, organized in partnership with the Startup Sésame network. Selected among several hundred candidates from thirty or so countries in the world, 64 finalist start-ups will be asked to present their pitch and exhibit at the MONDIAL.TECH show.
They will thus meet all the ecosystem: manufacturers, equipment manufacturers and tech providers and will have the opportunity to create solid business connections.
