WCX™: Technology. Business. Connections.

Because mobility technology spans multiple disciplines, industries, and applications, it’s imperative to stay up to date on the latest updates in propulsion, autonomous vehicles, smart architecture, systems engineering and safety.

The WCX™ World Congress Experience is where the engineering community convenes on mobility’s biggest hurdles from mass deployment of electric vehicles to developmental timelines for autonomous vehicles to understanding of global supply chain constraints impacting the automotive industry.

… and for the very first time whether you’re an engineer, manager or executive,  you can experience what WCX has to offer to advance your skill sets with in-person, live-streamed and on-demand content.
