Kapsch TrafficCom Summit is a new annual event on the topic of mobility. We were commissioned with planning the concept and implementation of the first Summit and had the honor of launching a new event series together with Kapsch TrafficCom, dedicated this year to the topic of "Sustainable Mobility".
We created together with our partner FLAVE an individual digital platform to host the Summit, based on the design by in the headroom that explores the "World of the Future". The platform was available in English and Spanish, and the entire event was broadcast in English and Spanish (via live interpretation) as well. In addition to interactive questions that were sent to the online attendants and a live chat during the main part of the event, attendants had the choice between three deep-dive sessions on our digital platform. The deep-dive sessions were accessible with no extra download or tool via the domain kapschsummit.net for registered guests.
The Summit was moderated by Maggie Childs, who hosted the event together with Georg Kapsch. After Stefan Carsten’s engaging keynote speech on "The Future of Mobility – New Paradigms for Sustainability", Sophie Hackford and Christopher Tomlinson joined live via video call for a panel discussion. After the panel discussion, the attendants could choose between three deep-dive sessions on "Demand Management", "Traffic Management" and "Tolling", held by experts from Kapsch TrafficCom.
We chose the Streaming Suite at the Austria Trend Hotel Savoyen Vienna as the studio. We used a 42-square-meter LED wall to create an immersive "world of the future" with our illustrations.
