NEW YORK, Nov. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ideanomics (NASDAQ: IDEX) ("Ideanomics" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that Mr. Zhu Jun, Chief Operating Officer of Ideanomics' MEG division, will keynote The China Tourism Trip Convention in Guilin, China, on November 11, 2019. Mr. Zhu Jun will present the title: New Energy, New Generation, New Travel – Building a Mobile Energy Ecosystem". Yang Lan, media personality and wife of Ideanomics Chairman, Dr. Bruno Wu, is also a guest keynote speaker at the event.
"New energy solutions require a new generation of ideas. China is leading these initiatives and winning in blue sky environmental protection. MEG is building a business that enables the transportation solutions for a clean future. Electrification in the travel industry will provide a whole new level of growth and revenue opportunities, as well as contribute towards protecting our planet," said Mr. Zhu Jun, Chief Operating Officer of MEG. "The tourism industry play a unique and sensitive role in that its function is to take large numbers of people out to some of the most pristine natural environments, so it's important for the industry's future livelihood that it rapidly adopts clean energy solutions to help preserve those areas so that tourists can continue to enjoy the natural beauty our planet has to offer. Tour buses are somewhat unique in that many of them are required to travel great distances, which means stopping to recharge or swapping batteries. Having efficient EV solutions for the tour bus industry, so the tourism experience is as seamless as it is with fossil fuels, is critical to the success of EV enablement. We are speaking at the event to provide them with the confidence this is achievable today."
The financing market for EV's all across the ASEAN region is evolving rapidly. Ideanomics' MEG division is spearheading innovation around financing, in response to market demand, which differs from combustion engine vehicle financing.
"This is the first of our public marketing initiatives involving MEG and comes on the back of our being invited to participate with CTACA at the association level. With a million tour buses active throughout China, there is an opportunity to transition to clean energy vehicles which will help both modernize the tour operators fleets for a better customer experience today, as well as help to ensure a cleaner environment for the tourist of tomorrow," said Alf Poor, CEO of Ideanomics. "We are thrilled to be sponsoring this event and have Zhu Jun addressing the industry from a thought leadership perspective on how they can embrace EV enablement at scale quickly and efficiently, which is the reason we built our MEG division."
The CTACA announcement is one of several activities underway, as Ideanomics' technology ecosystem continues to gain recognition on the international stage. Recently Chinese regulators approved the first 197 blockchain firms including Ideanomics partners Ultrain, Bubi, and Jingtum.
