Canadian electric vehicle and sustainable energy companies are being offered a special package by the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATA) to allow them to participate in the global electric transportation industry's premier and largest forum on electric mobility. In addition to the global attraction, China is itself the world's largest domestic car manufacturer and an early adopter of electronic mobility.
EVS25 showcases all forms of technologies in the market place and on the drawing boards--from low speed battery electric vehicles to fuel cell electric buses. The event attracts academic, government and industry leaders from around the world who are interested in exploring and understanding the technical, policy and market challenges to a paradigm shift toward use of electric transportation technologies.
Participants will be able to attend EVS25 for a special rate of $1,000, or 50% of the international and domestic in-China airfare, which-ever is less. This includes ground transportation, hotels and meals.
Participants will be able to meet a global concentration of industry and public sector prospects, develop prospects, attend forums, tour the trade show, show their corporate image, and catch the latest trends in e-vehicle research.
