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 technology is 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.


Exhibitor, Startup and MatchMaker registration options available now.

500 MatchMaker Meetings are available in Silicon Valley on Oct 11 and online on Oct 12. To get your own set of curated, private introductions, select a package that includes the MatchMaker Service when you register as an exhibitor or attendee.



Exhibit tables, parking lot demos, startup tables, and exhibit sponsorships are available with or without unlimited MatchMaker introductions and with or without online participation. Choose the package that best works for your goals when you register.


Startup Packages

Startups exhibiting at Science Fair each have 5 minutes in the morning to put their best foot forward with a company pitch to mobility industry tech scouts and venture investors. Pitches are followed by questions and feedback from members.



Science Fair exhibits, including demos, startup tables and parking lot exhibits run on Oct 11 from 1-4 pm. Choose a Visitor Pass if you want to just browse, or choose the Participant Pass if you also want to hear the startup pitches and build your own schedule of private introductions.



A few select sponsor options are available. Sponsored tables have priority locations. Our Coffee and Lunch sponsors have branding, introductions, and stage time. And a sponsored pavilion accommodates many companies together with exhibitor benefits. Ask us for details.

 IN PERSON AND ONLINE EXHIBITS invite in-depth conversations with engineers and product managers, not public relations people. 


 EXHIBITORS COMMITTED TO PARTNERING WITH NEW TECH - whether from the existing supply chain, a venture funded startup, or a university lab. 


 IN PERSON AND ONLINE NETWORKING with car makers, vendors, startups, academics, and investors working on the future of automotive.
