Government/Industry Meeting

January 28-30, 2025 | Washington, D.C.

Exclusive Insights into the Politics of the Mobility Industry

For more than 40 years, SAE’s Government/Industry Meeting (GIM) is where executives from the automotive industry unite with agency leaders from state and federal government to discuss the latest mobility technology, regulatory policy, and what is forthcoming for the industry. This neutral forum ensures all sides have a chance to weigh in – providing a full picture of the current and future landscape of the industry.

The 2025 technical program will serve as a framework for these conversations that is not available anywhere else. Attendees will explore critical issues like safety, emissions controls, and energy conservation from the perspectives of government agencies and the OEM community.

The important conversations that happen only at GIM will have a profound impact on both private and public sectors. Take this opportunity to influence the industry’s direction. Join us next January in Washington DC.

This conference is the best conference of the year in terms of bringing together industry and policymakers in one place.

Best conference hands down. The size is just right for bringing together lots of good people to connect with and actually have time and space to connect with them. The content was excellent across multiple tracks.

Great opportunity to see what is going on in vehicle safety and to network with both industry and government colleagues.
