TaaS Technology: 2 conferences on CAVs and Future Mobility & Energising Mobility

TaaS Technology hits Birmingham on the 9th and 10th July 2019, with a new and expanded agenda including 2 co-located Conferences: CAVs and Future Mobility and Energising Mobility.

The event will bring together international experts for two days of in-depth discussions and exhibits focused on the opportunities and challenges of a mobility future that leverages CAVs and TaaS technologies, plus the key topics surrounding Electric Vehicles (EVs), Battery/Energy Technology and Infrastructure.

The event will span 2 days, cover 15 key topics and have over 80 presentations as well as interactive panel sessions, featuring industry titans, noted thought leaders and experienced entrepreneurs.

"CAVs, EVs, Battery/energy, Infrastructure and Future Mobility continue to be hot topics. Transportation as we know it is ripe for disruption. With traditional car manufacturers, OEMs, software companies, component providers, battery technology, energy providers, infrastructure and new transportation companies investing billions of pounds into the research and development of realising future mobility systems, we are excited to be organising the 2nd TaaS Technology conference to connect, inform and inspire the Industry. It will be a great chance for the UK to show the developments we are making and for UK companies to learn more about the solutions our international partners are developing," said Sukhi Bhadal, Event Director, TaaS Technology Conference.
