One of the main attractions of SUM Bilbao 19 is that it offers the opportunity to connect with different stakeholders related to the sustainable mobility sector. This is due to the nature of the Congress which will provide a space in which multiple stakeholders, with decision-making capacity to transform urban mobility, can gather and exchange perspectives, thus also aligning it with the achieving of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SUM Bilbao 19 will be attended by representatives of local governments, international institutions, companies from the automotive, energy, technology, start-ups and representatives of research centres, which are interested in showing their initiatives as well as learning from other attendees.

Therefore, taking advantage of this context, SUM Bilbao 19 will enable the realization of alliances and synergies between possible strategic partners by facilitating the possibility for attendees to expand their network of contacts and promote their professional profiles.
