For the first time, GIE Objectif transport public, GART and UTP are holding this year’s edition of EuMo Strasbourg.
This is due to Paris hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the related demands on the events sector this year.
To sidestep any potential issues arising from this event in the Paris region and ensure the best possible events services, GIE Objectif transport public has opted for a solution with a difference, relocating to an attractive destination at the heart of Europe with a strong commitment to an ambitious mobility policy.
As home to the autumn session of the EU Parliament, Strasbourg is one of the EU’s three institutional capitals and has a strong focus on mobility; as such it was a natural choice for us.
STRASBOURG LOOKS FORWARD TO HOSTING US
The Strasbourg transport network is one of the best in France and a source of inspiration for professionals in a number of countries across Europe. It has the densest tram network in France (also a cross-border network, reaching into Germany), as well as having one of the country’s largest citywide cycle networks and a pedestrian master plan that promotes shared public space and seamless modal interaction. Served by the TGV-Est and Rhine-Rhône high-speed lines, Strasbourg is also a European rail interchange and the first city in France outside the Paris region to be developing a city-wide express rail network. Eurométropole Strasbourg will be able to show off all these assets to professionals attending the event.
Having the European Parliament to hand will also offer an opportunity to create ties with the institution and its newly-elected Euro-MPs.
Eurométropole Strasbourg is ideally placed to host this major event.
« We’re honoured and delighted to welcome this European event bringing together those who are most committed to mobility. Doing so is fully in line with Eurométropole’s commitment to promoting development, adaptation and innovation in public transport and changing mobility habits on a daily basis, including through our European Metropolitan Express Network which spans the area, buttressing a tram network undergoing major changes »
Pia Imbs, President, Eurométropole Strasbourg.
