Global MICE Organisation Limited (GMOLx) has announced the launch of DRIFTx in Abu Dhabi.

The international thought-leadership and exhibition platform is dedicated to advancing the future of smart and autonomous mobility across air, land, and sea.

Anchored by the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO), which recently launched Abu Dhabi’s Smart & Autonomous Vehicle Industry (SAVI) cluster, DRIFTx will bring together global leaders aiming to shape the future of transportation and sustainable mobility.

Abu Dhabi’s SAVI cluster, it was shared, aims to unlock and amplify the global potential of smart and autonomous vehicle technologies and is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, R&D centres, and comprehensive value-added services within a conducive regulatory framework.

DRIFTx reportedly aims to serve as an international platform within this ecosystem, driving multi-disciplinary dialogue and collaboration between leaders and innovators from across the world, including multi-national organisations, governments, academia, regulatory bodies, and the global start-up community, as well as showcasing smart and autonomous mobility solutions across air, land and sea applications.

Set to be anchored in Abu Dhabi, DRIFTx will serve as a global platform featuring conferences, meetups, exhibitions, and entertainment.

The event aims to drive discussions and debate on the evolving trends, challenges, and opportunities that can accelerate the future of smart and autonomous mobility solutions.

DRIFTx will also showcase cutting-edge technologies and innovations from across the world.

Welcoming the launch of DRIFTx, Badr Al-Olama, Director General of Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO), said: “With growing urbanisation, smart and autonomous technologies stand as a transformative wave that will address mobility in light of complex challenges that are related to environmental sustainability, social equity, and urban planning. DRIFTx will serve as SAVI’s flagship platform that will foster cross-disciplinary collaboration to drive innovation across the sector, and cementing Abu Dhabi as the epicentre for advanced urban mobility that unites the automotive, aviation, and maritime sectors to shape a more connected, sustainable, and equitable future.”

Set to be held in April 2024, DRIFTx will drive multi-disciplinary discussions, foster collaboration, and showcase innovations that propel sustainable aviation, drone technology, smart road and rail systems, eco-conscious maritime solutions, and last-mile delivery solutions.

Namir Hourani, Managing Director of Global MICE Organisation Limited (GMOLx), said: “We are thrilled to be launching DRIFTx, supporting Abu Dhabi’s mission to pioneer smart and autonomous vehicle applications in the UAE and beyond. By bringing together key stakeholders in Abu Dhabi, DRIFTx is set to catalyse discussions and collaborations that will create a sustainable, innovative future that transcends borders and sets new benchmarks in the autonomous vehicle and mobility sector.”
