"As cities continue to grow, and more countries around the world expand technological access to more people, there's a lot of different philosophies around the ways that automobiles fit into the future of transportation," said Washington, D.C. Auto Show President and CEO John O'Donnell. "MobilityTalks is a unique forum centered at the intersection of automotive regulation and technology development, and this year's event will provide guests with the chance to meet with and learn from the leaders who will shape the future of global transportation."

Industry Media Day will be held on January 23, 2020, and will feature keynote addresses from automotive industry executives, domestic regulatory agency heads, and much more. It will also be the first chance for media members to experience the full 2020 Washington, D.C. Auto Show, which will display more than 600 new cars from over 35 different manufacturers.
