Time to rethink corporate mobility at the SMI in Dublin

At the upcoming Smart Mobility Institute (SMI) in Dublin on 16 November, three international fleet and mobility managers will share their methods of introducing alternative mobility. Click here to discover the complete programme and to register.

The emergence of new forms of corporate mobility (e.g. e-bike schemes, car-sharing and zero-emission vehicles) combined with technological advances and the growing adoption of the hybrid working model are driving a shift away from the dedicated company. For employees, the value of mobility-related compensation and employment benefits is closely intertwined with how and where they live, work and travel.

This is making the area of corporate mobility increasingly complex and user-centric. As a result, we are seeing a more holistic approach to corporate mobility among businesses, mobility providers and governments alike. 

Immerse yourself in the world of corporate mobility 
Here are just a few highlights from our programme:

1.    Ask the Expert

In a unique stand-up session, three of today’s best mobility experts in Europe (and Fleet Europe award nominees) will shine a light on their approach, lessons learned and best practices when collaborating with various stakeholders to introduce smart and alternative mobility into their strategy. 

This ‘Ask the Expert’ session is not to be missed by anyone who wants to benefit from the insights and experiences from leading mobility managers in Europe, to learn how they can successfully enrich their own fleet strategy with smart and alternative mobility.

2.    Rethinking Mobility in Ireland

The coronavirus pandemic provided a bold opportunity to rethink how people are getting around. Before the lockdowns, many places in Ireland – and particularly Dublin – were characterised by busy roads, severe traffic congestion and long journey times. But there are signs of change, and Dublin now ranks 35th out of 404 cities on TomTom's Traffic Index. Between 2019 and 2021, congestion levels in the city dropped from 48% to 36%. In other words, the average delay on a 30-minute trip fell from 28 minutes in 2019 to 11 minutes in 2021. How did Dublin achieve this?

Attend this keynote to learn how initiatives such as Mobility Platform Ireland (MPI) join forces with corporates, communities and academics to promote sustainable mobility.

4.    Car-sharing, e-bikes, e-scooters – Is this the future of corporate travel?
