Montréal to host 29th World Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition in 2016.
The announcement was made in Barcelona by Daniel Breton, the Parliamentary Assistant to the Premier for Transport Electrification, and Bryan Wynne, the President of the Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA).
“The holding of EVS29 in Montréal confirms Québec’s leadership role in addressing the profound changes affecting the international sustainable transportation industry. The Electric Vehicle Symposium is a must-attend event for the world electric vehicle industry,” said Mr. Breton.
Mr. Breton is in Catalonia with a Québec delegation of representatives from companies, research centres, universities and various government departments and agencies to participate in the 27th World Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exposition (EVS 27) as part of a research and innovation trade mission.
This is the seventh consecutive time that a delegation of representatives from Québec companies has participated in this forum and the first time that a representative of the Government of Québec has headed the mission.
EVS27 is the first opportunity to position Québec abroad and to promote its expertise following the launch of the Transportation Electrification Strategy.
EVS is the largest electric vehicle trade show in the world. It is a prime showcase for all types of vehicles and technologies, whether already on the market or still on the drawing board: rechargeable vehicles, hybrids, fuel cells, etc. The program includes an exhibition and a series of presentations.
It is also a can’t-miss event for building relationships with industry leaders. Each edition attracts an average of 3,000 participants.
