Expanded MobilityTalks International at The Washington Auto Show

MobilityTalks International, which had its premiere at the 2017 Washington Auto Show (WAS), boasts an expanded schedule for 2018 with speakers from all over the world. The day and a half of panel discussions fits well with Washington’s status as the Public Policy Auto Show.

The 2018 MobilityTalks during WAS Industry/Media Days, Jan. 23-24, will focus on the development and regulation of autonomous vehicles.  Autonomous vehicles will play an increasing role in American transportation in coming years, and it would be wise for dealers and other industry players to be well informed.
