As part of its first ever race weekend in London, the eSkootr Championship (eSC) is bringing together the key players in micromobility, transport and sports governance for a high-level leadership forum.
Hosted at the Printworks London venue in Rotherhithe, South East London on Friday 13 May, invited delegates will debate key topics around new mobility, including how public policy can support the development of micromobility and how sport can help shape the public’s mindset.
Alex Wurz, eSC Co-Founder, said that the New Mobility Forum is a key part of eSC’s mission to encourage the take-up of smart, safe and sustainable micromobility solutions in major city centres, where they are needed most.
“Our London forum will bring together the brightest minds in the industry to help provide the answers to issues standing in the way of a smarter future. I can think of no better place to host this than in London, where eSC will kickstart a fantastic journey for its maiden season, and where the public use of e-scooters is currently a key issue of debate. Part of our aim is to change the perception of e-scooter use so we’re very excited to be leading this event.”
As part of this event, eSC has agreed a media partnership with Zag Daily, who will manage the content and promotion of the event, curating a conference programme for discussion and debate on the key issues in the sector.
Richard Woods, Zag Group Founding Partner, said: “We’re very proud to be working with the eSkootr Championship on this important event. The series has the potential to promote sustainable micromobility solutions on a global scale and we at Zag are very keen to follow its progress.”
