The leading international event devoted to electro-mobility, EVS32 will be held at Lyon Eurexpo from Sunday 19 May to Friday 22 May 2019. Co-organised by AVERE and LIVE! BY GL EVENTS, the theme of this year’s Symposium is “a world of e-motion”.
A wide-ranging program that addresses the key issues concerning the future of mobility
EVS32 includes conferences aimed at industrial manufacturers, scientists and institutions, an exhibition with more than 150 exhibitors, 160 lectures and a series of plenary meetings for professionals. There is also a “Ride and Drive” area open to the general public, which will help raise awareness about sustainable mobility.
Visitors will have the opportunity to test cars, two-wheel electric vehicles, hoverboards, skateboards and many other innovations in the field of electric vehicles in an area covering more than 3,000m². Manufacturers and institutions will also be able to attend the AEC2019 (AVERE E-Mobility Conference) program, a first at the EVS.
Cutting-edge conferences on topics linked to electro-mobility
Over the course of 4 days, participants will have the opportunity to attend several conferences addressing various themes, such as the development of recharging infrastructures, the digitisation of transport, the role of hydrogen in electric mobility and the role of public policies in the development of carbon-free mobility.
EVS32 will be welcoming Élisabeth Borne (French Minister of Ecological and Solidarity Transition, in charge of Transport), Laurent Wauquiez (President of the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Regional Council), Philippe Monloubou (CEO of Enedis), and his Serene Highness Prince Albert of Monaco. Many major groups will be attending the event, such as Groupe Renault, EDF and Michelin.
LYON, a city at the forefront of innovation and new mobility solutions
After Germany in 2017 and Japan in 2018, the next Electronic Vehicle Symposium will be held in France. EVS32, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, has chosen LYON to host its symposium. As a pioneering city in electric vehicles – for example, with the autonomous electric shuttle-bus that has been operating for more than two years in the Confluence district -, Lyon is home to many companies and clusters working on these key societal themes.
The International Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exposition (EVS) series is recognized as the premier event for academic, government and industry professionals involved in electric drive technologies. The EVS series began in 1969 as an academic forum for global networking and the exchange of technical information. As electric drive technologies progressed from the classrooms and laboratories into the marketplace, EVS expanded into an event both academic and business oriented. Today, the EVS series is recognized as the global electric transportation industry’s premier and largest forum, showcasing all forms of technologies in the market place and on the drawing boards–from low speed battery electric vehicles to fuel cell electric buses. The event attracts academic, government and industry leaders from around the world who are interested in exploring and understanding the technical, policy and market challenges to a paradigm shift toward use of electric transportation technologies.
