Transport for Greater Manchester is partnering with the UITP as part of the EU-funded international IMOVE project to tackle tough urban mobility challenges with a weekend of innovation and collaboration. This event gathers passionate developers, digital artists, IoT experts, innovators, and business savvy professionals, to bring about the pro-social and environmental potential of 'Mobility as a Service'. During the weekend we will help you bring your mobility innovation idea into reality. We will give you a crash course in running a start-up and see if you come up with the next killer idea!

Is the future of travelling booking via voice of Amazon Alexa or Google home? Or a Facebook Chat concierge tailoring your journey to all of your needs? Could it be a simple journey app that help you discover a quieter part of a city?
