Shaping Cities: The Future of Mobility

Mishcon de Reya hosted a panel discussion on the future of mobility on Wednesday 26 June, as part of the firm’s technology-focused Shaping Cities series.

The event kicked off with a keynote address from Heidi Alexander, Deputy London Mayor for Transport, on London’s future transport landscape, followed by two high-level panel discussions focussing on transport and logistics innovation. The panellists discussed how technology is rapidly changing the way we move both people and goods – from driverless cars and on-demand public transport to drone deliveries and magnetic motors – and the huge impact this is having on London’s infrastructure and our built environment.

The transport panel, chaired by Mishcon partner Adam Rose, included: Heidi Alexander; Lucy Yu, Director of Public Policy at FiveAl; Matteo de Renzi, CEO of Western Europe at Gett; and Neil Fulton, Chief Operating Officer at Connected Places Catapult. The subsequent logistics panel, chaired by Mishcon partner Anju Suneja, comprised: Duncan Walker, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Skysports; Phill Davies, Co-Founder and Commercial Director at Magway; and Andrew Blogg, Co-Founder and Director of Future Aerial Innovations.

Previous Shaping Cities events have looked at the impact of technology on the built environment and the retail sector.
