"Cologne is well-known for being open and on the move. polisMOBILITY is bringing the mobility of the future to the whole city and to our vibrant today."
Henriette Reker, Mayor of the City of Cologne
Ministry of Transport of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia
"The future of mobility is digital, connected and, increasingly, driverless. Here in North Rhine-Westphalia we have created an impressive network of scientists, researchers, start-up companies, politicians and public administrators to swiftly capitalise on the opportunities digitalisation offers for better, safer and cleaner mobility. polisMOBILITY is therefore a perfect fit for Cologne. The mobility of the future will be researched, developed and become a tangible reality in North Rhine-Westphalia as quickly as possible. That’s because connected mobility solutions are needed to improve the experience of living in and visiting our cities and our rural and suburban areas.”
Hendrik Wüst, Minister of Transport for the State of North Rhine-Westphaliawww.vm.nrw.de
Alliance for Mobility of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia
"Mobility of people and goods is constantly changing and is in increasing demand. Digitization opens up new mobility options for society and the economy, but also opportunities for quality improvements, effective and efficient processes, and reduced environmental and climate impact. Mobility is equally a prerequisite for social participation and for economic success, growth, prosperity and employment. Mobility must be thought of from the user's perspective."
"With polisMOBILITY, we are casting the complex correlations surrounding the mobility-friendly city into a format that presents innovative solutions not only in the exhibition halls, but also in the urban environment and thus makes them tangible for a broad audience. Urban space will be the focus of a comprehensive exchange between companies, municipalities, urban planners and interested citizens. I am delighted that together with the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the city of Cologne and Prof. Dr. Busmann with his polis Convention, we are making this Koelnmesse project a reality."

"By participating in polisMOBILITY, ZVEI is showing how diverse the future of mobility is. Above all, it is about climate-friendly, technology-diverse and flexible mobility solutions for fast-growing urban areas. Here, intermodal transport is of special importance. Koelnmesse and ZVEI are united by the conviction that electric, networked and digital solutions are key to sustainable and safe mobility."

“The guiding principle of the functional, car-centric city has been a fundamental premise of city planning for many decades. In view of global technological developments in digitalisation, artificial intelligence and energy storage, we are now on the threshold of a ‘mobility-centric’ city that will open up brand-new possibilities for designing sustainable and liveable cities. With polisMOBILITY, we are keen to support this transformation and be a partner in the dialogue between the worlds of business, politics and urban society.”
Johannes Busmann, CEO Müller + Busmann GmbH & Co.KG
"For the success of electromobility, several million charging stations will have to be installed in the coming years. And this is where municipalities, cities and communities play an essential role.
Therefore, we are pleased to organise a top event together with the world-renowned Messe Köln to discuss the essential success factors of electromobility with representatives from the municipal sector."
Christian Hahn, CEO Hubject GmbH

"Digital communities and the mobility of tomorrow: Not only infrastructure, systems and sensors need to be connected, but also the people who use them.

"Mobility is one of the central future fields of all cities.
