WCX 2020 World Congress Experience Canceled


Due to concerns around the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, SAE International has made the difficult decision to cancel the WCX 2020 World Congress Experience, originally scheduled for April 21-23, in Detroit. Before making this decision, we extensively monitored and evaluated health guidance from international health authorities, government- and corporate-imposed travel restrictions, and the recently declared State of Emergency issued by the State of Michigan.

WCX has long been the marquee industry event for showcasing technological innovations in the world of mobility, and we are currently evaluating alternate options for how to best deliver the technical content that has been developed to registered attendees. We remain firmly committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our members, customers, partners and staff who are attending our events, and apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused.

Please see our Cancellation Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.
