Together we grow
6 June, 2024 by

In mid-May, the MOQO Summit 2024 took place in Aachen, a meeting of shared mobility operators, service providers and mobility experts from Europe, Australia and the USA. In the setting of the Digital Church, this 1.5-day event became a hub for ideas and innovation with the common mission of moving shared mobility forward.

As a MOQO partner, you can find a detailed documentation of the event in the Academy.

The best ideas often arise when people from different backgrounds come together. This was also the case at this industry meeting: Inspiring presentations, interactive workshops and plenty of time and space for networking were all under the motto of growing together.You make vehicles exclusively available to them and take on defined services. In return, you receive a fixed fee. 

The summit provided a platform for in-depth conversations and discussions around technological insights, operational strategies and visions of what the mobility of the future could look like. A summary of the key topics and insights can be found in this blog article.

What was the MOQO Summit 2024 about?

Together we grow! Growth doesn't just mean expanding into new markets or increasing the size of your fleet. Growth also means becoming more stable and gaining more clarity.

A stable foundation

We analyzed configurations, themes and functions and looked for ways to further develop and improve them to ensure quality and user satisfaction.

New possibilities

At the same time, we have explored new horizons: Sharing insights and best practices helps to create new structures, connections and business options.

The MOQO Summit gave participants the opportunity to:

Gaining insights and actionable knowledge from networking sessions, keynotes and workshops. Understanding the sharing platform and its functions even better.

Network: Making valuable contacts with like-minded shared mobility providers, industry experts, thought leaders and the MOQO team.

Impact: Shaping the future of shared mobility and the MOQO platform.

Learning from each other through talks

Seven talks by sharing providers, market experts and MOQO itself offered new perspectives and insights.

By integrating sharing offers together with on-demand services on the wegfinder platform, she links services and providers under the ÖBB umbrella brand. To this end, the focus of the collaboration with MOQO is on developing an attractive bikesharing offer for employees, but also for tourists and citizens. At the summit, she talked about challenges and opportunities in implementation and her assessment of the market in general.

                  Popcar is on a mission to change the way that Australia is mobile. To achieve this, the operator offers its carsharing services in several locations on Australia's east coast, with a focus on Sydney.

                  Frieder Bechtel, FLOYT

                  Integrating carsharing in rental car portals - What’s in it for operators?

                  What happens when a carsharing provider decides to integrate its vehicles on a large, well-known car rental portal? What is the difference compared to local MaaS platforms? How does the move change the operational business? FLOYT reported on specific examples and the effects on the carsharer. The operator of the portal also gave an insight into its plans for the coming years.

                  Michael Minis, MOQO

                  What's ahead and how to prepare as a shared mobility operator?

                  Demand and supply in shared mobility are changing faster than ever before. Opportunities for car and bike sharing operators are created by the ban of kick-scooters and a new level of cooperation between shared mobility operators and Mobility as a Service (MaaS) are required by many cities.

                  Michael knows about the evolution and relations in the shared mobility sector. Through numerous discussions with experts and by the release and development of software products. Based on this, he has been able to consult many operators and develop a suitable product strategy together with the MOQO team. Main requirements: scalability and design options for profitable business models, in this fast changing environment.

                  He shared his view on the status quo as well as the challenges and opportunities of the next 12 months.

                  Stefan Carsten, Mobility Expert

                  Stefan Carsten is a futurologist, an urban development and mobility expert. During his time at Daimler, he designed the concept for the car sharing service Car2Go - at a time when free-floating car sharing was not yet a common term. To this day, he is considered a thought leader and advises players from all areas of the mobility industry.

                  What is the status quo of the mobility revolution? Can shared mobility also work in rural areas? Which concepts can work? Stefan answered these questions and more in his talk at the MOQO Summit.

                  Learning with each other in workshops

                  We learn best from each other. The interactive workshop formats provided plenty of opportunity for this.

                  How the Summit directly influences the MOQO product

                  In the “Product Lab” and at the “App Feedback Station”, participants had the opportunity to provide feedback on new platform features and the MOQO app and discuss this directly with our product team.

                  The feedback collected now forms the basis for future changes and developments, and the first improvements have already been implemented.

                  Let's continue to drive innovation and collaboration

                  The MOQO Summit 2024 proved once again how important personal exchange within the industry is. After all, mobility does not change on its own - we must (continue to) work together.

                  We are already looking forward to seeing you again next year.
