Largest global eMobility brainstorm taking place in Amsterdam
The Netherlands is claiming its place as sustainable mobility frontrunner
Amsterdam, March 6th, 2018 – EVBox is proud to announce that next week, on March 13th, the largest ever brainstorm on sustainable mobility will take place in the Passenger Terminal in Amsterdam. 500 professionals from over 30 countries worldwide will come together at the rEVolution 2018 event, organized by leading global manufacturer of electric vehicle charging stations EVBox, to discuss the future of eMobility.
According to Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO of EVBox, the Netherlands is internationally considered as a frontrunner on electric mobility:
“For many countries, sustainability is not yet a high enough priority. In the Netherlands, we have really shown to be ahead of the curve internationally with regard to sustainable transport — something we often underestimate. Sustainability should be the main topic of our generation, as it’s obvious we cannot continue the same way we have. Globally we’re lacking a strong policy, meaning we’re exhausting the Earth’s natural resources at an alarming rate. Mobility and transportation is an integral part of this topic. That is why at rEVolution on March 13th we are facilitating this brainstorm — to bring experts from all over the world together to speed up this transition to a sustainable world.”

The mobility industry is going through a profound change right now; nobody exactly knows what future transport will look like.
