About the Electric Vehicle Summit 2020

2019 was a hugely successful year in the world of Electric Vehicles. There was no shortage of positive news stories here in Ireland, from the government’s new plan for a million electric cars by 2030 to the arrival of several new models on our shores. Today, despite the global health crisis, there are encouraging signs for the industry. Global electric car sales could reach a record share of the overall car market this year. Analyst, BloombergNEF predicts that there will be less of a hit than the anticipated fall in sales of conventional cars, increasing the penetration of electric models into the overall market.

The Electric Vehicles Summit is a premier, established conference and exhibition held in Croke Park annually. This year our conference is going Hybrid! The live event will take place in Croke Park, Dublin with the full in-person conference experience, coffee breaks, exhibition stands showcasing the latest electric vehicle models and electric vehicle technology, networking opportunities, working lunch and much more. The virtual experience will give you the opportunity to log onto the summit from the comfort of your own home or office and avail of the full conference experience streamed directly to you, virtual exhibition stands and the opportunity to network virtually with other online delegates. Our full day conference programme will include live keynotes, presentations and debates as well as video streamed talks from international speakers.

This year’s conference will address the impact of the crisis, deliver an update on new government policy, as well as cover a wide range of subjects pertinent to the industry going forward. The summit is a high-level business forum based on the dual themes of business engagement and thought leadership from the most senior, influential and informed people in the sector.
