With traditional car manufacturers, OEMs, software companies, component providers, energy companies, government and new transportation companies investing billions of pounds into the research and development of CAVs and future mobility systems, we are excited to be organising the 2nd TaaS Technology conference to connect, inform and inspire those shaping the revolution in mobility," said Sukhi Bhadal, Event Director, TaaS Technology Conference.

The two-day conferences and exhibition will be a unique event allowing for education, influence and networking between the major international players who are driving forward the new mobility revolution, a revolution which has the potential to save lives and bring new mobility solutions to millions of people," added Bhadal.
"The TaaS technology conference has quickly become the "must attend" UK event for the ITS sector. The 2018 programme was terrific, and the event was well organised, informative, interactive and enjoyable for the participants. I look forward to seeing you in 2019 and discussing how smart mobility is benefiting society," Richard Harris, Director at HMI Technologies and a member of the conference program board.
"With the Success of the TaaS Technology conference in 2018, I am very much looking forward to returning next year. For 2019, the co-located twin conferences of "CAVs and Future Mobility" and "Energising Future Mobility", means that there will be a depth that enables participants to dig down into new learnings and insights. With the dramatic growth of the New Mobility sector, transportation and automotive are in the box seat for an exciting road ahead, and it's at TaaS Technology where you'll find all the latest developments and trends," added James Carter, Principal Consultant at Vision Mobility and a member of the conference program board.
