The Washington Auto Show® is a must-attend event for media professionals specializing in the automotive industry, transportation regulations and policy, mobility innovations, consumer-safety and clean air technologies. 

The 2018 Washington Auto Show Policy Days begin Tuesday, Jan. 23 with MobilityTalks International®, a two-day preview event designed for policymakers and advocacy leaders from across the country and the world to exchange ideas on best practices related to innovation and regulation around connected and autonomous vehicles. The changing landscape of transportation presents lawmakers and regulators with unique challenges and opportunities that can be more effectively addressed through partnership and collaboration.

Media day will be held on Thursday, Jan. 25, featuring keynote addresses from Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, while the 10-day consumer event will feature more than 600 new automobiles from nearly every major manufacturer, in addition to test-drive opportunities, family entertainment areas, appearances by local sports and entertainment stars, and much more.
