Transportation And Mobility Conference April 12

The inaugural Empire State of Mobility Conference will take place at the Jacob Javits Center on Wednesday, April 12, prior to of the 10-day The New York International Auto Show. Technology is revolutionizing urban, personal mobility through innovations such as ubiquitous sensor technology on the ground, vehicle-to-infrastructure and vehicle-to-vehicle communication, pedestrian and cyclist detection and avoidance systems and self-driving electric shuttles among others.

As the most densely populated U.S. city and the home of the world’s financial industry, New York is the natural location for a conference focused on how private/public partnerships will fund the major infrastructure improvements necessary to create connected mobility.

“The U.S. Department of Transportation awarded $50 million to Columbus, OH, as part of its Smart City Challenge, but another $90 million came from a local business coalition as well as a sizable portfolio of hardware, software and support services from technology companies,” said Mark Schienberg, president, Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association. “Keeping that momentum of collaboration is what we want this conference to help drive.”

Specifically, the conference will address how to fund and turn fundamental shifts in mobility into lucrative business opportunities, promote access to jobs, make logistics smarter, connect visitors, empower citizens and make transportation more sustainable.

The Empire State of Mobility Conference is being co-produced by the C3 Group. Visit for information.
