New speakers have been confirmed for MobilityTalks International, as they will be up until the event itself on April 3 and 4, 2019. MobilityTalks precedes the opening of the 2019 Washington Auto Show and spotlights D.C. as the Public Policy Show on the international industry auto show circuit.
Two recently added speakers should be of particular interest to dealers: Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler and Lyft Chief Policy Officer Anthony Foxx. Future developments in the battle between EPA and California on fuel economy standards will surely affect Washington area dealers (see article on page 3).
A luncheon panel on April 3 will discuss “Communicating the Benefits of Advanced Technologies to New Vehicle Buyers.” Panel members include the following: Suzie Reineke of the Reineke Family Dealerships; representatives from Toyota, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, AAA, and Robert Bosch LLC; Peter Welch, CEO of NADA, will also speak. Several international speakers will speak throughout the day about the programs in their countries.
On Thursday, April 4, the talks will move to Capitol Hill in D.C. The schedule is still being confirmed.
