Milan - May 30, 2016 – We are pleased to announce the special event "Leading the Way Forward" will be held on May 30, 7:00 pm at the WCRR 2016 Congress Venue Auditorium. We specifically chose WCRR as the perfect stage to promote the groundbreaking Hyperloop project that involves both long-term vision and the near future.
We, at MERMEC, believe the only way to envision the future is to build it with facts. A pioneering talk to free our imagination on the opened possibilities and to outline the boundaries of the future, tangible scenarios.
The CEOs of Hyperloop One, Transpod, Italian Railways and MERMEC, together with Italian Minister of Research, Universities and Education, will discuss the future of innovation and research in the transportation industry.
