Government/Industry Meeting

January 18-20, 2022 │ Washington, District of Columbia and Online



This annual conference provides government policy, regulatory makers, and the automotive industry a much-needed neutral forum to discuss the effect of US government regulation, technology, and customer acceptance on future vehicle design. No other industry event unites all these critical players together – whether you prefer to attend in-person or online – to discuss the ever-changing landscape for safety, emission control, fuel efficiency, and automated vehicles.

What You Will Learn

Attendees will hear – from government regulatory agencies, the OEM community, and supplier companies – the latest input and data that directly affects legislation and regulations for automakers, as well as the long-term strategies OEMs are employing to meet stringent government regulations.  These essential discussions between both parties help drive automotive advancements.

What to Expect

Over three thought-provoking days you can participate in top-notch technical sessions, roundtable discussions, the NHTSA/SAE Cybersecurity workshop, and hear from influential keynote presenters…plus plenty of networking opportunities during organized breakfasts, a multitude of scheduled breaks, and evening receptions.

*This event is co-located with the Washington Auto Show.
