Enthusiasts and industry professionals alike will have the opportunity to witness over 50 cutting-edge electric vehicles from around the world on display.
EVIS2023 features a two-day conference that has already attracted significant attention. With more than 100 speakers and over 50 conference sessions, the conference will cover a wide range of topics pertinent to the current and future landscape of e-mobility. Delegates, experts, and representatives from the mobility industry in dozens of countries will gather to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and advancements in the EV sector.
