Once-a-year expo showcasing partnership-ready mobility innovation

Autotech Council's Annual Science Fair gives the Silicon Valley an opportunity to see what cutting edge technology companies are working on in the mobility industry. OEMs, vendors, tech companies and industry hopefuls exhibit side by side to introduce their innovations to strategy, R&D, scouting, and partnership executives from across the mobility industry.

While the layout may be reminiscent of a High School Science Fair, the technologies are not! Companies leading the automotive, transportation, and mobility industries into the future are committed to innovation - both to innovating themselves and to partnering with the best innovations available whether those are found in their existing supply chain, a venture funded startup, or a university lab.
