What makes this event unique?

we.CONECT established new conversational processes like world cafés, bar camps, open space and more than 20 interactive formats which are based on scientific principles. This concept is module-based to fit the needs of the conference attendees. While having traditional formats like keynotes, use cases and solution studies, it opens up room for deep driving discussions, networking and knowledge transfer.

About the Tech.AD Event Series:

Founded in 2012, Tech.AD Europe has quickly become Europe’s leading conference for OEMs, Tier Ones and automotive suppliers to meet and discuss the technical road ahead for autonomous vehicles and respective ADAS technologies. One year after the event was established in Europe, Tech.AD was successfully held in the USA. At both events international autonomous vehicle experts give insights into their innovations, concepts and present the latest results in their research and workings on autonomous vehicles. The different conference formats address a variety of thematic areas relevant to a cross-industry AD audience from companies like Audi, BMW, Volkswagen, Ford, Zenuity, NVIDIA, Bosch, Continental, Denso, Delphi, Volvo, Groupe PSA, Renault, Hyundai, Tesla, May Mobility, zoox and many more. In 2018, we.CONECT Global Leaders won the Conference Award 2018 in the category “Best Conference Series” for the Smart Mobility and Automotive Event series – of which Tech.AD belongs to. The first edition of the Tech.AD China will be held from May 06-07, 2019 in Shanghai. The B2B event series is organized by we.CONECT Global Leaders, which specialized in creating interactive business events and business communities, headquartered in Berlin, Germany.
