MOVING TOWARDS THE CITY OF THE FUTURE

December 1-2, 2020

Our Hamburg

We are all living in turbulent times. More than ever, cities play a crucial role in addressing some of today’s most challenging questions. Hamburg is one of the most liveable cities and a magnet for companies, investors, startups and specialists – and thus the perfect place to realize your ideas. At the same time, all major cities are facing various challenges, such as transport congestion and climate change.

This year’s Hamburg on Tour event is focused on how innovation can help improve our cities and our environment. We believe that only through collaboration we can find the best solutions for the cities of the future. Tel Aviv and Hamburg share a wide variety of advantages. This year’s Hamburg on Tour brings together amazing speakers from Israel and Germany, sharing their ideas and innovations, as a first step to jointly develop new disruptive solutions for our future cities. Renowned startups from Tel Aviv and key players from both cities discuss challenges in clusters ranging from logistics and mobility to aviation and hydrogen.

While we would love to meet you in person, the current situation requires us to host a fully digital Hamburg roadshow event in cooperation with the city of Tel Aviv. However, we are excited to announce the Future Hamburg Award 2021 during this event – Hamburg’s very own international startup award. The Future Hamburg Award is looking for the world’s best startups that have answers to some of the questions that will be discussed at the event. Stay tuned for more information about the award!

Let’s collaborate and forge solutions!
