Hi everyone! Just me checking in with some fantastic news that I felt obliged to write about.
Along with AutoSens, our sister event series in the international vehicle perception sector, we are taking over a major part of The Confused.com London Motor Show 2018 with a brand new Autonomous Vehicle Zone.
It’s remarkable to think that we’ve come so far in only 16 months since we launched, and that we’ll leapfrog to join the likes of the largest auto events in the world to tell the story of the future of transport.
I have started chatting to people about this announcement over the last couple of weeks, and it’s clear that 2018 is going to be a fantastic year for the sector, particularly in the UK – and that means we are expanding too, as our in-house team approaches double figures.
New courses are coming (both accredited and online), new technology is coming, recruiters are getting busier and investment is accelerating across Europe, so it’s a great time to be thrust into the public’s imagination to help changing hearts and minds, talking about the challenges and opportunities ahead, and sharing the journey.
This announcement will be seen more widely by the public, the mainstream and automotive media over the coming days, and of course we are keen to flesh out the announcement with more details of the features, exhibitors and exciting discussions that we’ll be able to bring to you in May 2018.
Finally, a treat for those of you that are avid fans.. ticketing for Self Driving Track Days will be live soon, and we’ll be giving away one place at the July event in Milton Keynes before Christmas to one lucky person that joins the mailing list in the first two weeks of December 🙂
Have a great holiday season!
