A Forth delegation is heading to Lyon, France to attend the International Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS) on May 19-22. EVS is the largest electric mobility industry event in the world.
Rotating between Asia, Europe and North America every 18 months, EVS attracts the top leaders and change-makers in the electric mobility industry. We're thrilled that EVS is coming to Portland, OR in June 2020 marking the first time it’s been held in the Pacific Northwest. The Forth team is looking forward to highlighting the Pacific Northwest’s leadership in electric, shared and smart mobility while we’re in Lyon!
For the sixth straight year, Forth will participate in the exhibition and several of our staff will speak and serve on panels. Executive Director Jeff Allen will discuss transportation equity; Senior Director of Public Affairs Jeanette Shaw will present on consumer engagement, and Program Manager Kelly Yearick will highlight utility engagement in transportation electrification. You can view their papers here:
