The Cities & Regions Forum will offer delegates an unprecedented platform to engage with city planners, officials and financial institutions, exploring the challenges and opportunities that are experienced in bringing AAM to life in populated areas on a local, regional and national scale. With leading cities having already adopted key initiatives, the Cities & Regions Forum will highlight the successful partnerships in place and provide insights into how efficient strategies and roadmaps can be implemented to deliver AAM.
