IAPCO is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year – a time to reflect some, but most importantly to look forward and prepare our industry for the next 50 years. In that spirit, IAPCO is celebrating once again those young talents who truly inspire through their passion and innovative thinking.»
For the 3rd EcoMobility World Festival in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, our awardee has transformed a local neighbourhood into a ecomobile community – a live demonstration of how to create an urban transportation culture within a historic neighbourhood. In addition – through effective story telling – children were educated on the benefits of ecomobility. Creating a true legacy, the green transportation introduced continues to be used in Kaohsiung City.
«Many talk about sustainability, but our awardee today is truly walking the talk» concluded Mathias.
The IAPCO Innovation award is in its fourth year, and again attracted high quality submissions. Three finalists each created a video describing their innovation, which was presented to the audience of the IAPCO Annual Meeting in Tokyo for the final vote.
The results were close and both runners-up deserve recognition for their innovative concepts around meeting design: Rosa Garriga Mora, Kenes Group and Christina Gotze, Congrex Switzerland.
