Main Event 2015
Once a year, EcoMotion holds an event which attracts innovators from all disciplines in Smart Transportation. Ecomotion's annual "unconference" is a spectacular showcase of excellence in innovation and entrepreneurship in the sector.
Our First and Second Event took place at the Sea Center in Caesarea.
EcoMotion 2014 hosted 400 participants from 10 countries, which included the display of dozens of projects, lectures, new innovations and break-through ideas, growing international interest in the developments in this field in Israel, and a display of the strength of the local smart transportation community.
This year we will surprise you with a different location - The Peres Center for Peace, in 132 Kedem St., Tel Aviv-Jaffa.
The UnConference Concept and Agenda
An UnConference is a participant-based event. As one can grasp from its name, the "unconference" is a conference with an irregular structure. It is up to you to determine the content, atmosphere and tone. The entire event is based on the projects that you prepare. Participants who attend the unconference are welcome to listen to the projects that they find most interesting and attractive. Only YOU determine what happens! The concept has been tested in similar innovation events, which were all resounding successes; such as "MACHANET", "GeekCon" and " Kinnernet".
So, we won't have a traditional schedule, and it will look like something like this (the Smart Transportation exhibition will take place outside through the day).
Here are the spaces that will host the lectures during the event:
The Main Hall
Up to 200 people
The Underground Station
Up to 150 people (we will of course have chairs during the event)
The Conference Room
Up to 12 people
Up to 40 people
Outside Exhibition and Café
Some other interesting activities that will happen during the event:
- The Accelerator Demo Day! Our first wave of the Smart Transportation Accelerator, where five very interesting startups will present their work and products to investors.
- EcoMotion Challenge 2015 Finals! Ten teams with innovative smart transportation ideas will compete for a prize pool of 35K NIS.
- The Accelerator 2nd Wave Finals! Ten teams will compete for the five open slots in our next accelerator wave (100K NIS per project, office space, mentoring and advising program).
