RE-EXPERIENCE PAST SUMMITS

RE-EXPERIENCE PAST SUMMITS

Over the past two years, we have had more than 50 excellent public and private sector speakers and panelists from across the country (and Canada) come to the Northeast CAV Summit to share their expertise. This includes major automakers, ridesharing companies, universities and research institutions, technology providers, business and insurance leaders, proving grounds and pilot locations as well as federal, state, and local governments.  Each of these participants brought unique perspectives and provided considerable depth to the conversations about CAVs. More information about past summits, including agendas, presentations, speakers, and panelists are linked below.
