With the world’s first ever eSkootr Championship (eSC) to kick off in London in May, the team behind the racing series are bringing together the key players in micromobility, transport and sports governance for a high-level leadership forum.
eSC is a brand new category of sport, which will see thirty professional athletes go head-to-head on all-electric two wheelers that can reach speeds of up to 100 km/h.
Hosted at the Printworks London venue on Friday 13 May, invited delegates will debate key topics around new mobility, including how public policy can support the development of micromobility and how sport can help shape the public’s mindset.
As part of the event, eSC have agreed a partnership with leading micromobility publication Zag Daily, the daily source of news and views from the rapidly growing industry. Zag will manage the content and promotion of the event, curating a conference programme discussion and debate on the key issues in the sector.
“The eSkootr Championship is far more than just another racing series,” said Alex Wurz, co-founder of eSC.
“We are on a mission to develop new micromobility solutions in major city centres, where they are needed most, that are not only smart but also safe, inclusive and sustainable. Our London forum will bring together the brightest minds in the industry to help provide the answers to issues standing in the way of a smarter future. I can think of no better place to host this than in London, where eSC will kickstart a fantastic journey for its maiden season, and where the public use of e-scooters is currently a key issue of debate. Part of our aim is to change the perception of e-scooter use so we’re very excited to be leading this event.”
Richard Woods, founding partner of Zag Group, said: “We’re very proud to be working with the eSkootr Championship on this important event. The series has the potential to promote sustainable micromobility solutions on a global scale and we at Zag are very keen to follow its progress. We firmly believe that this developing technology will help alleviate road fatalities, air pollution and the climate crisis and that now is the time to shake up the urban landscape.”
Attendance at the forum is by invitation only, but you can register your interest in attending.
