Why Geneva ?

The Conference will take place in the framework of the Geneva International Motor show which is one of the six most prestigious auto shows, sometimes called the " Big Six " i.e. Frankfurt, Geneva, Detroit, Paris, New Delhi and Tokyo.

Among these, Geneva is recognised as the R&D showcase since prototypes, new equipment, technical breakthroughs as well as international partnerships are systematically announced on this occasion.

EEVC is proud and honoured to be part of this high level playing field for the world's automakers. The Conference participants will have access to the Auto salon where they will be able to see the cars & prototype but also to a dedicated EEVC exhibition displaying components, batteries, electric drive innovations or charging infrastructure for example.
