Autonomous vehicle technologies will dramatically change how we interact with vehicles; McKinsey estimates that 50 percent of new cars in 2030 could be highly autonomous.  Laws and guidelines are being established at the state and federal level, but significant uncertainty still exists.

Policy: What major policies or regulations have advanced the autonomous vehicle industry and what are the real & perceived issues that policy must now address? 

Markets: What are the early market opportunities and challenges, given policy and technology limitations? Where are the greatest opportunities for entrepreneurs?

Business Models: What kinds of new business models will accelerate the adoption of AVs?  How will the role of the traditional OEM evolve?  

The speakers will each give keynote introductions sharing how they got involved in the autonomous industry, how it has developed during this time and their vision for the future. Following the keynotes, a moderated fireside chat will discuss industry challenges and opportunities and the policy solutions required for success.

A Special VIP Dinner & Reception will be held for <35 attendees concurrent with the regular dinner & networking.  An upscale dinner will be provided, with the opportunity to get "up close & personal" with Alex and John.
