MOSCOW, July 12th 2018 - On today´s press conference of Crocus Group, the most outstanding event of this summer in the world of future technologies in Russia was presented: Mobilistic´18, technology festival. The Festival will be held from 29 August to 9 September in parallel with the next Moscow International Automobile Salon (MIAS).

While MIAS 2018 is gathering the current brightest novelties, Mobilistic will demonstrate the concepts of the future. Such extraordinary projects as e-mobility, and autonomous driving. Some of them have been already integrated into our lives thanks to intelligent technologies of sustainable development.

Russian premiere: Jaguar I-Pace

The project was presented by Emin Agalarov, First VP of Crocus Group and Georg Redlhammer, the author and developer of the Festival's concept. Jaguar Land Rover, who is one of the key partners of Crocus Group, also attended the press lunch. Vyacheslav Kuzyakov, Director General, Jaguar Land Rover Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan spoke about company's priority in innovative solutions and announced the Russian premiere of the new e-offroader Jaguar I Pace at the Festival. Besides Jaguar Land Rover, at the moment such brands as Porsche, ABB Formula E, Tesla, and Volgabus have confirmed their participation in Mobilistic as well.

New concept - New idea

The idea of Mobilistic is based on a bold dream of its creators about our future lives when mobility will become a part of a global sustainable development of economy and society. A new type of thinking is starting to emerge. Responsibility for the environment, social integration and economic advancement will go hand in hand with each other. This aspiration is reflected in the document "Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development", adopted by the United Nations in 2015. This document sets 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), intended to ensure environmental friendliness and constructive and humanistic development of human civilization.

Visitors of Mobilistic will have a unique opportunity to see and test e-mobility technologies and have an audio-visual experience at the "Future in a box". A visual concept of the Festival also continues the idea of innovation and conscious consumption of resources - Festival's organizers rejected the idea of building the ambitious development exhibition pavilions and competition of automotive brands for "the most beautiful" stand. At Mobilistic the exhibition sections will be standardized so that visitor's attention is focused only on products and services and there is no distraction to unnecessary details.

Steven Seagal opens Mobilistic´18

Emin Aglarov surprised the media, that Steven Segal will be our grand opener of the festival. He will hold a very emotional introduction speech on environmental care and sustainable thinking. A strong message that will underline Crocus Group comittement to make a change.

Crocus City: a U.N. "future city"

At the press conference Emin Agalarov also announced the start of collaboration with the United Nations with plans of action for Sustainable Development Goals implementation. Crocus City will be one of 25 pilot sites worldwide at the "SDG leadership platform", proving action on delivering to SDG´s.

Mobilistic'18 is a conceptually new space for demonstration of advanced solutions in the field of mobility. Smart solutions will create our future and at Mobilistic we give a glance to that. It is also the first visible action of Crocus Group to support "Sustainable Development Goals" of United Nations.
