A gathering of the world’s most distinguished decision makers and business leaders in the field of alternative fuels and smart transportation for a series of on-stage interviews, panel discussions, case studies, and brainstorming sessions.

The Smart Mobility revolution is affecting the maritime domain as well; Shipping & port operations are heading towards  a hybrid, connected and autonomous era
The same technologies which led the Israeli ecosystem to excel in areas such as cyber, drones and autonomous vehicles , serve as building blocks for the future port, maritime and transportation applications.
