Manifest Vegas 2023 has so much planned that it couldn’t fit all of its content into a two-day programme! The conference programme will officially kick off at noon on January 31st 2023 with three half-day tracks running between 13.00 and 17.00: Intelligent Infrastructure, Maritime & Ports, and Sustainability.
Manifest’s Intelligent Infrastructure Forum will give attendees the opportunity to hear about key issues across Mobility, 5G, Connectivity and City Infrastructures. Fortune Business Insights predicts that the Smart Infrastructure Market will reach US$434.16bn by 2028, and the leaders that are spearheading this shift will be at Manifest. The list of confirmed speakers includes the Autonomy Institute, Prompt Global, Velodyne Lidar, the State of Michigan, CALSTART, Embark Trucks and Waabi.
Maritime & Ports Symposium will build on the necessary conversations the show began at its 2022 event – gathering hundreds of attendees to learn the ins and outs of Ocean Freight, Big Data & IoT, Data Sharing, Visibility, Risk & Security, and Port Innovations. According to CNBC roughly $30bn in trade is on vessels anchored off the East and West Coast of the USA, and the situation is similar in Europe. There is clearly no slowing down of these bottlenecks and Manifest will address the major pain points (and solutions) disrupting the industry.
The Sustainability Summit will combine thought leadership from shippers, carriers, associations, technology leaders, investors and other ecosystem players to discuss key ESG issues across organisations; from Procurement and Supplier Relations to Transportation, Warehousing and Packaging. With regulation, investment and customers demanding a more sustainable world, the Manifest community recognises the importance of these conversations. Investors are following suit, having allocated approximately $64bn in total funding to cleantech businesses in 2021, and this figure is expected to surpass $100bn in the next few years.
