Kathleen Van Brempt, member of the European Parliament, responsible for Committee on Industry, Research and Energy will be joining nexxworks' Future of Mobility Tour in San Francisco in December.

Nexxworks’ Future of Mobility Tour will allow business people from all kinds of industries to experience the impact of the ACES - autonomous, connected, electric and shared - trends in mobility on their own sector. These evolutions will go far beyond the transportation sector: the entertainment, healthcare, restaurant, hospitality industries, governments and many more will be completely transformed by them. But this is only a threat for those who keep their eyes closed. For those willing to grab this disruption with both hands, it’s a huge opportunity for business model change. And it’s the latter type of pioneer that we’ll be taking with us to San Francisco.

“This paradigm change is exactly the reason why we are over the moon that a politician like Kathleen Van Brempt, will be joining us”, explains nexxworks Partner and Future of Mobility tour guide Rik Vera. “Typical tour participants are C-level business people and entrepreneurs, and if we want Europe to stay relevant in this beautiful ACES future, it’s essential that governments will collaborate with private sectors. So it’s highly relevant to have Kathleen with us to bridge both worlds.”

“I’m very much looking forward to experiencing the future of mobility and other industries in San Francisco”, ads Kathleen Van Brempt. “Europe is at this defining crossroads – air pollution, job loss, noise pollution, etc. - with a desperate need for new ideas in mobility, and I would love to be a part of that by letting the ACES trends inspire me in this innovation capital. I really want to help make sure that Europe will not just plug into this current transition moment, but help create it. It’s the only way we’ll be able to keep ourselves relevant, and it can only happen if governments and the business world will help enforce one another.”
