Public Policy Preview Days:

The public policy show on the global auto show circuit, The Washington Auto Show, sets the stage for solutions.

Advancing a safe and sustainable automotive industry requires the collaboration of key leadership. The Washington Auto Show demonstrates its commitment to that cause with two Public Policy Preview Days that put innovation in motion by drawing those at the forefront of industry and public policy. The Washington Auto Show Policy Summit on Capitol Hill and the full slate of news announcements and special events at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, capitalize on the show's pivotal address and, consequently, access.

Underscoring The Washington Auto Show's mission is its partnership with SAE International, which co-locates its annual Government/Industry Meeting with the show. Accordingly, SAE members are welcome to tour the show and all media attending the SAE Government/Industry Meeting may receive credentials for attending show press events.

The ten-day public show continues to draw government leadership in addition to the full demographic range of the coveted metropolitan Washington consumer audience. The Washington Auto Show is the largest public show in the city, serving a population that is among the most affluent and educated in the nation.

The show will continue to present its "Advanced Technology SuperHighway," a 65,000-square-foot exhibit of some of the industry's most promising technologies in safety and sustainability.
