Covestro, one of the leading producers of high-performance polymers in North America, has stepped forward as the first materials supplier to host a mobility summit exploring the disruptive trends that are transforming the future of transportation. The half-day event will be held December 3, 2018 at Pittsburgh, home to Covestro’s North American headquarters.

The first-of-its-kind summit is called “RoadTrip 2030: Designing today for the passengers of tomorrow.” RoadTrip 2030 will bring together the innovative players that are leading the charge toward a driverless future – from automakers, suppliers and ridesharing companies to research, engineering and design institutes. The diverse perspectives will converge in a dynamic program exploring the trends, concepts and materials that are shaping the future of automotive mobility.

The summit will also serve as the launchpad for Covestro’s new virtual reality program, showcasing the critical role that materials will play in designing autonomous vehicle interiors that cater to diverse passenger needs. The immersive experience will transport attendees to the year 2030, where they can hop into the passenger seat of a virtual rideshare.

“Designing for the passengers of tomorrow will require an unprecedented level of collaboration from industries throughout the value chain,” said Currie Crookston, head of innovation at Covestro, who will also serve as master of ceremonies at the event. “That’s why we’re so excited to convene such a diverse group of visionaries, in a city that has become a national hub for emerging vehicle technologies.”

“We’ve been working closely with leading designers and industry experts to research mobility trends and visualise how those trends will impact the passenger experience a decade from now,” added Crookston. “RoadTrip 2030 presents us with the perfect opportunity to share our vision of the future and, hopefully, inspire the innovative thinking and collaborative solutions that will one day bring it to life,” he concluded.
