IAA Mobility Conference was all over Munich with many familiar and new names around all showing off their new and exciting products. But what does all this mean to us? How will it affect our lives? The panel discussion will start with a vision of a day in the life of an average Munich family in 2032. What will their lives be like? How do they get around? How to they work, learn, meet up, communicate? What is their social life like? Is the planet a better place?

The panel will then discuss the various aspects of this view. Is it realistic? Is it progress?  What stands in the way, or what will stop us? How can we make such changes in such a short time? Is 10 years really a short time?

The audience is invited to post questions to our expert panellists during the discussion and at the end we will open up microphones to all who wish to stay on and discuss further.

Note: Our panellists are all experts in this field with many years of experience. This is a sensitive topic and is highly competitive as we have seen during the IAA Conference. As such, each of the panellists will be giving their personal views based on personal experience and views, and not reflections of their employers activities and strategies.
