About the Electric Vehicle Summit 2020

2019 was a hugely successful year in the world of Electric Vehicles. There was no shortage of positive news stories here in Ireland, from the government’s new plan for a million electric cars by 2030 to the arrival of several new models on our shores. Today, despite the global health crisis, there are encouraging signs for the industry. Global electric car sales could reach a record share of the overall car market this year. Analyst, BloombergNEF predicts that there will be less of a hit than the anticipated fall in sales of conventional cars, increasing the penetration of electric models into the overall market.

The Electric Vehicles Summit is a premier, established conference and exhibition that is normally held in Croke Park annually. This year, to adapt to the current environment and the growing demand for delegates to enjoy the conference experience in an online manner, the Electric Vehicles Summit is going Virtual! While delegates will join in from the comfort of their homes and offices across Ireland and around the world, the event itself will be broadcast live from our dedicated studio in Dublin. Many of our speakers and panellists will appear live on stage, while our international keynotes and participants will be video-conferenced in to join the conversation.

Delegates will have the opportunity to step into the unique virtual summit environment, which includes access to the main virtual conference stage for the full day, live speaker & panel Q&A sessions, a virtual exhibition hall, copies of presentations & content post-event, as well as the opportunity to network, connect and chat with fellow online attendees, speakers and partners in real time.

This year’s conference will address the impact of the crisis, deliver an update on new government policy, as well as cover a wide range of subjects pertinent to the industry going forward. The summit is a high-level business forum based on the dual themes of business engagement and thought leadership from the most senior, influential and informed people in the sector. This innovative event is about making the most of the opportunities presented by EV’s, creating partnerships, ensuring stakeholder collaboration and implementing business models to facilitate further adoption into the market.
