We’re thrilled to announce Maifest 2018, our annual spring event on Sand Hill Road in the heart of Silicon Valley! As tech giants active in the autonomous and ride-hailing space make news headlines, our guiding question this year will be: “Autonomous, Connected and Supercharged: What will the Future of Mobility hold?”
Beginning at 5:30 pm, this evening event follows an afternoon conference connecting German automotive, mobility, telecommunications, energy and insurance companies with innovative early and growth-stage startups from across the US and abroad. Emphasis is placed on key trends such as Autonomous Vehicles (AVs), Electric Vehicles (EVs), Connected Car/Telematics, Charging, TNCs/ridesharing, urban mobility and logistics.
Join us for Keynote Presentations, Panel Discussion and Q & A with mobility experts from research, industry, and finance.
?Afterwards, enjoy our Bavarian Happy Hour with German beer, wine and full menu and even a performance by traditional dancers!?
